The Sterling Conference 2011

"Informative and very well attended, the Euromoney Sterling conference represented an excellent opportunity to feel the pulse of the Sterling market on several key economic and financial matters"
Carlo Fontana, Director, Head of High Yield Capital Markets, Lloyds Bank Corporate Markets

“A well-structured event addressing vital issues for all those with an interest in Sterling market”
Stephen Lewis, Chief Economist, Monument Securities

Euromoney was delighted to announce the return of the Sterling Conference on Thursday 29 September in London. This autumn’s second conference brought together almost 200 issuers, investors and intermediaries to discuss the opportunities in the sterling bond market.

With the turmoil in the Eurozone and the economic shock of the tsunami in Japan, now more than ever sterling looks like an attractive safe haven for investors. But deep worries remain about the path of the economic recovery, inflation and the ability of the coalition government to implement the promised cuts in spending over the medium term.

The conference re-assessed the situation in the public finances, investigated the inflation threat and looked at whether the influx of foreign issuers and investors had stayed in the sterling bond market.
