Event Overview

“Great event to network and get some education on current SSD topics. Every year, Euromoney adds a few new, interesting points to the agenda”

Sven Plass, Head of Division Large Corporations, Corporate Banking, Bank of China


Reflecting on a record Schuldschein market in 2016 and the challenges ahead

Thanks to the increasing phenomenon of internationalisation, the introduction of new players, and the need to diversify funding sources, the Schuldschein market reached a record volume last year. As a result, it has never been more important to join and participate at the forum. Engage with new and old participants across the deal chain as we delve into the challenges ahead for this market and whether the appetite among issuers, arrangers, and investors can be sustained.

As we return to the Jumeirah Frankfurt Hotel the location of our first event 5 years ago- this promises to be the best one yet.  With 2016 set to beat 2015’s market volume record, this year we will aim to discuss the longevity and potential of the Schuldschein in attacking the challenges in 2017 onwards. The key question now is no longer can the success be sustained, but how much further can we grow in 2017?  

Make sure you are in attendance at the International Schuldschein Forum 2017 in March, the only dedicated Schuldschein Forum, and be part of the conversation that drives your market forward.

  • The Schuldschein as a resilient financing source in turbulent times: Issuer and arranger experience of using the instrument in different market environments
  • Increasing interest from abroad: Analysing Schuldschein’s changing identity under internationalisation
  • Is a rating necessary in Schuldschein?
  • Green Schuldschein: A new string to the Schuldschein bow or a marketing tool?
