Overall Fixed-Income Deal-Making Volume, Count Down From Last Year



Fixed-income deal-making volume fell in the first half of the year compared to the same period in 2015, Bloomberg data show.

Overall deal volume decreased 1.65 percent to roughly $2.2 trillion. Similarly, the overall deal count was down more than 5 percent to nearly 8,000.

JP Morgan underwrote 710 deals worth more than $130 billion in the first half of the year. That constituted 6 percent of overall market share. Most of the largest underwriters, however, saw a drop in their first-half market-share totals compared to the same period last year. Morgan Stanley's market share in corporate bond underwriting, for example, was nearly halved compared to the first six months of 2015.
