Panel 3: Breaking or bypassing barriers – the evolving post-trade environment.
Barriers to an efficient post-trade environment in the EU have long been recognised.  Does the transition to T2S coupled with CMU finally offer the chance to break through these barriers?  Or, does the innovative FinTech world now perhaps offer the prospect of reinventing post-trade processes in a way which simply by-passes them?

Panel 5: Green Bonds: More growth and mainstreaming?
The green bond market passed a critical hurdle, as the inauguration of sovereign benchmark issuance brought a long-awaited boost to liquidity and the vital reference value of a core sovereign issuance programme. The panel will discuss how this landmark development may herald mainstreaming and underpin further growth of the green bond market  - after more than doubling in size last year. The panel will also consider the relevance in tackling key environmental challenges, and market governance, including the central role of the Green Bond Principles and striking a balance between rules and incentives.
