“He had a vision of how it would develop and being a pretty young guy at that time, I was impassioned by his outlook that capital would once again flow freely across borders and would be a bridge into a more united and better world. A few changes were made, notably the introduction of circuit breakers that could halt trading, but apart from that, many people just shrugged and went back to making money. As London correspondent for the Paris-based Agefi (short for Agence Economique et Financiere) and its Swiss, Belgian and Luxembourg offshoots, Hemain understood the game early on.

The deal’s development lay in the standardised and comprehensive documentation that meant that a sale agreed between parties evidenced commitments under the credit agreement and entitled the holder to receive the interest and benefits of the loan. In 1968, Rudloff moved to New York and jumped ship to Kidder Peabody, one of Wall Street’s largest investment banks, where he stayed for 11 years.

Markets would yet again forget the lessons of the past in the dotcom bubble and subsequent crash in 2000. “European investors wanted more exposure to these American firms, so we syndicated a bit of a loan synthetically. How much further will it drop — and for how long? Back in 1986, the prevailing trading convention was still on a cash price basis, even though some had begun using Treasuries to hedge positions. Yet one of the oddest parts of such a significant crash, he recalls, was how little effect it seemed to have. The main culprits, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina, borrowed money for development and infrastructure programmes. The bank in question was extending a multi-billion dollar lending facility to one of its most important blue-chip customers and was going to struggle to warehouse the entire loan.

London was the perfect environment in which to operate an international business. This kind of leadership is missing in Europe.”, , IFR’s 2000th special issue would be incomplete without recognising the achievements of Hans-Joerg Rudloff, the man at the centre of many of the key developments in the Euromarkets since the formation of IFR. “It took the market to a completely different level: it traded on a tight bid/offer spread 24/7,” said Egan. “The US$250m upsize would in itself have constituted a decent-sized issue on its own in those days,” said Stheeman.

Goldman Sachs, Salomon Brothers, Morgan Stanley and Shearson Lehman Brothers as US underwriters were on the hook for 22% of the deal.

More than 15 years after the Latin American debt crisis of 1982, history would indeed repeat itself in Asia. In the years leading up to the real estate and stock market crash of 1989–90 and before the “lost decade” of economic stagnation and decline, the Japanese had the look of unstoppable world-beaters. It then rolled out the same model in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Canada and Austria, while also tapping the central banks of OPEC countries such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Kuwait. I think the combination of the Basel III approach and leverage ratio is actually a good thing, but I also think the lesson we learned is, let’s use our common sense and not blindly accept models.”. With a rebellion in the poor southern state of Chiapas adding to Mexico’s risk premium, the peso’s value fell by nearly 50% in one week. But I asked myself: ‘Do I want to be a part of a club or do I want to form the club?’ I went for the latter and was one of the founders of a group originally called G7. It would appear to be something of a result of the way markets function. When the world’s economy went into recession in the late 1970s the problem compounded itself. Soon after the crisis, there were talks of mandatory ring-fencing. For the past year, Marketplace has been reporting on how the 2008 financial crisis changed the country. The big offshore-dollar game has hardly changed since then, with borrowers and investors alike ever happy for fresh opportunities to diversify, with fee-reaping banks in the middle.

It also hit markets across the developed world. Terms: bearer bond, pari passu, ‘lois Anglais’…” And so we continued in those early days in March 1974 working through the night until sun-up – with me converting the dialogue into a spare and compact English prose, a style that was the essence of my own business newsletter, the Transterra Brief, and that emulated that of my German backers and partners in Detmold, the Schmitt-Brief. In the event, I am neither, and therefore have been hanging around the street corners of EC1 from the rise of the Eurobond market to the disintegration of the structured credit market and beyond. In 1994 a sudden devaluation of the Mexican peso triggered what would become known as the Tequila crisis, which would become a massive interest rate crisis and result in a bond rout. 1984: Texaco’s US$1bn CB – pioneering convertible bond Once again breaking with its often terse style, IFR piped this deal into the markets with unabashed enthusiasm, with the headline: “The Global Texaco Convertible: It drills a US$1bn gusher.” The deal, which some have called the first “real” CB and which was certainly much bigger than any other similar deal, saw remarkably wide distribution and was increased from US$800m, thanks to overwhelming demand. In short, the Japanese had arrived. One of the biggest changes in the financial landscape is sharply curtailed international activity. As he puts it, there is a common theme of countries and markets wanting to believe that they are different and that they are not as connected to the rest of the world’s economy. “We were in a very favourable position because governments wanted to expand the investment opportunities for their citizens, and there was no better place than the World Bank,” said Rotberg. While the solution to the Latin American crisis was being put together, a domestic one was happening right in front of the US regulators.

The market has ebbed and flowed since then but it has never fallen into irrelevance. However, the prepayment conundrum persisted throughout the initial years of the nascent MBS market, spawning MBS research and trading desks that sought to understand the complex mathematics behind predicting mortgage prepayments and taking bets on which maturities/credits to buy.

It became the Eurobond benchmark and a Treasury equivalent, indeed a Treasury proxy to a large degree,” said Young. Immortalised in the best-selling 1989 book “Liar’s Poker” by Michael Lewis, the story of MBS typically focuses on the brash Ranieri, a Brooklyn-born, hard-nosed utility-bond trader plucked from obscurity at Salomon to lead the brand new mortgage department because of his street smarts, drive, and aggression. With that initial 1977 private “pass-through” MBS deal, however – as simple as it was – Dall and Joseph for the first time persuaded insurance companies and pension funds to share some of the risk of American borrowers. He laments, however, that the lessons of the crisis weren’t heeded. Shortly afterwards, Blythe Masters and Bill Demchak, two rising stars based in the firm’s New York offices, began sketching out these ideas into a firmer structure, which eventually became the Bistro (see related story). However, this was not the case with the Nines, which maintained its exalted position throughout its life. Someone who remembers the savings and loan crisis all too well is William Black.

The collapse of American investment bank Lehman Brothers sparked an economic downturn which was felt throughout the entire world, particularly across Europe. He was instrumental in the investigation into one of the most notorious S&L villains, Charles Keating, who infamously sent a memo saying he wanted Black dead.

Their economies were booming, and banks were happy to provide loans to the point where Latin American debt quadrupled in seven years. The next year Bankers Trust began originating baskets of credits and also introduced financial underlyings, which were more liquid and therefore easier to hedge. “Time and again, be it in the Asian crisis or the eurozone crisis, we have seen how governments have failed to draw lessons from the Latin American crisis,” he said. 1984: Irish Telecommunications £25m 10-year loan – foundation stone of loan trading “We’re convinced it works!” bankers at Samuel Montague told IFR about their latest innovation – the transferable loan instrument.

Financial crisis of 2007–08, severe contraction of liquidity in global financial markets that originated in the United States as a result of the collapse of the U.S. housing market. “One of the things that is clear in all of the crises is that strong leadership is crucial,” he says. Liar’s Poker focuses on the ascension of Ranieri’s powerhouse mortgage-finance business, whose profits accounted for more than half of Salomon’s overall profits by 1981. “The British privatisations really set the stage for the globalisation of the equity markets,” said Eric Dobkin, founder of the ECM group at Goldman Sachs and acknowledged as the father of modern ECM.

Dall and his peers begged Ginnie Mae to offer some type of protection to bond investors, but the GSE did not want to. Old as the hills The process of abstracting credit risk from the underlying loan is as old as the Code of Hammurabi (a Babylonian law code, dating back to about 1772 BCE) and can be found in any old textbook on banking and finance under the title of “Loan Guarantee”. There is some disagreement as to what caused it, but most point to the collapse of the US$6.75bn buyout of UAL as the main trigger. Next up was the 1989 junk bond collapse, which resulted in a significant recession in the US. That had ne, Donald Last, the man who typed the first issues of what became IFR, remembers the foundation of what was then the Agefi Bondletter – and the man who started it all.
