16/6/2013: Euromoney Country Risk Scores Update

Some updates from Euromoney Country Risk (ECR) reports. First a summary of latest credit risk assessment scores moves:

And on foot of Russia's score move, a related story on Russian government delaying issuance of much expected sovereign bond. Via Euroweek:

"Russia is likely to wait until autumn before bringing its mandated sovereign bond, said analysts. Forcing through a $7bn bond in one deal might also be unwise, but demand is deep and the sovereign could spread its funding plan out across separate transactions, said bankers... Investors have already priced in a large sovereign issue and Russia would not struggle to drum up demand, he added. But the problem is price."Everything is 100bp wider than a month ago and so the sovereign will hope things calm down and allow them to issue closer to the historic tights they were looking at just a few weeks ago," said another syndicate banker."
