leveraged loan forward calendar

Cash-rich institutional investors looking to partake in the U.S. leveraged loan market likely will have no easier time booking higher-yielding assets during the remainder of 2013 than they have for the past few months.

The forward calendar of U.S. institutional loans – credits that have been announced but not yet brought to the syndications market – this week hit $25.63 billion, its lowest point since December 2012, according to S&P Capital IQ/LCD. Of that amount, roughly $16 billion backs M&A while the remainder largely backs refinancings.

Of course, U.S. leveraged loan investors have been sitting on piles of cash recently, seeing an astounding 74 straight weeks of net cash inflows, according to Lipper. For 2013 there has been $56 billion of net inflows into U.S. loan funds, says Lipper.
