Credit Markets Forging Ahead

Monday, May 6, 2024
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM PDT

Despite higher financing costs, less than accommodative monetary policies, and an unpredictable economic outlook, the credit market has held steadfast in 2023 in the face of unfavorable market headwinds. Bond issuance is on pace to increase throughout 2024; tightening spreads and a flattening yield curve, all indicate more favorable conditions ahead. Can credit investors finally catch their breath since the successive rate hikes? In anticipation of potential rate cuts, what is in store for the credit market? As a result, how might this impact other asset classes across ECM, M&A, and structured finance?
