** Primary supply accelerated on Tuesday where EUR8.57bn printed in the single currency via 13 separate tranches, up from EUR4.6bn on Monday. For the full breakdown of Tuesday's supply and the pricing steps of each deal see the IGM DAILY EUR NICS & BOOKS

** Corporate borrowers British Telecommunications plc and Coentreprise de Transport d'Electricit� (CTE) led the way with both issuing three-tranche deals which totalled EUR2.3bn and EUR2.92bn respectively. Demand for the six tranches was strong with combined books topping EUR17.1bn which allowed the spreads to be tightened by 17.33bp on average (from IPTs to reoffer). For more including relative value analysis on these and a recap of Monday's issues see IGM's CORP SNAPSHOT

** The covered sector was the busiest in terms of number of issuers with Aegon Bank, UniCredit Bank, The Mortgage Society of Finland and HYPO NOE Gruppe Bank AG all battling it out for attention in Euros. The quartet brought a combined EUR1.45bn adding to the EUR2bn which had priced in the asset class on Monday. That means last week's EUR2bn haul has already been topped in just 2-days. For more on Tuesday's covered transactions, see the IGM COVERED SNAPSHOT

** In FIG, BNP Paribas headlined supply with a debut EUR750m 7yr fixed rate German regionally targeted senior non-preferred transaction. The deal was met with a warm investor response with books of over EUR2bn (180+ accounts) allowing the borrower to pull pricing into a final m/s +70 from a +80 area IPTs starting point. Elsewhere Arion Bank HF refreshed its senior curve with a EUR300m 3yr line at m/s +88. See IGM FIG SNAPSHOT

    China Insight: Bond yields see upside risk as deleveraging in play

    By Tim Cheung 14 Sep 2020

    Interbank liquidity tightening during August coincided significantly with the policymakers' introduction of a set of new regulatory measures targeted for property developers. PBOC and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD) in mid-Aug had a meeting with major property developers in Beijing on the new rules set to monitor property developers' funding and financing outlook. The new rules include: (1) debt-to-asset ratio must not exceed 70% after contract liabilities; (2) net gearing must not exceed 100%; and (3) Cash-to-short-term debt ratio has to be not less than 1. Developers who fail to meet these requirements are required to submit an action plan by the end of Sep on how to reduce their debt levels within a year and meet all the above three requirements within 3 years. A significant fall in structured deposits and ordinary deposits since the beginning of the year (chart 1) suggests a lot of money has been poured into the real estate market again. That's reflected in the rapid rise in real estate FAI year-to-date (chart 2). Against this backdrop, policymakers have found it necessary to curb the pace of property developers' re-leveraging before it's too late.

    APAC US$ SUPPLY STATS: Issuance declines in August but by less than usual

    10 Sep 2020

    The month of August is a typically subdued affair in the APAC US$ primary bond market, with only the month of December producing less issuance volume in the past couple of years. However, while supply did indeed decline sharply from what was a busy month in July, the US$28.577bn of total issuance (including Japan) that did materialize in August 2020 did at least mark a decent jump from those previous year's volumes. That in a month which continued to offer regional issuers across the rating spectrum attractive funding opportunities, supported by a keenness of yield-hungry investors to add inventory in the low rate environment, consistent with a broader appetite for risk.
