The European leveraged loan market saw its seventh straight monthly advance in October, returning 0.37% in October, according to LCD’s European Leveraged Loan Index. That brings the YTD return to 3.87%, the lowest figure at this point in the year since 2014.
The bulk of October’s return came from interest income as the market-value return was slightly positive, up 0.04%, after two months in the red. – Staff reports
