Our Bond Comments section — a longstanding tradition at EuroWeek and now GlobalCapital — is where you can find all that's being said about the deals that matter. Deal terms appear alongside extensive comments from borrowers, bookrunners and the market, far more than we can include in a regular article. See the links below for the last word on SSA issuance.
