Back to Normal?

In normal times, bond markets are typically quieter during the summer months, but this past summer has been like no other. Issuance is up and demand has been steady as investors get more comfortable with credit fundamentals.

Market Commentary

More Debt = Lower Interest Rates?

It's logical for any reasonable person to conclude that the more debt any person or entity has outstanding in relation to their “income”, the higher interest rates for said entity or person would be. More debt equates to more leverage, and, therefore, greater risk. These sorts of axioms hold no truth for the world's largest sovereign debtors, and that includes the United States.
