Event Overview

2018 is an important year for the covered bond market with the European Commission announcing a planned Directive in March. Action on SME covered bonds is also likely, while the ECB manages the gradual easing of CBPP3, and market participants push ahead with green covered bonds. These topics will be explored, with a focus on the buy-side’s perspective, at the seventh annual Covered Bond Investor Conference, hosted by the ICMA Covered Bond Investor Council and The Covered Bond Report.
This conference will feature The Covered Bond Report Awards for Excellence.
