Event overview

ICMA and the Nordic Capital Market Forum (NCMF) held their joint annual conference as a virtual event, looking at developments in the Nordic bond markets within a European context.

The conference focused on answering the following questions:
  • Are firms doing enough to deal with the transition to risk-free rates across all products and IBOR jurisdictions?
  • Technology is shaping international fixed income markets across the value chain. But how can cyber security be developed and harnessed to mitigate the threat of targeted and opportunistic attack?
  • What’s next on the sustainable financing agenda?
