European High Yield, Leveraged Loans & CLO Briefing

Navigating the New Normal

Navigating the New Normal

Markets are facing a new reality – “A New Normal”. We’re now in an environment characterised by slower economic growth, higher interest rates, lower valuations and a plethora of geopolitical risks capable of destabilising markets. 

This new landscape prompts us to ponder:

  • How will these conditions alter the behaviours and financial strategies of key market players, including issuers, sponsors, the banking community, and the CLO market?
  • What will this mean for issuance levels, deal structures, and the deployment of exceptionally high levels of dry powder?
  • What are the implications for covenants and credit quality, defaults, and recovery prospects?
  • How will private credit evolve - can it coexist with the broader syndicated market, and if so, how will this play out?
