Defining a Bond


When is a 'bond' not a 'bond'?

In recent months the UK has seen the launch of a raft of new 'bonds' specifically targeting retail investors. These have ranged from exchange-tradable corporate debt with index-linked coupons, to exotic non-tradable saving products which pay out in shopping vouchers or chocolate.

With such an assortment of different characteristics it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between traditional fixed income, coupon-bearing instruments and other products.

Market professionals are invited to join a panel of industry experts at the London Stock Exchange Group, to listen, debate and pose the question as to whether there is a growing need for clearer definitions of investment products packaged as 'bonds'.

Speaking at the event:  

  • Ben Board, Royal Bank of Scotland
  • Neil Dixon, Linklaters     
  • Paul Fuller, Tesco Bank
  • Mark Glowrey, Stockcube Research
  • Henrietta Podd, Evolution Securities
  • Andrew Ryde, RBC Capital
  • Simon White, Lloyds Banking Group

Date: 15 April 2011
Time: 09:00-10:20
Location: 10 Paternoster Square, London EC4M 7LS
