@Marty Fridson has organized High Yield Bond Conference for 26 years and is going strong still! This event was held on June 22 and 23 this year.
Just the other day, I met someone who works as chief risk officer and he was jokingly saying “I have worked in the country that has dealt with zero interest rate for the last x years. So everyone tells me that I am lucky that I practically have PhD in risk management in this kind of environment”. In addition, spreads are getting pretty tight. Then one must wonder how well does a conference like high yield bond conference do (do investors have something else to think about?) but when you have the magic wand called right mixture of topics and presenters, you can still pull a strong event.
First day focuses more on the technical side of the industry and second day, more on the market activities. The common thread throughout the two days is that they really bring strong practitioners to present and that formula seems to be working real well. For those of you who are interested in getting a flavor of what the conference is like, please watch this snippet. Join us next year, for the 27th Annual High Yield Conference and Master Class event!
