The Bond Investors Congress

***Over 500 delegates from more than 35 countries attended ***

The 17th running of the Bond Investors Congress held on 8-9 March was a great success. Over 500 delegates from 36 different countries attended over the two days.

Over the day and a half different aspects on how to make money in fixed income while navigating the coming bond crisis were discussed. A series of panels and sponsor driven workshops were scheduled throughout the programme and covered topics from the Eurozone crisis to the corporate bond market, inflation markets to emerging markets, sovereign restructurings to pricing risk; there were topics of interest for everyone. With a top quality line up of speakers it was a day and a half not to be missed!

Many thanks go to all our sponsors for their support for our 2011 Bond Investors Congress.

                                                                                                                                                                

Europe: Bond buyers brace for eurozone debt restructuring
by Mark Johnson

Not if, but when; Debt burden numbers don’t lie

A full-scale European sovereign debt restructuring is nigh-on inevitable, say leading bond buyers. Speaking at Euromoney’s annual Bond Investors Congress in London, a series of international investors argued that it was now not a question of "if" but "when" and "how".

"It’s coming," said Louis Gargour, chief ­investment officer at London-based hedge fund LNG Capital. Speaking before a late-March meeting of eurozone leaders tasked with finding a permanent solution to the crisis, Gargour said that policymakers "will come up with too little, too late".
