Take Notes - Directive Issued To Harmonize EU Covered Bonds



Our host Tom Schopflocher is joined by analyst Casper Anderson to discuss covered bonds; this time it's the EU directive, which is now on its way to becoming law in all EU countries. The EU directive is the first real attempt at establishing a pan-European standard for covered bonds (as well as an attempt at strengthening the EU capitals market union). We discuss how the law seeks to establish that standard across the EU, some of the hold ups some countries are having in trying to enact this law, as well as some of the important legal differences that still exist between jurisdictions.
