Welcome to the ICMA Quarterly Report First Quarter 2022

The International Capital Market Association's Assessment of Market Practice and Regulatory Policy
This Quarterly Report is produced by the Market Practice and Regulatory Policy team at ICMA.

ICMA’s Quarterly Report for the First Quarter of 2022 begins with a Commentary from ICMA’s Chief Executive, Bryan Pascoe. The Quarterly Assessment is on EU/UK capital market fragmentation in a global context. There are international capital market features on: the Capital Markets Union Package; CSDR mandatory buy-ins; Hong Kong SFC conduct requirements for bookbuilding and placing; and the potential of sustainable bonds to finance gender equality. The Quarterly Report also covers ICMA’s market practice and regulatory policy work in the primary markets, secondary markets, repo and collateral markets, sustainable finance, asset management, FinTech in international capital markets, the transition from LIBOR to risk-free rates, and Asian market developments.

We welcome feedback and comment on the issues raised in the report; please e-mail regulatorypolicynews@icmagroup.org or alternatively, the ICMA contact whose e-mail address is given at the end of the relevant article.
