The global market for sustainable finance has come a long way in the last five years, its development largely made possible by adherence to voluntary guidance developed by the industry such as the green bond and green loan principles, which are internationally recognised de facto standards. As policy makers in Europe and beyond get to grips with regulation of this fast-growing sector how will this affect the market its ability to deliver on climate and environmental goals?

The quest for increased efficiency is a key driver of electronification in capital markets. Laws and regulations are being adapted in key economies to pave the way for digital securities and CBDC is at the top of the agenda of central banks around the world. The transition to a more sustainable economy entails an ESG data management and compliance exercise on an unprecedented scale over the coming years. Common standards will play a key role to support the digital transformation of capital markets.

11.30 Panel: The state of primary markets
Global primary bond markets thrived during the pandemic generating record levels of funding for the real economy. But a changing interest rate environment and the end of central bank support now present a different market environment for new bond issues. We also have an increasing focus on technology and what it means for the new bond issue process or even the nature of bonds themselves, as well as the mainstreaming of sustainability and various regulatory developments. Taken together, this is a critical period for primary bond markets.

A panel of experts from the buy-side, dealer and issuer community will explore why the short term money markets are so critical in the overall financial structure, with a retrospective on short term markets’ vulnerabilities over the pandemic, and an eye on optimisation of future performance. How will money market fund regulation affect access and accessibility to short term financing? Is there a risk of over regulation on this and other key sources of financing? And is there a role for sustainability in short term markets, such as green repo and commercial paper?
