Bond Market Developments

This NCMF and ICMA Annual Joint Seminar focused on the rapid rise in the popularity of green bonds. From only USD 3 billion in 2012, the global green bond market saw issuance amounting to well over USD 60 billion in the first nine months of 2016. Growth, internationalisation and diversification continue, underpinned by voluntary guidelines and standards, such as the Green Bond Principles. The seminar also included an update session on MiFID II and its impact on markets, featuring international and local experts.

Registration and a networking lunch commenced at 12.00 noon CET and the seminar started at 1 pm CET. The seminar finished around 5 pm CET and was followed by a networking reception.
