12/02/2020 - Corporate bond markets have become a major source of financing for non-financial companies. A new OECD report, Corporate Bond Market Trends, Emerging Risks and Monetary Policy, analyses recent developments and emerging risks in corporate bond issuance. Covering both advanced economies and emerging markets, the report provides new data showing that, in comparison to previous credit cycles, today's stock of outstanding corporate bonds has lower overall credit quality, higher payback requirements, longer maturities and inferior investor protection.
The report will be released at 11.00 Paris time/10.00 GMT on Tuesday 18 February 2020.
Requests to receive the report under embargo by e-mail ahead of release time should be sent to email@example.com. Journalists requesting an electronic version in advance of the release time agree to respect OECD embargo conditions. The report will be sent under embargo on Monday 17 February.
For more information, journalists should contact Spencer Wilson of the OECD’s Media Office (tel. + 33 1 45 24 81 18).
Working with over 100 countries, the OECD is a global policy forum that promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
