Ample liquidity and investors’ ongoing search for yield in 2017 saw debt capital markets take macroeconomic uncertainty and periods of heightened geopolitical risk in their stride.

Heading into 2018 there is considerable momentum. Borrowers with well thought-out strategies and funding plans can take advantage of the opportunities available in several core funding markets.

This year 10 case studies describe how exceptional outcomes were achieved in some of the world’s largest and deepest bond markets, as well as in the domestic bank and capital markets.

Cost-effective and diversified funding is crucial so every year CommBank publishes its Debt Market Update to help businesses navigate the global debt capital markets.

Now in its 15th year of publication, the Debt Market Update reviews the forces that shaped debt capital markets in the past year and outlines our expectations for the year ahead.

It draws on our Debt Market team’s expertise and market-leading capabilities to explain the latest trends and developments in key funding markets.

Each year we identify central themes and offer our insights to help deliver the best financing results for your business.
