Europe's growing league of small corporate bond issuers: new players, different game dynamics
Olivier Darmouni and
Research Bulletin, 2022, vol. 96
While historically only very large firms issued in the European corporate bond market, recent years have seen the entry of many new players: small, private, and unrated issuers. Firm-level data show these new players face different game dynamics. They are disconnected from aggregate market movements and still depend heavily on banks. This means hey could potentially affect financial stability and be less responsive to policy interventions. JEL Classification: G21, G32, E44
