Sterling bonanza for corporates and SSAs
◆ Super sterling welcomes corporate first timers ◆ SSAs switch tactics in UK market ◆ Bill on bonds
Amid all the records being smashed across primary bond markets this week, one could be forgiven for missing what has been happening in the sterling bond market. But fear not; we were all over it.
From remarkable debut deals from corporate issuers to a change in how public sector borrowers approach sterling bond issuance in what is a very busy time for the market, we discuss in-depth what has been going on, what is driving it and what it means.
Then a change of tack this week as we stop to recognise one of our own. Forgive the self-indulgence but we think it is worth it. Bill Thornhill, our covered bond editor is retiring and we wanted to mark the event by talking to him about where he saw the covered bond market heading next and about his 40 year career from trading cotton to chronicling Pfandbriefe.
