Swiss Bond Commission
The Swiss Bond Commission (OKS) is the leading expert for all matters concerning the Swiss bond market. As the sole network for the key players in Switzerland, the OKS cooperates closely with both market participants and supervisory and regulatory bodies to offer its members a forum within which they can discuss market relevant topics and exchange useful information.
Following up our successful event last year, the Bond Commission has invited another selected group of active fixed income asset managers to present their individual business and investment cases for active management of currencies, interest rates and credit. This year our guest speakers' background is in the alternative industry and their investment approaches include all sorts of active strategies, using both long and short positions. Hear what their opinion is about topics like informational efficiency of markets, best practice in researching and processing of news or unconstrained fixed income portfolio construction.
The event will take place September 24, 2015, 5.30 p.m., see "Events"

In cooperation with SIX Swiss Exchange the OKS organized an event on the topic of "Liquidity". Judging by the attendance of over 100 this was a subject that resonated deeply with market participants.
Limited bond market liquidity is a challenge for all those involved in the market; Investors, analysts, brokers and traders and not least of all regulators. In addition in recent years participants have had to cope with, what is at first sight, the somewhat paradoxical situation of central banks flooding the markets with liquidity. For this reason the discussion at the event considered all of the different perspectives.
