IFLR European Capital Markets Forum 2019

April 4, The Waldorf Hilton, London




The IFLR European Capital Markets Forum returned for its 16th consecutive year on Thursday April 4, 2019 which brought together over 150 bankers’ counsel, corporate counsel, funds counsel and leading private practice lawyers together at the Waldorf Hilton, London. 

The conference took place just one week after the Brexit deadline. The impact of Brexit on the capital markets cannot be ignored and will proved to be a recurring theme throughout the forum. Also, there were landmark developments in the capital markets to discuss in 2019, including:

  • The impact of the Prospectus Regulation and green bonds on the debt capital markets
  • Key market developments in European ECM
  • The challenges posed by the transition from LIBOR to risk-free rates on the industry
  • The industry response to the Securitisation Regulation and other market developments, including STS securitisations, sustainable securitisation and specialty lending
  • The latest emerging market developments and deals
  • High yield deals in 2019 – a state of the market update
  • The impact of Fintech on the capital markets

In-house counsel and banking professionals attended for free. The forum offered seven CPD points, and delegates got the opportunity to network with senior legal professionals over breakfast, lunch and two coffee breaks, plus a cocktail reception.
