Event Overview


Covered bonds are in the news in 2017, with the European Commission set to deliver its verdict on harmonisation of frameworks, and questions over how the ECB winds down its purchase programme. The ICMA Covered Bond Investor Council (CBIC) and The Covered Bond Report’s sixth annual Covered Bond Investor Conference examined these topical issues from the buy-side perspective on 1 June.

The winners of The Covered Bond Report Awards for Excellence was announced on the eve of the event, at the pre-conference reception on 31 May.
