The Royal Bank of Scotland today introduced its new Structured Credit Matters publication wherein analysts said the focus is to provide regular comment on structured credit markets including correlation and options, indices, CDO's and other structured credit products. "Our audience varies both in experience and in their interest in detail, rather than concept or overall trend," said the analysts at RBS. "We are keen to appeal to this broad base; with the bid for credit from structured credit activity felt in all corners of the credit world we perceive the ability to understand structured trends and interpret their influence on bond and CDS markets to be increasingly important."
Additionally, JPMorgan Securities introduced an expanded version of its CDO Funding Gap series that now includes a new European CLO index. The new European CLO Funding Gap aims to measure arbitrage conditions and will be provided in JP Morgan's Global CDO Weekly Market Snapshot research publication.
