A smaller share of European banks intend to issue bail-in debt today than in December 2018, according to an EU-wide survey. 

Out of a sample of 62 banks, 45% expect to sell more senior non-preferred and senior holding company debt, down from 65% of a 53-bank sample at end-2018. 

In contrast, more banks plan to grow their retail deposit piles – 40% compared with 35% in December. A larger share also plan to issue Tier 2 and Additional Tier 1 instruments, 25% up from 15%.
