Unprecedented challenges persist for issuers and investors in today’s bond market. Amidst uneven global recovery, increased volatility, negative yields, pending rise in interest rates by the US Fed and looming threat of the exit by Greece, the era of the Great Distortion shows little sign of waning. How will the markets behave with an increase in monetary stimulus programmes? How do investors remain vigilant in an environment of diverging monetary policies and reduced market liquidity? Will post-crisis regulations continue to impair the debt markets or are there other contributing factors to the liquidity drought?
Following a very well received inaugural event in February 2015, The FT Debt Capital Markets Outlook 2016 will bring together investors, central bankers, fund managers, primary dealers, issuers, market strategists and industry thought leaders to explore and debate the outlook for debt capital markets and how to find stability amid the market distortions driven by monetary policy.
