Euro safe assets
The suggestion of a euro area safe asset predates the launch of the currency, and a variety of proposals have been put forward since then for its creation which have been considered and discussed by policy makers, regulators, academics, and market participants. There is a current surge of interest in the design and feasibility of a euro safe asset and ICMA remains actively engaged in the ongoing discussions.
