Retail Therapy: Local capital finance and the retail bond market

Kindly supported by the London Stock Exchange

Local capital investment faces a challenging future: centrally provided funding is set to be reduced by 30 per cent over the spending review period and major investment programmes in schools and hospitals are disappearing.

In this challenging context our report is set to examine how the retail bond market could become part of this new capital finance landscape.

This launch event will involve presentations from high profile figures from the local government sector, the financial services industry and the report’s lead researcher, followed by a panel discussion and networking.
