SEC published a report that assesses trends in primary securities issuance and secondary market liquidity, with focus on how these trends relate to the post-crisis regulatory reforms. The Congress had requested this report as part of the FY2016 appropriations process.
The report examines the issuance of debt, equity, and asset-backed securities, along with activity and liquidity in the U.S. treasuries, corporate bonds, single-name credit default swaps, and bond funds. It identifies trends for unregistered offerings, such as those under Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding, and for fixed-income transactions, fixed-income quotations, and broker-dealer financial positions. The report surveys and analyzes recent academic literature, along with the original analyses drawn from publicly available databases and non-public regulatory filings.
