On 18 February 2015, London Stock Exchange hosted an event to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the launch of ORB, the Order book for Retail Bonds. To mark the occasion, Exchange executives, bond issuers, market participants and industry experts gathered to discuss the growth of the retail bond market and the outlook for the next year.

Since its inception in February 2010, ORB has helped a range of issuers from different market sectors to diversify their funding strategies by tapping into growing retail demand for fixed income securities and raising over £4.3 billion through 46 dedicated bond issues.

The agenda is available here.
