Corporate debt instruments are issued by companies and represent financial obligations of a corporation that have priority over its common stock and preferred stock in the case of bankruptcy. Corporate debt instruments can incorporate the following instrument types:
1) corporate bonds, 2) medium-term notes, and 3) commercial papers. Depending on the issuer of these securities, corporate bonds can be sub-divided into classifications which include utilities, transportations, industrials and bank/finance companies. According to BMA statistics, the outstanding level of corporate debt amounted to USD4.8 trillion in Q1 2005, with daily trading averaging USD23 billion amongst the primary dealers.
