The market for EU bonds: creating a liquid, safe asset

Leading market participants and a senior European Union official delved into the EU’s efforts to enhance the attractiveness of its bonds for global investors. The panel analysed key initiatives like the unified funding approach, quoting arrangements on electronic platforms and active participation in the repurchasing market. Siegfried Ruhl provided the issuer perspective, while Benjamin Adubi, Neil Murray and Asif Sherani represented major investment and banking players. Moderated by OMFIF’s Clive Horwood, this session offered critical insights into improving liquidity and access for EU debt securities in international markets.
