In the midst of significant global change and uncertainty, securitisation market participants are all asking important strategic questions about the future. It has never been more important for key market participants - regulators, government officials and all private sector participants - to come together to discuss what our markets should look like in the future, given the importance of securitisation to the real economy. We must recognise that regulatory and policy changes should and will be made. The ESF/IMN Global ABS event is the perfect forum for those discussions and senior-level networking to occur.
Given the importance of this event, members of the ESF have recommended that the event be moved to the Hilton Metropole in London in order to maximize the opportunity for participation in these key policy and client networking discussion. By relocating the event to London, and condensing the programme to two days, we are taking into account ESF member's interest in cost controls such as travel and entertainment budgets, and minimising time away from work and other important obligations. The hotel offers ample opportunity for arranging private business meetings in the many separate rooms available, while the agenda is focused on practical 'need to know' topics such as: Restoring term ABS and ABCP investor confidence, reshaping business models, the future of securitisation regulation, the roles of central banks and governments, the changing CRA environment, products that will continue and many other important issues.
With more than 2,700 attendees in 2008, Global ABS 2009 will be the essential, annual global gathering of all your industry peers. Join them this June to explore and define the road ahead for the international structured finance markets.
