Event Overview 

Now in its 31st year, GBIF is one of the leading events for fixed-income participants. For over 30 years it has brought together debt issuers, investors, investment bankers, rating agencies, government agencies, and financial services providers from over 50 countries, to network and discuss the key issues affecting the international bond markets. Each year the conference draws an international audience of over 800 issuers, investors and intermediaries from all over the world.
