5th Annual Impact of Technology on Debt Capital Markets

Is vision becoming reality?

Date: December 2nd, 2021
Time: 14:00 – 16:30
Venue: One Moorgate Place, London EC2R 6EA.

Unprecedented levels of monetary and fiscal support in the wake of the pandemic propelled global debt capital markets new issuance to an astonishing USD15.5 trillion equivalent in the 18 months to the end of June 2021, the busiest period in the market’s history.

This was achieved despite the disruption to working patterns and hastily improvised transaction processes adopted by underwriters, investors and issuers. One key banking topic that has been omnipresent throughout the Covid era in investment banking as in corporate and consumer banking, is how the changes forced by the recent past will affect the direction of travel towards and the shape of the ‘new normal’.

In primary DCM, market participants, including fintech companies, have had a unique opportunity to promote the benefits of automation and digitisation and leverage the advantages of new technologies such as blockchain.

Event Radar’s 5th Annual Impact of Technology on Debt Capital Markets IN-PERSON event will assess to how and to what extent new technologies have taken hold in primary debt capital markets. What, if anything, has changed? As we slowly start to emerge from Covid-19, what does the new normal look like in the day-to-day of deal-making? 

Moderated by Keith Mullin, the session will convene a panel of expert speakers to discuss this vital topic.
