EDHEC-Risk Institute has conducted extensive research into advanced debt management practices, including a study on the possibility of increasing firm value through the issuance of an optimal level of inflation-linked bonds, which would allow for a reduction in the variability of cash flows, net of debt costs. Supplementing the research documented in the EDHEC-Risk publication “Optimal Design of Corporate Market Debt Programmes in the Presence of Interest-Rate and Inflation Risks”, a call for reaction was issued seeking assessment of the study’s key conclusions. A bifurcated survey, with two separate sets of questionnaires, was issued to institutional investors and members of corporate finance departments – the two parties most qualified to provide professional insight. The results indicate that the topic is perceived as highly relevant to current investor concerns and issuers of corporate debt; moreover, they suggest that the issuance of inflationlinked bonds may provide a solution to both parties’ exposure to inflation risk.
