By attending this Insight conference, you will learn how Canadian banks are dealing with the legal, structural and tax challenges to
issuing covered bonds without the special protective legislation that European issuers have relied on since the 1700s. Panels of
issuers and investment bankers will explain the particular motivations for creating and purchasing covered bonds, and representatives
from all four rating agencies will address their methodologies that permit these bonds to carry their highest investment grade ratings.
Our speakers will in particular address whether covered bonds will provide a safe haven from the capital market melt-down that has infected mortgage-backed securitization world-wide.
