A well-functioning Primary Dealer (PD) system can be an important catalyst and a significant contribution to government bond market development. However, designing a PD system is a complex and continuous process. It can be organized in many different ways, depending on the status of market development, general market conditions, expected benefits, and the risks associated with its establishment. The objective of this webinar is to discuss the key issues of establishing a well-functioning PD system through three different country cases, including Brazil, Colombia, and Italy. The panel members will discuss the main characteristics of the different models, the key challenges, and recent changes and dynamics in the PD systems in advanced and developing markets.
