Event overview

Building on the success of ICMA’s inaugural Secondary Market Forum in Paris in 2019, the next Forum will take place in Amsterdam on the afternoon of 4 March 2020, kindly hosted by InsingerGilissen Bankiers.

The ICMA Secondary Market Forum brings together leading experts from the European fixed income market, representing banks and broker-dealers, investors and asset managers, as well as trading venues and technology providers. The Forum is an opportunity to hear, and participate in, discussions on the critical issues facing the European bond markets and the key drivers of evolving market structure and dynamics. Topics will cover market liquidity, developments in e-trading, new protocols, and automation, the changing sell-side-buy-side relationship, regulatory impacts (including MiFIR transparency and CSDR buy-ins), the growth of the fixed income ETF market, and the implications of monetary policy and renewed quantitative easing.

This event is an opportunity to engage with the key forces and trends driving and shaping Europe’s secondary bond market. The Forum is an excellent platform through which to interact and network with a broad range of market participants and experts from across Europe.

This event is free of charge and open to all ICMA members and to interested financial market participants; however, registration in advance is essential.

For security reasons, delegates who have not registered in advance will not be admitted to this event.

For any enquiries, please contact ICMA Events.
