Covered Bond Research of the Year

2022 and 2023 have been a structural break in covered bond markets with the ECB stepping back, issuance volumes surging, spreads widening but also many investors returning. To be voted number one in such a crucial period for the market means the world to us. We can only thank all of our clients for your trust in our experience and views in these tricky conditions.
