  • With minimal changes, let’s look at some standout KPIs this week.
    • Another all-time high for total AUM of $7.52 Trillion with a positive 1-week change.
    • Issuer count stays floating around 286, +11 YTD. This is low compared to the 2022 12-month total of +29, but not far off the same pace.
