Loan Ranger: What election?

The world is grasping at the meaning of a Trump presidency. As snippets of policy dribble out of the Trump machine, financial markets roll and pitch in retort, while that placid pond of liquidity, the EMEA loan market, remains calm.

In honour of the tranquil grandfather of capital markets, we have gathered some of our favourite quotes about the loan market in the wake of the US elections:

“As always, the loan market sails through these macro events like nothing has happened.”

“Bond and equity markets react before the EMEA loan market lifts a finger.”

“Despite all the noise and the news coverage, nobody has a clue. Until we know more, all the speculation is a complete waste of paper.”

“It’s like nothing happened.”

“The guys in the US have said there is very little noticeable difference — we may actually see a stimulus to the economy, provided Trump does not pick any wars.”

“We were expecting Armageddon — we are now a little bit surprised.”

“We are pleased.”

In a turbulent and scary world, it's great to know that some things — death, taxes, loan market sangfroid — never change.
