13th Asian Bond Markets Summit kicks off in Singapore

The 13th instalment of the Asian Bond Markets Summit opens today, with collaboration for transformation promising to feature heavily for participants at this year’s annual event

The 13th Asian Bond Markets Summit commences in Singapore today highlighting the changing factors taking place in the fixed income market. From technology to sustainability, there is little doubt that today's debt capital markets will continue to evolve and will be much different in the years ahead in the Asian region. Already other parts of the financial industry are experiencing a shift to electronic solutions, as witnessed in the foreign exchange (FX) market, where nearly three-quarters of the turnover in Asia is done on digital platforms.

This year's annual event will feature several influential speakers representing all parts of the bond market, including - Datuk Chung Chee Leong, CEO, of Cagamas; Paroche Hutacharoen, director of risk management group, public debt management office at the Ministry of Finance Thailand; Sanjiv Vohra, managing director and head, global corporate banking for Asia & Oceania at MUFG Bank; and Donghyun Park, principal economist, economic research and regional cooperation department at the Asian Development Bank.

In-depth sessions in the summit will look at a number of topics such as the prospects for Asian high-yield bonds, the opportunity of green infrastructure finance and syndicated lending in 2019.
