CLOs in the Heartland

The outlook for CLO issuance in 2015 remains compelling after a record issuance in 2014 of $122 billion. There are expectations that we could see issuance totals between $65 and $90 billion. Along with leveraged loans, US CLOs—both broadly syndicated and middle market—have performed steadily throughout the year, even as the sector continues to face regulatory uncertainties and challenges.
