At the 20th of September 2017, the Economic Council Germany in London is hosting – in collaboration with the Economic Council Germany – a roundtable discussion with Carsten Lehr, Managing Director German Finance Agency, on the topic “Current and Future Challenges for Germany’s Debt Management”.
Dr. Carsten Lehr is Managing Director at the German Finance Agency, responsible for Corporate Services, Risk Controlling, Finance, HR, Compliance and Strategy. The German Finance Agency is the central provider for the Federal Republic of Germany’s borrowing and debt management, comparable with the UK Debt Management Office. Before joining the German Finance Agency, Dr. Lehr held various positions with Dresdner Bank.
As Brexit negotiations progress, Eurozone and British markets have started to diverge across as-set classes reflecting the change in the economic outlook as well as an array of factors influencing the prospects of both currencies. In addition, the ECB’s non-standard policy measures have com-pressed government bond yields across member states and have even led to a shortage of Core Eurozone sovereign papers in secondary markets. As a result, the German bunds are still trading close to their record lows.
An invitation has been sent to the members of the Economic Council Germany in London, The Economic Council and friends. The number of participants is limited.
