About the programme
This half-day briefing will help market participants to gain a better understanding of the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) Primary Market Handbook and its practical application to transactions in the international capital markets.
The ICMA Primary Market Handbook, which sets out recommendations, guidance and standard wording and documentation for syndicated cross-border securities issuance, is widely used by ICMA members when lead managing such issues.
Since its launch in 1985, the Handbook has grown from a few short pages covering the issuance of straight Eurobonds to a comprehensive document covering a broad range of international securities. It is very much a 'live document', continuously responding to market developments when guidance or standardisation is required. Recent revisions include changes to the form of debt selling restrictions and an explanatory note on the operation of pre-sounding, bookbuilding and allocation processes.
This half-day briefing will cover the following key areas :
- History, nuts and bolts of the ICMA Primary Market Handbook;
- Scope and practical application of the ICMA Primary Market Handbook; and
- Recent revisions and topical issues (e.g. Market Abuse Regulation, allocation procedures and stabilisation).
This briefing is targeted at anyone who works in the origination and syndication areas of investment banks and securities houses as well as capital market lawyers or compliance staff involved in the primary markets.
