    IGM-july-2022-global

    In APAC USD bond sales went from bad to worse in July 2022 managing to produce just USD14.629bn of issuance (including Japan), the lowest of any month so far this year. Single currency supply in Europe more than halved m-o-m in July (-54%) as pervasive growth and inflation fears weighed on activity across all IG asset classes. The EUR IG corporate market witnessed the biggest slowdown (both absolute and percentage) and saw its weakest July in fourteen years. July Issuance volume bucked the trend in the US surpassing forecasts but was heavily dominated by the financial sector, which accounted for two-thirds of the total. Domestic FIG issuance comprised 48% (USD45.05bn) with Yankee FIGs making up another 17% (USD16.2bn) of the total volume.
