Sub debt update by Jérémie Boudinet

28 April 2021

This content is for professional investors only as defined by the MiFID.

Subordinated debt markets were a bit soft this week due to lower activity on the secondary market and slightly lower liquidity, according to our counterparties. In addition, investors were more focused on the High Yield market, which had a huge number of primary issues.

Sub debt update by Jérémie Boudinet

On the perpetual debt side, no primary issuances are noted this week, which is not too surprising given that companies are starting to release their Q1 2021 results. Therefore, we note a sluggish performance over the week, in particular on the €AT1s segment which posted a performance of -0.01%. Corporate Hybrids were -0.12% and Insurance subordinated debt was -0.11% during the week.  We find this situation healthy after the strong appreciation over the last two months.
