The Securities Issuance Consortium is a market-wide initiative that promotes efficiencies within the issuance process - seeking to increase market liquidity and reduce transaction costs. Launched in 2021, the Consortium now includes a global audience of more than 200 individuals from over 50 industry firms, ranging from asset managers, bond issuers, (I)CSDs, law firms, investment banks and data vendors.
The Securities Issuance Consortium was initially conceived to reduce risks and delays when issuing bonds under Regulation S and Rule 144A. As of 2022 the group began to consult the fast-growing Asian bond markets. It will champion various new technologies that support the securities issuance process.
