Overview

Central banks around the world are continuing to engage in expansive monetary policy resulting in unprecendented negative interest rates in Europe and Japan. Investors searching for yield are pushing global corporate demand and swelling global corporate debt. This creates conditions of greater market volatility. How will these trends play out in the medium and long term? What will the impact be of rising rates on the debt boom?

There remains little optimism that liquidity will improve over the next year, increasing the importance of initiatives aimed at improving liquidity conditions. Uncertainty related to impending regulations and volatile market conditions remain of significant concern. What role will MiFID, alternative liquidity providers, and increased monetary policy play? What will the catalyst be to change market liquidity structure and get past disruption to a sustainable normalisation?

These are the many questions that the corporate issuers, asset managers and institutional investors, banks and intermediaries, and regulators and policy makers speaking at FT Debt Capital Markets Outlook will aim to tackle as we provide a comprehensive update on the corporate and government bond market.
