Congress structure

Discussion forums and workshops

The opening forum will be followed by parallel discussion forums and workshop in six different rooms over the two days of the Congress. This year, the Investor Kick-off meeting will take place immediately after the opening forum. No separate registration is required for these meetings. The topics addressed can be divided into the following subject areas:

  • Implementation of STS securitisation regulation – consequences for the securitisation markets
  • Auto ABS – important also under STS
  • New alternative financing solutions and their impacts on banks
  • Brexit – the last act
  • Interest reversal and stability in Europe
  • Green finance – a topic gathering steam
  • Digitalisation and new paradigms


The "marketplace" with company presentations by Congress sponsors is located in the conference foyer and hotel lobby. It will provide a communication platform enabling delegates, speakers and sponsors to engage in an exchange of views. This is the perfect place to discuss the issues raised in the workshops and panel debates with the speakers in greater detail or to make contact with exhibitors during the breaks and to develop business networks.

TSI and some sponsors will provide an opportunity to engage in informal professional discussions with guests from the worlds of business and politics over breakfast or lunch.
