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.
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? How will Canadian issuers refinance the heavy redemption schedules of the near future? And a potential uptick in issuance if OSFI relaxes the 4% limit? How justified are investor concerns about Canadian house prices?
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? What prospects are there for supply from other American jurisdictions? Perhaps even from the United States as a consequence of reform of the Federal Housing Finance Agency?
For all covered bond issuers outside Europe the new covered bond directive creates opportunities for better funding from the core covered bond investor base. But what must issuers do to achieve this? Meanwhile how should national legislators implement the recent Basle recommendations for covered bonds? And what opportunities will that generate?
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.
