    Over ten issuers today; Final March week  

    IG new issuance priced $21bn in the past week as the new issuance market reengaged after the 7-day shutout.  Volumes were led by UnitedHealth’s $6.5bn 4-part.


    Week over week, IG corporate spreads narrowed 7bps to 155bps while high yield spreads widened 5bps to 522bps, according to the BofA ICE Masters Indexes.


    Today sees more than ten issuers tapping the market as conditions have continued to improve. Surveys expect around $15-$20bn for the week. March volume currently stands at $76.3bn – well below the $130-$150bn that had been expected.
