Just a week after the IPO of its Asia-Pacific subsidiary was scrapped, Brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev announced the sale of its Australian subsidiary Carlton & United Breweries (CUB) to Japanese entity Asahi Group Holdings for $11.3bn (AUD 16bn).
Fitch Ratings’ analysis of Europe’s five largest UCITS high-yield bond funds, with combined assets of €43bn at the end of March 2019, revealed that all these funds offer daily liquidity but their holdings of highly liquid securities were limited, indicating significant liquidity risk. On average, only 4% of their investments were in cash and only 14% in instruments rated ‘A’ or above, with ‘AAA’ instruments having the lowest allocation.
