Event Overview

Once a substitute for crisis-ridden bank lending, the high yield bond market has established itself firmly in the European financing landscape. A record of 54 debut borrowers have hit the market in 2013 so far, and total volumes are already £300 million higher than in all of 2012.

Our European High Yield Bond Conference, now in its 4th instalment, provides the best forum to discuss where the market is headed next and stay in touch with your peers.

Topics to be discussed will include high yield bonds’ role in sponsor-related and corporate deals, comparisons to emerging market bonds, the outlook for bonds in peripheral Europe, sector diversification, US-European market dynamics, and investors’ perspectives.

Come along to the premier event on European high yield bonds that gathers arrangers, issuers, investors and advisory, and discover what’s in store for 2014!
