  • IFR US ECM Roundtable 2014 Cover

    IFR US ECM Roundtable 2014

    When we started thinking about the timing for a roundtable, we thought the first half of September would be a fantastic time to do it, because it would coincide with a market lull. We were totally wrong.

  • 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 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 Schuldscheine Roundtable Cover Image 2014

    IFR Schuldscheine Roundtable 2014

    IFR Review of the Year 2014

    In many ways 2014 was a bumper year for the investment banking industry. Although the year began with a few jitters as the US Federal Reserve changed guard and began to taper its purchases of government and asset-backed securities, asset prices across the markets quickly resumed their upward march of the past five years.

  • 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 Middle East Awards 2013 Cover

    IFR Middle East Awards 2013

    IFR’s inaugural Middle East Awards, which were presented at a gala dinner in Dubai at the end of March, were a great success. Senior investment bankers and their key clients assembled in the Ritz-Carlton DIFC to celebrate a significant year in the region’s capital markets and showcase some major achievements.

  • IFR Mexico Roundtable 2014

    IFR Mexico Roundtable 2014

    The Mexican economy is on the cusp of dramatic changes, if prognostications about the impact of the country’s sweeping reform process hold true. In July, IFR hosted a roundtable in Mexico City where bankers, public credit officials and treasurers at some of the country’s largest corporates discussed what these changes might mean for the country’s capital markets – and some of the challenges that lie ahead.

  • 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.
