  • IPOs: stirred, but not shaken

    It wouldn't be a proper IPO season without a few duds.

  • Green market doesn't need govvies

    Market participants are clamouring for sovereigns to join France and enter the green bond market. It would likely help the market, but would it help the environment?

  • The strong and stable eurozone

    The EU has caught the rest of the world on the hop. Years of neglecting structural reform, anaemic growth, all manner of financial crises, domestic political disruption, ructions with Greece — and now divorce with the UK — have variously driven predictions of death for both the Union and the euro. It hasn’t turned out like that.

  • If it ain't prime, it's subprime

    A trend in the US over the past couple of years has involved securitization issuers doing everything possible to avoid using the term subprime. Such verbal chicanery does their market no favours.

  • Securitization industry success: a win for the little guy?

    The European securitization industry’s “simple, transparent and standardised” regulatory framework has finally been pushed through, with industry practitioners as well as supportive bureaucrats in Brussels saying it will help boost the flow of lending to Europe’s small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Time will tell if those businesses actually feel the benefit.

  • Small banks should crack on with non-preferred

    There are few barriers and obvious incentives to entering the non-preferred senior market. Smaller European banks should join the party.

  • Trust the covered bond rating

    Moody’s covered bond ratings are now almost as lenient as those of DBRS, which shouldn’t weaken faith in either agency — arguably, it is Fitch and S&P that have lagged behind. But as the ECB stops buying, trust in ratings will be all the more important.
