Please join us for one (or both) of our sessions.

During the first session, we will provide an overview of debt capital market trends in 2016 and what to expect in the months ahead. We will discuss some of the regulatory developments that are, and will continue to, impact issuances by financial institutions, including the Canadian banks. In particular, we will discuss the proposed US Federal Reserve long term debt, TLAC and clean holding company requirement, bank regulatory developments in Europe and the proposed bail-in and high loss absorbency requirement in Canada. We also will discuss recent NVCC issuances in the United States by Canadian banks.

During the second session, we will focus on regulatory developments affecting SEC and Canadian reporting issuers, including the increased focus on non-GAAP financial measures, the SEC's disclosure effectiveness initiative, the mining disclosure update and modernization release, board diversity, and related matters.
