Summary from Pareto Securities’ Nordic Corporate Bond Conference

Yesterday, March 18th 2021, Pareto Securities hosted its 10th Nordic Corporate Bond Conference, which for the first time was held virtually due to the present circumstances. The attendance was record high both in terms of companies presenting and attending clients, which reached astonishing 78 and 849 respectively. 


Pareto Securities were proud to have 78 Nordic corporate bond issuers presenting in a condensed and effective full-day program, making it the largest conference of its kind in the Nordics. The conference was kicked off by a presentation from opening speaker Peter Norman, former Minister for Financial Markets in Sweden (2010 – 2014), whom discussed monetary policy and inflation from a forward-looking perspective. Mr. Norman’s opening speech was followed by multiple company presentations, four held simultaneously on different streams, where some of the most notable Nordic corporate bond issuers from a variety of sectors provided detailed insights on the development of their respective businesses. 

The Nordic bond market has grown substantially over the past decade and developed form being a local market, to a Nordic market and now increasingly to a Continental European market. A great development where investors achieve geographical diversification and corporates gain access to a larger investor base. Pareto Securities is the leading Nordic investment bank in the segment of high-yield corporate bonds. We assist companies in raising capital in the primary market and we provide liquidity in the secondary market. Pareto Securities has been involved in 53% (SEK 422bn) of all primary high yield issuance in the Nordics over the period 2006 to 2021.
