The overall total value of capital markets issuance from U.S. banks plummeted in June despite month-over-month increases from subordinated debt offerings along with preferred and common equity.

Capital raised by U.S. banks in June fell to $6.08 billion, a 53.2% decline month over month and 27.9% decline year over year, according to a new data analysis from S&P Global Market Intelligence. The drop was driven by a reduction in the value of senior debt issuance, which fell 79.1% month over month and 53.8% year over year to $2.62 billion, and was the lowest total in a calendar month since November 2021.
