We are delighted to announce that the AFME/EHYA 5th Annual Leveraged Finance Conference will take place on Wednesday 13 October 2010 at the Lancaster London Hotel in London.
With €10 billion issued in high yield in the first quarter, 2010 is poised to set an all time record since the founding of the European high yield market in 1998.
Don't miss out on the opportunity to hear from the heads of leveraged finance on the sell side and the leading buy side firms on what the new high yield era holds for the leveraged finance market.
Feedback from last year's delegates was very positive. The majority stated that the conference had met or exceeded their expectations. Registrants in 2009 told us that they felt the "presentations were great" and "the themes were comprehensive".
AFME has been approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority of England and Wales as an accredited provider of Continuing Professional Development. Attending the whole conference will entitle you to 7 CPD points.
