** Euro IG supply was limited to just a EUR300m 10yr Green bond from Lietuvos Energija UAB on Friday whilst EUR650m priced in the HY market courtesy of CMA CGM SA. See IGM's DAILY EUR NICS & BOOKS for more info on these two trades

** Following a roadshow earlier this week, Lietuvos Energija UAB printed a rare Green bond from the CEE region, with its debut EUR300m 10yr issue landing at m/s +120, having been ramped in from a m/s +150 area IPTs starting point on the back of demand in excess of EUR1bn. See earlier IGM PREVIEW for more including relative value analysis

** Friday's duo of transactions capped off what was a much slower week for primary activity with IGM data showing that just EUR15.625bn printed in the single currency (IG & HY), compared to a much impressive EUR35.675bn last week. For the breakdown of the latest week's issuance see the IGM WEEKLY VOULME

** Friday's Lietuvos Energija UAB deal lifted corporate supply for the week up to just EUR2.75bn, falling well short of last week's EUR13.95bn total. Demand was extremely robust, however, which may offer encouragement to any issuers looking to tap the market before the looming earnings season and traditional summer lull. See IGM's CORP SNAPSHOT for a recap of this week's primary activity

** FIG volume fell this week against a backdrop of sharply rising rates and as the aforementioned summer slowdown approached. A strong reception for subordinated deals from CaixaBank and Bankia, and the outperformance of bank stocks, highlighted the positive mood toward financials in the higher rate/steeper curve environment and also easing systemic concerns with regard to southern European banks. See IGM FIG SHAPSHOT

** In contrast to the other sectors, there was an uptick in covered supply in the latest week where EUR2.05bn printed versus just EUR1bn the previous week, spearheaded by ABN AMRO Bank N.V. which tapped its outstanding 1.375% Jan 2037 Dutch Legislative Covered Bond for EUR1.25bn. For some takeaways from this week's covered deals and a more historical look at the sector, see IGM's COVERED SNAPSHOT

** Latest data from EPFR for Euro-denominated IG bond funds show investors put money in for a fifth straight week although the pace slowed to an equivalent $1,033.06m from $2,.022.2m the previous week. In contrast Euro denominated HY funds (Western Europe) saw outflows in the latest week, ending a nine-week winning run. For more see IGM EPFR FUND FLOWS
