Providing you with high quality finance and investment market insights and conferences

There are many conferences on loans, and there are many conferences on bonds, but this is the only event that brings both bonds and loans together on the same platform, which reflects what is happening in the market.
Peter Bulbrook, Barclays Capital
This conference is now the only conference in the calendar that attracts the largest number of CFOs/ Treasurers and all key industry professionals. For me, this is the only conference worth attending each year
Hasan Mustafa, RBS
The organisation and programming of the event were superb; rich in attendance in both numbers and quality of delegates, it was a great opportunity to take advantage of bilateral relationship meetings.
Abraham Nwankwo, Debt Management Office, Nigeria
Networking, networking, networking……… by far the largest platform for loans and bonds bankers and issuers in Middle East. Worth investing 2 days!
Chiradeep Deb, Mashreq
The best debt market conferences in the world...
