The Eurozone today strongly impacts global capital flows. Since 2010, its future, and even its demise, has been widely speculated. IROs should understand the possible permutations of the Euro crisis, how it impacts their financing strategies and how investors are responding to the heightened risk.
The Impact of the Euro Crisis on Global Capital Markets*
Tue - Jun, 5 | 1:45 pm - 3:00 pm
Location: 6D (Convention Center Level 6)
Category: Capital Markets

In 2011, companies were virtually held hostage to the Euro crisis with regard to capital market access. The situation in 2012 does not appear to be drastically different as risk appetite and market openings seem to be determined by the evolution of the European sovereign debt crisis. As European banks face impending Basel 3 capital requirements as well as the fallout from the sovereign crisis, their strategy of asset sales, capital raises and deleveraging the balance sheet has important implications for the equity and debt markets. With over $1.2 trillion in corporate debt maturing in 2012 and 2013 in Europe, competition for debt and equity capital will be fierce. In today's risk on/off world, what is the likely impact of these events on your company and your role as IRO? What are the implications of these changes on your access to equity and debt markets, the trading of your shares and your ability to refinance? How does the European crisis affect your operations and investor perceptions of the risk in your business?
