Euromoney/IMN is proud to announce our new partnership with CAF100, the leading China securitisation industry group and host of an annual industry event attracting 1,000 structured finance professionals from across mainland China. These attendees include the major local originators and investors of ABS, as well as ratings agencies, law firms, and key Chinese regulators. With the addition of Euromoney/IMN as event partner, this year's event will feature a larger and more international audience including overseas investors, international investment banks, law firms, and ratings agencies. Given Euromoney/IMN's unique leadership position having hosted the largest securitisation industry conferences in the U.S. and Europe for the past 24 years, our firm is well positioned to place the Chinese ABS market on the international stage. Total Chinese ABS issuance volume in 2017 hit a new record of 1.47 trillion RMB (216 billion USD). The global structured finance investor community can no longer afford to ignore this awakening giant. As yield spreads are tightened in the more mature U.S. and European ABS markets, the appeal of Chinese ABS as a new source of higher yielding quality assets is drawing international investor attention. In response, China has made significant efforts towards opening its markets to the international investor community through initiatives such as the Hong Kong Monetary Exchange's Bond Connect program. Now is the opportune time to invite this global audience to China to explore further cross border investment opportunities. Likewise, the domestic buyer demand for Chinese ABS is so strong that we anticipate securitisation to remain a favored funding tool of choice for Chinese corporates. Therefore, the potential for this market to grow is very high given the robust domestic investor base. Our event will help to facilitate that growth by providing an educational and networking platform to the Chinese investor and issuer community. We will host sessions on a range of topics and expertise levels ranging from a Securitisation Basics Tutorial, to more advanced analyses of key domestic regulatory and legal developments and innovations in ABS deal structures and asset classes.
