For the composition of Tuesday's EUR supply see DAILY NICS & BOOKS

** The IG corporate sector continued to tick over thanks to retail favourite Nestle Holdings while Bright Food Singapore Pte provided some Asian flavour. The former extended its curve with a EUR850m Jul 2025 line at m/s +15bps (books EUR1.4bn+), giving a NIC of ca. 6bps, while Bright Foods secured shorter 3yr funding to the tune of EUR800m at m/s +117.5bps on very healthy demand of EUR2.7bn+. See CORP SNAPSHOT for more details

For more colour including RV analysis see SSA PREVIEW

** FIG issuers stayed on the side-lines while secondary spreads mostly edged wider. That followed a strong run in the prior week that had seen spreads grind tighter despite widening witnessed in synthetic markets. See FIG SNAPSHOT

Demand topped EUR900m with the deal offering a NIC of ~2bps at reoffer. Away from the single currency, Bank of Montreal launched a sterling 3yr FRN where demand of GBP1.1m facilitated a GBP800m deal. See COVERED SNAPSHOT


Wednesday's supply prospects

** European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is expected to price a $500m 3yr Global FRN via BofA Merrill Lynch, HSBC and RBC Capital Markets. Taking IoIs at 3mL+1bp area



Tuesday's broader market developments

** Brent sees intraday weakness, amid concerns OPEC measures to cut supply may be insufficient

** Govvies - BTPs lead decline in periphery, EGBs back under pressure across the board with 10yr Bunds the weakest link among core nations in the run up to Wednesday's EUR5bn 2027 Bund auction
