GEM Public Conference: Long-Term Financing through Capital Markets - 25 April, 2014 Mauritius
Session 1: Access to long-term financing through capital markets
The session discussed strategies, key issues and challenges faced by issuers and investors in relation to long-term financing. Are the investment needs being sufficiently fulfilled by the current available platforms in the capital markets and what are the current preferred channels of accessing long-term financing? How can capital markets generate greater interest in long-term capital formation? What would make capital markets a more attractive investment platform?
Session 2: Role of intermediaries in facilitating long-term financing through capital markets
The session discussed recent global trends, developments and cross-border issues that impact long-term financing in both growth and emerging, as well as developed markets. How do prevailing trends such as bank deleveraging following global reforms, differ on a regional, industry and product basis, and how do these trends impact long-term financing? What can be done to increase the pool of long-term funds and what are the success stories? Can intermediaries play a bigger role in facilitating long-term financing through capital markets by smoothening the transition from bank financing and introducing new product innovations? What else can intermediaries do to promote long-term financing through capital markets and do they have a role in boosting the attractiveness of complex infrastructure projects?
