The European corporate bond market has grown exponentially since the global financial crisis of 2008. From around Eur700bn in 2007, it has developed into a Eur2trn market today. A low interest rate world has enabled much of this growth. This market therefore deserves and demands greater attention. We believe that the corporate bond market ought to appeal to a wider audience than it currently does, and to observers who might not have previously appreciated the opportunities it presents.
