Training Programme Overview

The objective of this two day course is to introduce those considering raising finance on the bond market to the key features of the market and to investigate what is required by a company to plan and execute a successful bond issue. It explores in detail types of bond, the credit rating process, investors, bond pricing and distribution and the closing procedure.

As the availability of bank lending has been shrinking, mostly due to the enduring impact of the financial crisis and new regulatory requirements, corporations are increasingly turning to debt capital markets. Many European companies have turned to the bonds market by taking advantage of cheaper borrowing costs to diversify their funding and high investor demand.
