After record 2018, issuance of US CLOs off to quiet start to year

US CLO issuance

After record issuance in 2018, the market for U.S. collateralized loan obligation vehicles is off to a cautious start, after the broader financial market gyrations of December and January. Through Feb. 8 there has been $6.36 billion of CLO vehicles priced, compared to $11.32 billion during the same period one year, according to LCD.

CLOs are special-purpose vehicles set up to hold and manage pools of leveraged loans. They are a critical component of the U.S. leveraged loan investor base, accounting for some 60% of all loans broadly syndicated to institutions.
