    Asset class status beckons for CoCos as €100bn issuance wave predicted

    Capital City | 06 March 2013

    Interesting note this morning from Satish Pulle, lead portfolio manager at ECM Asset Management, the London-based multi-asset credit investor owned by Wells Fargo; interesting because in the firm’s monthly commentary he looked at the financial credit landscape over the next decade.
