From the Collaborative Bond and Money Market Data Portal
Definition: SSA is an acronym that sometimes refers to Sovereigns, Supranational and Agencies (SSA) and sometimes to Supra, sub-sovereign and agencies (SSA).
In the latter use, Sovereigns are seemingly not included. At CMDPortal they are. This sector also includes government owned or guaranteed corporates, central banks, development banks, regions, provinces and local authorities. The SSA acronym is typically used by investment banks in the context of defining the remit of an operation or desk focused on servicing a specific market. The term is used in contrast with FIG and Corporate markets. The term Frequent Issuers is sometimes also used for SSA, but this can also include other borrowers that regurarly access DCM. It should be noted that not all Development Banks are SSAs as some exist in FIGs. The industry sector is determined by how a borrower derives the majority of its revenue.
Based on available data, on the 28th February 2018, the size of the Vanilla SSA Market Bond and MTN market is EUR 17.8 trillion
