The EUR-denominated IG corporate bond market has successfully navigated its way through regular bouts of broader market volatility this year. However, despite suggestions that some valuations are beginning to look overstretched, proprietary analysis produced by Informa Financial Intelligence (IFI) shows that issuers are still firmly in the driving seat when it comes to pricing power.This provides an encouraging back drop for other companies planning to visit the market moving forward, although they may not want to sit on their hands too long.

    China Insight: Eyes on bond defaults and tightening liquidity

    23 Nov 2020

    While COVID remains well under control in mainland China, we have seen a surge in credit defaults there since the beginning of Q4. So far this quarter, we have seen four major bond defaults in China: 1. Huachen Auto Group, 2. Yongcheng Coal & Electricity Group, 3. Tsinghua Unigroup, 4. Fujian Fusheng Group. With credit quality in selected sectors worsening, interbank liquidity is going tighter regardless of less supply of government bonds in this quarter (chart 1) than the previous one. In interbank market, 1-month and 3-month repo are back at 3.00% and 3.20% respectively, the upper-end of their trading ranges since the middle of 2019 (chart 2). That means regardless of the counter-pandemic monetary easing across the globe since some 9 months ago, financing costs in mainland China, as represented by interbank repo rates, some how are back at their pre-pandemic levels.
