  • TheDESK


    We need to talk about bonds. Liquidity has been sucked out of the credit markets by regulation. It can only be replaced by a structural change in the secondary market, or a change to the issuance model in the primary market. Neither is happening right now. Fixed income trading costs are opaque at best, so achieving best execution in the bond market seems an impossible task. Wedded to illiquidity, a lack of price transparency could threaten to impact issuers.

    The DESK provides buy-side traders with precise detail on the macro-drivers, events and plans that are shaping liquidity and price discovery in fixed income markets. Published quarterly, The DESK delivers facts from the frontline of trading, opinion on the potential of new initiatives and support for fixed income desks across investment firms. Talking about bonds starts at The DESK.


  • Sustainabonds


    Sustainabonds is a new publication launched to bring you coverage of the deals and initiatives from the banking sector that are shaping green and social bond markets.
    At times overshadowed by sovereigns and corporates or deals from China and emerging markets, banks are increasingly playing a part in European sustainable bond markets commensurate with that necessary for them to contribute to the greening of the financial system.

    With experience of the capital markets dating back to the pre-euro era, and building on coverage in sister publications The Covered Bond Report and Bank+Insurance Hybrid Capital, the Sustainabonds team brings you news and analysis of the key developments in the sector, including initiatives from authorities and industry in Europe and around the globe.

    Whether issuer or investor, regulator, banker or other interested party, we hope you will find our publication valuable – sign up for our bulletins at SUSTAINABONDS.COM.
