On 22 October, KangaNews hosted the latest in the KangaNews Debt Capital Markets Summit 2020 webinar series. The session had a rates-market flavour, including a discussion between some of Australia’s leading market participants about how massively increased sovereign issuance, central-bank intervention and a raft of new dynamics will shape their sector.
On 13 April, BPCE (A+/A1/A+) launched a multi-tranche, Australian dollar denominated deal, comprising five-year, senior-preferred notes and seven-year non-call six-year, senior-nonpreferred notes.
