Euroclear Collateral Conference 2020

Live the virtual experience

The Euroclear Collateral Conference and the Asia Collateral Conference - two flagship events combined into a single virtual event - 18 & 19 November.

2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. The current unprecedented circumstances have presented us with an opportunity to combine the Euroclear Collateral Conference and Asia Collateral Conference into a single global virtual event that will take place on 18 & 19 November.

Attendees will be able to explore the most challenging issues that the industry is facing through a mix of forward thinking discussion panels, interviews and keynote speeches - all from the comfort & safety of their own home or office.

We are continuing to build our programme – from which conference delegates will be able to select the sessions of most interest to them – and plan their own, tailor-made conference.

This event is by invitation only. If you have already received an invitation, please use the link to register included in that email. If not, and you would like to let us know that you are interested, you can do so by completing the conference request form.
