Welcome to the ICMA Quarterly Report First Quarter 2019

The International Capital Market Association's Assessment of Market Practice and Regulatory Policy
This Quarterly Report is produced by the Market Practice and Regulatory Policy team at ICMA.

The ICMA Quarterly Report for the First Quarter of 2019 starts with a review of the year 2018 and outlook for 2019 from ICMA’s Chief Executive, Martin Scheck. This is followed by contributions on preparations for Brexit in international capital markets; on the transition to risk-free rates; and also on restoring trust in financial services by Andreas Utermann, Chief Executive of Allianz Global Investors and member of the ICMA Board. The ICMA Quarterly Report also covers other international capital market practice and regulatory developments in the primary markets, secondary markets, repo and collateral markets, green, social and sustainability bond markets, and asset management, including a series of reviews on the first year of MiFID II/R. Towards the end of the Quarterly Report, there is an international regulatory digest of recent G20 and European financial regulatory reforms, and a special section on FinTech in international capital markets.

We welcome feedback and comment on the issues raised in the report; please e-mail regulatorypolicynews@icmagroup.org or alternatively, the ICMA contact whose e-mail address is given at the end of the relevant article.
