This high-level, half-day event explores the outlook for European sovereign borrowing for 2022 and promotes idea-sharing and best practice in the industry. It brings together leading debt management offices, investors and intermediaries discussing the future for European sovereign debt.
Topics cover the immediate challenges of the Covid-19 recovery, prospects for a ‘return to normality’ and the future development of the markets. This includes debt management offices issuing green or other forms of sustainable bonds, how to responsibly adapt approaches to new issuance techniques and technologies and the increasing digitalisation of financial markets.
