About Credit Market Daily

If your company is interested in advertising on, please contact us using this form.

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. was created due to a recognition of the need to provide insightful corporate bond market commentary and views, with content available and easily accessible not purely through the banking sector. Our contributors are experts in their respective fields, enjoy vast experience of the markets and have a real passion for the sector.

Dr Suki Mann is a veteran of the markets with over two decades under his belt.  Ranked the number one European Credit Strategist in eight out of ten years in the Euromoney Analyst Survey, he shares his thoughts on the corporate bond market on a daily basis on this site.
