The ICMA Nordic Committee, together with Nasdaq and the Nordic Capital Markets Forum, will bring together stakeholders in the Swedish Bond Markets to learn more about recent suggestions on how to improve bond liquidity and the growing demand from private investors in light of the recent interest rate hikes.

Is there a need to transform the bond markets way of functioning? Are Swedish issuers missing an opportunity to widen their investor base? If so, what steps need to be taken to facilitate a more transparent, accessible and robust market?

Please join us to hear how key market stakeholders representing institutional investors, issuers, advisers as well as retail distributors envision the future Swedish bond market.

Admission: This in-person event is open and free to attend for ICMA members and all interested market participants. Register now.
