Hosted by FIIN: Investors’ Forum on ABS (Singapore)
April 24, 2020
Less conference and more educational forum, this one-day programme will serve to educate investors on the various types of structured products, compare the relative value of the APAC, U.S. and European ABS markets, and connect a global issuer audience with the local investor base. By offering this event in Singapore, we hope to maximize the participation of a growing number of local investors seeking offshore investment opportunities.
