The article focuses on trends in the U.S. corporate loans markets. With investors and bankers increasingly optimistic about the state of the economy, the market climate could turn favorable for the loan market. Market players are still keeping their fingers crossed that continued increases in merger and acquisition activity will drive the issuance of fresh paper in 2005. Increasing interest in the leveraged loan market among nontraditional institutional loan investors, such as hedge funds is also expected to give boost to the market.
