Snapshot - Valuations of APAC USD bonds issued in 2Q2017

** Highlights of the Report**

  • Valuations for the notable APAC USD bond issuances in the second quarter of 2017 paint a contrasting picture between new investment-grade and high yield issues, particularly for the Corporate issuers.
  • New IG issues generally performed better than HY issues by the end of the quarter in which issuance volume fell 18.53% from 1Q2017 to USD99.535bn.
  • Total APAC USD issuance volume in 1H2017 has crossed the USD200bn mark to USD221.715bn.
  • Chinese issuers contributed the most with 44.16% of 1H2017's issuance and looks set to cross the USD100bn mark in 3Q2017.
  • General outperformance of APAC's IG issuance in 20Q2017 could help buoy positive sentiment of new issuances into 3Q2017. HY issuances on the otherhand, largely seemed to fall out of favour post issuance in the second quarter.

    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.
