The latest survey from the International Association of Credit Portfolio Managers shows that bank loan portfolio managers are now at their most positive since December 2010.
More than half of respondents expect US investment grade spreads to tighten in the next three months, and 57% expect US high yield spreads to tighten. This represents a sharp improvement in sentiment from September, when IAPCM members expected spreads to widen across credit. This optimism also extends across Europe, with 49% of respondents expecting iTraxx Europe to tighten as well.
