OMFIF’s Sovereign Debt Institute, in collaboration with the Emerging Markets Investors Alliance, is launching its Global sovereign debt forum. This annual event will convene debt management offices from across central and eastern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia, along with multilateral developments banks, portfolio managers and other key market participants.

This will be a truly global event, shining a light onto fast-growing economies to discuss their funding plans and how they are developing their investor bases. It will include sessions on investor relations and issuance plans as well as dedicated sessions on multilateral development bank hybrid capital and sustainable bonds.

As with all SDI in-person events, the entire day will be off the record with no media in attendance to encourage participants to speak freely and stimulate authentic discussions.

About the Sovereign Debt Institute

SDI colour logo

OMFIF’s Sovereign Debt Institute is an important forum for issuers and investors in the public sector debt markets to discuss their priorities and concerns. The intimate format of our events has generated positive feedback from both borrowers and the buyside.

Events hosted by the SDI during 2023 generated deep discussions about core issues affecting the public sector debt markets. These included concerns about liquidity, incentives for primary dealers, the disappearance of the ‘greenium’, the impact of private placements, the role of hedge funds and the development of market infrastructure.

Throughout 2024, we will build on the success of our 2023 calendar. This will include a mixture of flagship forums with larger numbers of issuers and investors, as well as more focused groups for discussions on specific issues.
