Tuesday's primary market highlights

** EUR primary issuance accelerated slightly on Tuesday where EUR5.15bn printed courtesy of 7 issuers compared to EUR3.3bn on Monday. For the full list of Tuesday's EUR deals and their pricing steps, see the IGM DAILY EUR NICS & BOOKS

** SSAs were the busiest with four issuers tapping the single currency for a combined EUR3.45bn, spearheaded by a EUR2bn 7yr from CPPIB Capital Inc, whilst KBN and IADB hit the Dollar market. In terms of the day's EUR deals, CPPIB found favour with investors where demand for its deal reached over EUR3.1bn, whilst Unedic's EUR250m Mar 2026 tap and Hessen's EUR500m 7yr LSA appeared to find the going tougher with books last communicated at just EUR480m+ and EUR450m+ respectively. No booksize was communicated on Chile's SEC-registered May 2030 tap

** Fonciere des Regions printed the only the only corporate benchmark of the day seeing the issuer extend its benchmark curve with a EUR500m 10yr line that landed at m/s +85 from a +95/100 area IPTs starting point. Demand was far from a blowout at just EUR850m (1.7x covered). This after Monday's deals from TenneT and Hemso Fastighets AB also received a tepid investor response with the trades only 1.3x covered, significantly less than last week's average cover of 2.815x, suggesting that investors are perhaps being a bit more selective. For relative value analysis on Tuesday's FDR deal and info on a Red El�ctrica tap, see the IGM CORP SNAPSHOT

** Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (SEB) was the sole visitor to the covered market Tuesday, with the borrower's EUR1bn 7yr line marking its first Swedish covered bond since Feb 2016. The deal was issued at m/s -5 while books finished up at around EUR1.2bn. See IGM's COVERED SNAPSHOT for more on this and details of a covered mandate for Deutsche Hypothekenbank

** FIG issuers stayed on the sidelined on Tuesday although Intesa Sanpaolo SpA held investor calls ahead of an inaugural EUR500m no grow 5yr Green deal which could launch as early as Wednesday. For relative value analysis and a recap of Monday's long date senior issue from AIG, see the IGM FIG SNAPSHOT

    China Insight: More Small Banks in Trouble as Re-leveraging Underway

    By Tim Cheung 19 Nov 2019

    The health of China's smaller banks has come under pressure as Yichuan Rural Commercial Bank and Yingkou Coastal bank are said to have suffered bank runs in recent weeks amid fears over poor management and liquidity issues. Earlier this year, a rare government takeover of Baoshang Bank and a state rescue of Jinzhou Bank and Hengfeng Bank raised concerns about the underlying health of hundreds of small banks in China. Admittedly, China has entered another round of re-leveraging, albeit a softer one this time. With the fundamental issue of macro leverage unsolved, we expect China's debt-to-GDP ratio, currently in the 290-300% area, to reach 320% by 2025 (chart 1).

    18 Nov 2019

    Inside this week’s edition of The Context, Financial Intelligence thought leaders discuss: Brl/Mxn Corrects Lower, But Still See Mxn Underperformance in Medium-term Due to Mexico's challenging GDP growth outlook, the reduction of the real rate and lingering risk of credit rating downgrades, we still see scope for Mxn underperformance in the medium-term. Whilst the Brl rally has paused, and for good reason, the arguments we presented for Brazilian economic outperformance remain. Euro Corp Comment: Issuance Slows But it Remains a Seller’s Market It was another active week for the European corporate bond market where another EUR7.455bn printed in the single currency courtesy of eleven issuers (13 tranches). Whilst being a decent total, it did however mark a considerable slowdown from the jumbo EUR11.25bn that hit the tape the week prior. What remained constant though was that there remained plenty of cash directed toward new corporate offerings… The CAD Week - Bias is Neutral to Bearish We get some major releases this week out of Canada, with manufacturing sales, CPI and retail sales being released on Tue, Wed and Fri respectively, but ultimately the most influential topic for the BoC is the ongoing trade war and its effect on domestic industry.
