“Do Bond Spreads Show Evidence of a Too Big to Fail Effect?” is the second working paper in a series of independent research conducted and released by Oliver Wyman.

These findings strongly suggest that recent regulatory reforms have dramatically changed market perceptions of risk and funding costs today.
