Securitisation in China
Beijing, China
March 30 - 31, 2019


Euromoney/IMN is proud to announce our new partnership with CAF100, the leading China securitisation industry group and host of China’s leading securitisation event for the last two years.

China is a new frontier for foreign investors, with a juxtaposition of complex regulations yet very traditional and familiar ABS assets. With more than $200 billion in annual issuance, the Chinese ABS market represents a unique opportunity for those seeking yield and volume.
This important gathering will serve as the catalyst for cross border deal flow, and will provide international investors seeking to gain a foothold in China with a distinct competitive edge.

With the addition of Euromoney/IMN’s international audience base, the 3rd Annual event will provide a fertile platform for international investor engagement with local issuers and key regulators, to facilitate cross border deal flow and foster new business relationships.
Our robust educational program will feature a range of topics to help our global audience navigate the nuances of the domestic Chinese ABS market. The program will also highlight global structured product offerings such as CLOs and SRT transactions, for the benefit of local participants.
