The Euromoney / ECBC Covered Bond Congress 2015, Barcelona 

Date:
10 September 2015

Venue: Palau de Congressos de Catalunya, Avenida Diagonal 661-671, 08028 Barcelona, Spain

Organiser: Euromoney

The covered bond purchase programme and record low interest rates are fundamentally altering the structure of the covered bond market. The investor base is changing rapidly and trading desks are looking at ways to come to terms with the illiquidity and the implications of MIFID.

At the same time European regulators are looking to covered bonds to be an engine of growth but still a source of financial stability. Capital Markets Union and the forthcoming Covered Bond Green Paper are potential game changers.

Outside Europe more and more countries, in both developed and emerging markets, are turning to the product as a way to fund their economies.
