The article analyzes trends in medium-term notes (MTN) dealing. A changing risk climate is pushing MTN dealers that traditionally have kept their business confined to the domestic realm to become far more cosmopolitan. Recent deals suggest that formerly conservative U.S. structured note buyers are starting to broaden their portfolios. In particular, these buyers appear to be more receptive to foreign borrowers, in part due to the growing perception that government-sponsored enterprise credits like Freddie Mac, due to recent accounting and political issues, are no longer risk-free holdings.
