II. DEBT CAPITAL MARKET DEVELOPMENTS

DEBT
CAPITAL MARKET DEVELOPMENTS
Financing yourself in a (post) Crisis landscape?
•
Surety of funding is lacking
•
Renewed focus on credit risk due to economic downturn and increased sovereign risk
•
Liquidity premiums are increasing
•
Higher pricing and tighter borrowing covenants
6
DEBT
CAPITAL MARKET DEVELOPMENTS
Implications of the Basel III banking framework
•
Shift of focus: from asset side to liability side
•
Quality and size of banks’ core capital must increase, which results in higher capital
reserves
•
Banks must disclose leverage ratios as of 2013
•
Also capital requirements for derivatives might increase, which leads to more expensive
products
