Leveraged Loans: Technicals Still Good

April 2005

The article reports on certain features of leveraged loans. Syndicated loan volume in the U.S. surged 23% in the first quarter to $253.8 billion-a level that puts it on pace for another $1 trillion-plus year. As in 2004, when the first quarter was considerably lower than the three that followed, market players expect quarterly volume in 2005 to increase as the year progresses. Without big M&A deals, loan volume likely wouldn't approach last year's levels. There seem to be fewer leveraged loans in the pipeline at the moment, but some are quite large.
