Clearstream partners with ICMA for the Asia-Pacific Primary Market Forum


The International Capital Market Association (ICMA) will host its Asia-Pacific Primary Market Forum in Hong Kong on 2 March which Clearstream is proud to support.

The Asia-Pacific Primary Market Forum brings together issuers, syndicate banks, investors and law firms active in primary debt capital markets to showcase work by ICMA and its members on the regulatory and market practice issues unique to Asian capital markets.

Clearstream’s experts will be present at the forum to offer advice on issuance and distribution in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Clearstream’s long-standing partnership with ICMA strengthens Clearstream’s role as a thought leader in the issuance community. Both institutions collaborate extensively on initiatives in support of greater harmonisation across the industry. Clearstream’s Global Issuer Hub offers a comprehensive suite of services enabling Asian issuers and their agents to reach investors worldwide in almost 100 denomination currencies. Primary market participants can rely on the Global Issuer Hub to access a deep pool of liquidity and an extensive network of investors.

With a strong emphasis on developments in global markets and the coordination of regulatory reform and featuring high-level expert speakers from the region, the event will be of interest to debt capital market professionals across origination, syndicate, legal, compliance and operations areas. The morning Primary Market Handbook Seminar will feature a presentation from Ruari Ewing, Director, Market Practice and Regulatory Policy, ICMA.
