Credit Monitor

FCF regularly engages in comprehensive research on the public European bond market based on publicly available data. The findings are published quarterly in the

FCF CREDIT MONITOR

The FCF Credit Monitor includes the following sectors:

Comprehensive Sector Coverage:
  • Consumer Discretionary
  • Consumer Staples
  • Energy
  • Healthcare
  • Information Technology
  • Materials
  • Telecommunications
  • Utilities
The report provides valuable sector and competitive intelligence and entails:
  • Yield curves across all rating classes by sector and maturity
  • Yield across all sectors by rating class and maturity
  • Historical 3-year yield development across all industries and rating classes by maturity
  • Detailled sector analysis including:
    • Yield curves by rating class and maturity
    • Historical 3-year yield developments across all maturities by rating classes
Key findings of the FCF Credit Monitor (Q4 2020):
  • The analysis of the average bond yields by sector across all rating classes shows the significant industry differences. While the utilities sector shows the lowest yields (1Y: ~ 1.00%, 10Y: ~ 2.00%), the energy sector shows the highest yields across all rating classes (1Y: 2.75%, 10Y: 3.70%)
  • The yield curve analysis by rating class across all sectors shows that investment grade rating classes (AAA-BBB) on average have negative yields for bond maturities of up to 2 years (BBB) and even 7 years (AAA). Across all sectors, Spreads between yield curves within the investment grade category are relatively small, while spreads between yield curves within the non-investment grade category (starting at BB) are wider. Bonds which are issued by a CCC-rated corporate show a high, inverse yield curve (1Y: 11.30%, 10Y: 10.26%)
  • Economical and political events have significant influences on the bond market. In the near past, the covid-19 pandemic caused average yields across all sectors and rating classes to jump dramatically above 7.00%. Since then, global government programs and the development of a vaccine let yields decrease below pre-covid-19 levels
