Welcome to the ICMA Quarterly Report Second Quarter 2018

The International Capital Market Association's Assessment of Market Practice and Regulatory Policy

This Quarterly Report is produced by the Market Practice and Regulatory Policy team at ICMA. In the ICMA Quarterly Report for the Second Quarter of 2018, the Foreword on “A landmark year for ICMA” is by Juan Blasco, Managing Director and Global Head of Syndicate at BBVA and a member of the ICMA Board. This is followed by a message from ICMA's Chief Executive, Martin Scheck. The Quarterly Assessment is on the Brexit negotiations and the international capital markets. There are feature articles on: the European corporate single name credit default swap market; ICMA's engagement on FinTech and market electronification; the European Commission Action Plan on sustainable finance; the ESRB Recommendation on liquidity and leverage risks in investment funds; the private placement study on market and regulatory obstacles; and industry codes of conduct. The ICMA Quarterly Report also covers market practice and regulatory developments in the primary markets, secondary markets, repo and collateral markets, asset management, and green, social and sustainable bond markets. These contributions are followed by an international regulatory digest of recent G20 and European financial regulatory reforms.
