IGM Global Credit Snapshot - August 2022

By Gavin Kendrick 06 Sep 2022

IGM-august-2022-global

EUR supply recovered strongly in August as issuers and investors got back down to business following the seasonal lull. FIG activity accelerated the most sharply (both on an absolute and percentage basis). Rising supply came against a backdrop of surging underlying yields with a continuation of aggressive policy action by central banks to reign in rampant inflation. The APAC primary bond market remained in the doldrums with volumes maintaining monthly declines that began in April. Just USD8.989bn of regional supply got over the line during the month (the lowest volume month since December 2021). In stark contrast to European EUR issuance (which was heavily skewed to the latter half of the month) US IG ex-SSA issuance was crammed into the earlier part of August. In total 73 companies tapped the market, raising USD114.7bn (with only USD1.975bn raised in the last eight trading sessions).

The present, in mid-August, continued to offer little obvious comfort to investors. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine ground on towards the 200-day mark, drought weighed on transport, agriculture and energy in countries ranging from France to China, the seven-day average for global Covid-19 cases remained above 900,000 and inflation remains elevated in the US, Europe and many emerging markets.
