First publicly available, CLO manager provided index for European CLO debt

Palmer Square Capital Management, a credit-focused asset management firm with over $30 billion in assets, has announced the launch of an index designed to benchmark the European collateralized loan obligation market.

The Palmer Square CLO EUR Debt Index is a rules-based observable pricing and total return index for European CLO debt. It is the first broadly available CLO manager provided index for European CLO debt. The data is broken out by tranche and includes total return information and statistics such as spread, yield and price. The index will be available to all Palmer Square clients for free and to non-clients as a free 12-month trial.

Christopher Long, Chairman and CEO of Palmer Square, said, “Investors around the world are increasingly seeking to gain access to the dynamic and growing European CLO market. With the launch of our European index, we are pleased to provide these investors with a convenient, manager affiliated, daily benchmark that previously was not broadly available to help them make informed investment decisions as they navigate markets.”

Palmer Square has extensive credit investing experience across market cycles and is one of the most active issuers of CLOs. In 2023, the firm was leading issuer for European CLOs by volume and deal count. The firm is also an active third-party CLO investor, managing over $5B across the capital structure in both the US and Europe. Palmer Square developed the proprietary methodology for calculating the index by leveraging the experience of their skilled investment team.

Market participants who are not current Palmer Square clients and are interested in accessing the data should reach out to Palmer Square to set up a trial.
