The Euromoney/ECBC North America Covered Bond Forum will bring together domestic and international investors with issuers and prospective issuers of covered bonds to discuss the next stage in the development of the Canadian covered bond market and the creation of new markets for the product elsewhere in the Americas.
Our discussions will put covered bonds in context both for investors - asking how its value compares with securitisations and senior secured debt – and for issuers, discussing the relative attractiveness of the funding options available to them and assessing the conditions for a changing funding mix.
The Canadian covered bond market continues to be well received by traditional European investors, but will we see the domestic investor base also embrace the product and develop a liquid and resilient C$ covered bond market? Is this a pre-requisite for smaller, regional banks to start to use the product, or can they continue to rely on deposit funding?
Meanwhile, the success of Canada has spurred on new developments elsewhere, most recently in Brazil. What lessons can new jurisdictions learn from Canada and from other newer covered bond jurisdictions? And what prospects are there for supply from other American jurisdictions?
Covered bonds provide protection from bank failure. But for an investor, is that protection too expensive in the new regulatory environment? We will also discuss new capital levels of banks and the implications of different resolution scenarios on the value of the various funding and capital instruments from AT1 to secured debt.
For all covered bond issuers outside Europe, the new covered bond directive creates opportunities for better funding from the core covered bond investor base. What must issuers do to achieve this?
Join us in Toronto in June to discuss the key topics that will drive the next stage in the development of the covered bond market in the Americas.
