ASF returned to Toronto for an
evening of networking and important discussions of the key cross border
business trends in the securitization and covered bond markets. Panelists
explored the primary asset classes and structures being issued across borders
and the primary policy changes that are influencing transactions.
questions at the seminar included:
- What key factors continue to
drive US Dollar-denominated Canadian covered bond issuance?
areas of the Canadian market will likely see an uptick in issuance in coming
years? How much of that issuance is expected to be sold to domestic vs.
- What impact could recent changes in US commodity
pool regulations have on cross border issuance?
- What are the key
areas of global concern with Basel III for structured transactions and how
will those proposals alter issuance trends?
- What is the status of
the Canadian Securities Administrators' (CSA) proposed ABS disclosure
- What will global regulatory initiatives, such as IOSCO's
recent request for consultation, mean for regulatory reform in jurisdictions
with smaller regulatory footprints?
complimentary for ASF members and nonmembers.
