SCI's 8th Annual Securitisation
Pricing, Investment and Risk Seminar

London, 12 December 2014

Location: 20 Primrose Street, Reed Smith office,
EC2A 2RS

SCI's 8th Annual SCI conference focuses on issues affecting investment and trading of securitised bonds, and in light of the various on-going regulatory actions, the likely implications for primary market issuance, market risk, and valuations.

Panel discussions look at where relative value lies in investment opportunities, particularly in light of the ECB's ABSPP; Regulatory Capital Trades; Distressed Assets & NPLs; and how the CLO market might look in 2015. We also take an in-depth look at pricing and data challenges, and this year provide even more networking opportunities.
