|901- Capital Markets – Shoring up your Liquidity|
|Last year was a strong year in terms of debt issuance and mainly driven by refinancing activities. Issuers took advantage of the historical low cost environment in the first half of the year, and in the second half of the year, many issuers feared rise in rates due to the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis and lined up to refinance ahead of 2012 and 2013.
Our expert panelists will give us an update on the first half of 2012 and some outlook for the rest of the year on what to expect in terms of the overall state of the capital markets, and also the banks’ funding constraints.
