We know that and you know that. Times have been tough in DCM, as they have been when your job is to write about the (almost non-existent of late) new issue market. So forgive us when we start to work the angles —or indeed any angle — for a story. This week we asked the question:

“If you had to guess at a CEEMEA bond volume number for [the second half of the year], what number would you give me?”

The response, cold hearted, but also hilariously appropriate from one contact, was:

“0345 604 3719…”
