Recent stories

  • Italian result dents sentiment

    IFR 1973 2 March to 8 March 2013

    European leveraged loans were broadly flat to slightly lower last week as the indecisive Italian elections dented sentiment in the wider markets, while loan investors are finding it difficult to find assets to buy. Europe’s top 40 leveraged loans were quoted 7bp lower on Thursday at 98.53% of face value from 98.6% a week earlier.  

  • Cairn Capital

    Relative value

    IFR 1972 23 February to 1 March 2013

    Relative value on European leveraged loans is becoming increasingly attractive after a slump in US yields since the start of the year. The first European CLO for Cairn Capital shows US investors allocating more money to European fund managers and large recent transatlantic leveraged loans show higher yields available on non-dollar paper.
