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

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.
