Sponsored Seminar (IFR Thomson Reuters with Daiwa Securities, HSBC, and Moody's Investors Service)
Can Asia Fulfill its Bond Market Ambitions? – Evaluating Prospects for a 'Borderless' Pan-Regional Capital Market
03 May 2014 (12:00 pm-1:30 pm, Meeting Room 1)
As part of the official ADB Seminar Series, IFR is hosting a must-attend seminar under the ADB’s Knowledge Sharing Programme that will provide a timely update on Asia's endeavours to create a sustainable pan-regional bond market at a time of transformational change in global capital markets.
Through interactive discussion, IFR’s panel of experts will evaluate Asia’s prospects of realizing long-held plans to build a transparent, borderless, currency-agnostic regional bond market that will intermediate Asian savings for the benefit of Asian borrowers, thereby insulating the region from volatile foreign capital flows and minimizing the impact of extra-territorial US and EU legislation.
As global markets undergo a major shift driven by regulatory efforts to minimize systemic risk, the global landscape is changing. Asian authorities have a unique opportunity to mold the emerging status quo to the region’s needs, while Asian financial institutions have a fabulous chance to garner significant wallet share in a market ‘Made in Asia’.

- Is the lack of a single currency undermining the Asian bond market adventure?
- ‘Asian Eurodollars’: is an offshore-style Asia version of the Eurobond market anchored by a post-2017 fully-convertible RMB the way forward?
- Boosting intra-regional capital flows and bond market connectivity; Asian issuers aren’t raiding your domestic savings; they’re recycling ample regional savings.
- Neutralising non-regional hot money inflows.
- Creating an Asian safe-haven.
- Docs, legal, custodians, central depositories, clearing and settlement: fixing the plumbing.
- The role of ratings in supporting the growth of the Asian bond market.
- Meeting the needs of Asian SMEs
- Can Asian capital markets inter-connectedness match regional trade links?
