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

** Deutsche Hypo has hired Deutsche Bank, DZ Bank, HSBC, NordLB and UniCredit to lead manage a EUR500mn no grow 8yr Hypothekenpfandbrief transaction which is expected to be rated Aa1 (Moody's)

    China Insight: A return of focus to credit clean-up in 2021

    14 Dec 2020

    Concerns over China corporate credit risk have come to the forefront since the beginning of Q4, highlighted by three high-grade issuers' defaults: 1. AAA-rated Huachen Auto Group (onshore), 2. AAA-rated Yongcheng Coal & Electricity Group (onshore), 3. AAA-rated Tsinghua Unigroup (offshore) Coincidentally, all of these three issuers are state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in nature. This, to a certain extent reflects central government's bias in favour of a return to policy normalisation and possibly a second round of financial deleveraging (following the first round in 2017). Chart 1 shows that China's total debt to GDP ratio may have reached as high as 290% by the end of this year, so there is a need for deleveraging regardless of the defaults YTD being smaller than those in the previous two years both in terms of the total number and the total size of events (chart 2). From the perspective of the policymakers, with various kind of economic activities having returned to their pre-COVID levels, a return of the focus to credit clean-up should be more beneficial to long-term economic development...

    China Insight: Slower and bumpier RMB appreciation in year ahead

    07 Dec 2020

    There is good chance China will be the only major economy in the world to generate positive GDP growth (around 2%) in 2020 due largely to its effective pandemic containment measures and consequently the faster recovery of the production and consumption. As far as the FX is concerned, RMB has been appreciating against USD since the beginning of June on the back of broad-based weakness of greenback (chart 1). Besides, RMB has also been appreciating against all EM Asia currencies (except KRW) since USD's multi-month downtrend kicked off in early-summer. We attribute the RMB's outperformance relative to the rest of EM Asia to growing hopes of a victory of Biden in the 2020 presidential election, who's obviously far less hostile to China and promised to remove the existing tariffs on China in case he becomes the next US president...
