Is the credit market party over?

06/04/2018

The first quarter of 2018 was one of the best ever enjoyed by the credit markets.

Spreads tightened at the start of the year and issuance volumes overcame a slow start, with a near record of over EUR80bn of European credit issuance in a four-week stretch during the quarter.

Then, confidence started to lose momentum, undermined by fears of wider spreads, higher rates and global geopolitical tensions. So is the credit market party coming to an end?

We don’t think so. Liquidity remains strong and execution risk can be managed with the proper debt advisory expertise that takes multiple parameters into consideration and combines with global distribution power to deliver results – even in the toughest market conditions.
