ICMA Workshop: Bond syndication practices for compliance professionals and other non-bankers

This workshop aims to give compliance professionals an in-depth and thorough understanding of the current practices that are involved in launching a deal in the international debt capital market. The course explains precisely how the deal is done, starting with first steps in the pre-launch process - looking at the pitch book, the mandate, the roadshow and the prospectus - through syndication, including book building and allocation, up to and including the final public launch of the issue. At each point in the progress of the deal through to launch, the interaction of current regulation with the process, are considered (including the Market Abuse Directive and the Prospectus Directive). The sessions are interactive, giving participants the opportunity to raise and discuss queries from their own experience.
