The STEP statistics concern short-term debt securities issued in the context of programmes that have received the STEP label from the STEP Market Committee ( http://www.stepmarket.org ). The STEP dataset comprises daily statistics on aggregated outstanding amounts and new issues and on yields and spreads for securities issued in euro under STEP programmes. The daily yield statistics encompass annualised yields for STEP-labelled zero coupon issues, referring to the primary market interest rates originally agreed between an issuer and an investor. Yield statistics are also available for STEP issues priced with a spread against reference interest rates. The underlying security by security data are collected with daily frequency at ISIN and settlement level from the eligible data providers.
National Settlement Systems, International Settlement Systems, National Central Banks of the European Union and other national institutions approved as data providers by the STEP Market Committee.
