The 10th Annual Global Covered Bonds Conference will herald the first substantial gathering of the covered bonds industry in 2017, and will broaden its focus to a truly global perspective by identifying and analyzing the newest emerging markets for the covered bonds product.

This event will be host to issuers from around the globe representing both established markets and new hot beds of activity. European investors looking to increasingly diversify their portfolios will have a unique opportunity to tour the world of covered bonds in the convenience of a London venue.

Senior Of Counsel Jerry Marlatt will participate in a panel entitled “The Regulatory Round Up: Which Regulations Directly Impact the Covered Bonds Market in 2017 and How?” Topics will include:

  • What is next from the European Commission’s consultation?
  • Covered Bonds labelling update: Application potential to non-European products and impact on the label and keeping its sanctity;
  • Post/Pre Trade transparency requirements;
  • (MAR) Market Abuse Regulator;
  • Global evolution of the product: should Basel capture and recognize the significance of the new global CB developments?
  • MIFID: The end of investment bank market making or just a minor hurdle?
  • What direction is the ECB headed in? Changes with respect to the repo framework (moving FRN haircuts from 0-1Y maturity bucket to the one corresponding to the actual maturity, haircuts of retained soft bullet and conditional pass through covered bonds, additional reporting requirements for rating agencies); and
  • Should we still be concerned with covered bond default risk in a BRRD and maturity extension world?
