Bonds are an important instrument used to raise funds by governments, banks, corporations and projects. Issuing bonds facilitates greater diversification in funding and brings many benefits to the economy, including diversified funding sources and financial sector stability. The liquidity of the bond market is increased by repo agreements, which help traders finance and manage their portfolios.
This training course will provide participants essential information needed for issuing bonds and financing bond positions. Today, issuing bonds is a highly technical and complicated process. We will try to present it in a more user-friendly way. Pre-issuance activities, bond structure, legal documents, marketing and placement, and pricing and launch will be discussed in detail.
The course will also explain the growth and vital importance of repos on the financial markets. It will explore how these activities can improve bond market liquidity and be profitable to all parties involved. Its practical approach will provide participants with an insight into how financial institutions lend and borrow securities and utilise repos.
