Aggregate Credit Market and Credit Fundamental Review


IG and XO markets are currently fairly valued. HY markets have seen CDS move wider than iCDS again recently. Overall, costs of borrowing have reversed their trend higher through 2018 so far in 2019, as both the risk free rate and corporate spreads (CDS levels) have mostly tightened. Lower cost for borrowing is favorable for refinancing and borrowing for new credit creation.
