EU Bonds DUBAI final

Since its launch in 2021, the EU-Bonds €150bn annual issuance programme has provided the impetus for the transformation of Europe’s economy and created a new opportunity for global investors.

This event, organised by OMFIF and with the participation of the European Commission, provides investors in the Middle East with insights into how EU bonds are developing into a global benchmark and as a safe asset for capital markets.

The event will bring together high-level EU representatives – led by Johannes Hahn, European Commissioner for budget and administration – with senior representatives from central banks, sovereign funds, public pension funds, international financial institutions and influential business leaders in the Middle East.

Sessions will include:

  • How to make a modern, global economy
  • Incorporating EU bonds into a fixed income portfolio
  • Creating a global benchmark in green bonds
  • Enhancing liquidity and developing market infrastructure
  • The economic outlook for Europe

Please note that this in-person meeting will be held in Dubai.
