The Loan Market Association recently published a book titled “The LMA: 25 Years in the Loan Market”, honoring its 25th anniversary analyzing the development of the syndicated loan market since the LMA’s inception.

They reflect the historical development and drivers of the European high yield bond market, as well as current trends and future prospects. Specific areas covered include:

  • The growth of the European high yield market

  • The evolution of the ‘super senior’ and ‘pari-passu’ structures

  • The variation of terms with respect to LMA high yield documents over time

  • Market developments such as the recent acceptance of “permanent” creditor agreements.
