  • Outlook for Capital Markets 2014 Cover

    IFR Outlook for Capital Markets 2014

    There are solid reasons to forecast a positive outlook for global capital markets in 2014. The all-time record new-issue activity seen in 2013 in areas such as US investment-grade corporate debt, US syndicated lending, global high-yield or Asian G3 debt may not necessarily be breached in the forthcoming 12 months, but it is likely to be matched as conditions in the US and across multiple market segments around the world remain highly propitious as the global economy gets into gear and funding levels re

  • IFR Latin Americas Report Cover 2014

    IFR Latin America Special Report 2014

    The good, the bad and the downright ugly: The People’s Republic of China may be more than 10,000 miles away from Latin America, but given the influence it has been having on the region, you could be forgiven for thinking it occupies the same barrio. There’s been no bigger influence on the region’s economy over the past few years than the PRC. With China’s growth slowing to about 7.5% from the runaway double-digit peak it reached in 2010–11, it’s not surprising that LatAm has suffered similarly.

    At cruising altitude; turbulence ahead?: This report reaches you at a time when Emerging Europe and Turkey could be stuck on the tarmac. The political situation means Ukraine is grounded and Russia may yet have to consider an emergency landing, yet the rest of the CEE region appears to be about to take off.

  • IFR SSA Special Report 2014

    IFR SSA Special Report 2014

    The euro crisis is over. At least, that’s what the market appears to believe. Yields across the eurozone’s embattled periphery have fallen to levels not seen in nearly a decade, while rating agencies are starting to take a more positive outlook towards peripheral countries, citing progress in fiscal and economic reform.

  • IFR Germany Report cover 2014

    IFR Germany Special Report 2014

    As a solo performer, Germany has few rivals and many fans, striking all the right notes and rising sublimely above Europe’s discord as the DAX posts all-time highs, data show a growing economy, and unemployment dips to the lowest rate since unification.

  • IFR Top 250 Borrowers Cover 2014

    IFR Top 250 Borrowers 2014

    The bigger the better – in everything. Freddie Mercury, the late lead singer of Queen, wasn’t alone in judging the world and its wares solely on the merit of size. Take bond investors. When the Federal Reserve announced its intention to begin tapering its quantitative easing programme last May, expectations were of an inexorable rise in US yields.

  • IFR IMF World Bank Report Cover 2014

    IFR IMF/World Bank Report 2014

    Playground rules - The collaborative effort of European governments and regulators is akin to children rushing around the school playground with a football. Enthusiasm and no lack of skill are undermined by issues of translation and the fierce desire of all to score the winning goal.

    Fashion can be a cruel mistress, especially if you’re the only person to turn up at the party with platform sneakers, a tracksuit with “Juicy” scrawled across the derriere, and a green feather boa. Banks are experiencing their own fashion faux pas right now and working hard to maintain their appeal.

  • IFR India Report 2014 Cover

    IFR India Special Report 2014

    The pivotal moment - India’s capital markets are approaching a pivotal moment. After Narendra Modi’s landslide election victory earlier this year, initial enthusiasm has begun to give way to lingering doubts that the new regime can deliver on its reform agenda.
