Event Overview

- A roundtable discussion for issuers, investors and policymakers –

The covered bond market in central and eastern Europe has traditionally been far less developed than that in western Europe. But recent events seem set to change this. Several countries in the region are now in the process of developing legal frameworks, some in order to help their banking system access funding independent from foreign parents, some to help develop the local currency capital markets and some to attract foreign investment.

At the same time, the European Parliament is expected to pass the first ever covered bond directive in early 2019. For countries with covered bond laws this will necessitate changes, which could also provide an ‘upgrade’ opportunity. For EU member states without laws, this will increase the potential benefits from a regime. And for non-EEA member states the possibility of mutual recognition of covered bond regimes could open the door to the vast western European investor base.

At this exclusive and fully interactive briefing, issuers, investors and policymakers will review the developments in the CEE region, the implications of the covered bond directive and the key policy considerations that are necessary when developing a framework.  

*New format for 2019*: Limited to approximately 50 senior level attendees, this exclusive briefing will be fully interactive for all participants. Each roundtable session will feature 3 or 4 expert speakers and will be chaired by a Euromoney moderator who will lead the discussion as well as encouraging all attendees around the table to join in the debates, to ask questions and to share their own views.
