EU Debt Issuance To Fill Gap In Shortage Of European High Quality Bonds

Intermoney | EU supranational entities’ negotiable debt in euros which can be attractive for investors amounts to nearly 588 billion euros. This figure seems low in line with the gross emissions of the EU, the ESM, EFSF and EIB which, together, have averaged 67 billion euros between 2015 and 2019. These numbers are evidence of the fact that the markets in the EU are lacking a key element such as the supranational role of quality. Furthermore, the Recovery Plan largely dilutes the break-up premium of the European project, and this may generate an extra boost for EU equities in the coming months.
