Has anyone else noticed a discernible increased interest in bank 'prop' credit trading in Europe in the last 6 months? Like with 10-25% of 'risk' of old...the quotations give the gist.

One of the best ways to kill the conversation is with "so if I were to put on this trade [x], how would you feel and who would need to be involved?"

Not exactly 'prop' and not in credit, but I heard of some desks that engage in 'p&l optimisation' these days. Lower limits of course but still... some market makers also tend to hold a bit mor inventory than necessary... what a pity that the expected customer demand didn't realise in the end!
