On Wednesday, Deutsche Bahn sold its first bond of 2019, setting the bar with a €1bn 10 year deal that has a new issue premium of less than the 20bp limit that triple-B rated names had failed to tighten past.

Deutsche Bahn, rated Aa1/AA-, announced its benchmark short 10 year deal with a December 2028 maturity and initial price thoughts of 45bp over mid-swaps via leads Banca IMICommerzbank, DZ Bank, HSBCMUFG and Société Générale. A banker not on the deal suggested fair value was around 22bp.
