The IFLR European Capital Markets Forum returned to London for the 14th successful year on April 19, 2017.

International Financial Law Review brought together over 320 bankers’ counsel, corporate counsel, funds counsel and leading private practice lawyers at The Waldorf Hilton hotel in London.

Since the summer of 2016, Brexit has been the buzzword that everyone has becoming sick of. But the impact on the markets is huge. The progress of the Capital Markets Union is more important than ever, Priips has been officially delayed by 12 months and London is fighting to remain the number one choice for finance in Europe.

The political impacts don’t stop there. Global developments now mean that the end of all-encompassing regulation is in sight. De-internationalisation is the focus on many, especially with regard to bank capital.

That said, liquidity remains high. As such, securitisation is struggling to get the foothold regulators are now supporting for it. High yield markets are also slowing, but opportunities remain for emerging markets work, especially regarding sovereign issuances. IFLR will discuss all of these topics in an interactive panel format to engage with the audience. This offers the opportunity for everyone to get involved on a range of subjects.


Delegates were able to:

  • Learn what is needed for the CMU to proceed
  • How to book build to get the deal done
  • Discover the impact of MAR on high yield migration
  • Hear about keeping momentum following Priips delays
  • Learn about CMU securitisation reforms
  • Listen to discussion on the need for Basel IV
  • Debate liability management transaction from emerging markets
  • How London is fighting to remain an RMB hub post-Brexit

 
Who attended?

  • General counsel
  • Bankers counsel
  • Heads of legal
  • Corporate counsel
  • Chief legal officers
  • Private practice lawyers


The forum offered seven CPD points, and delegates will gained an opportunity to network with senior legal professionals over breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks.

A fresh start

Brazil is late to the party when it comes to tackling corruption. But recent scandals involving a number of state-controlled companies have led authorities to implement the Clean Company Act, with the aim of enforcing better business practices. The Latam nation wants to change its corporate culture, but better business practices and transparency can't be built in a day
