The Annual Corporate Finance Conference is Israel’s largest event of its kind.
Breakdown: Around 500 participants, out of which 85% are CEOs and CFOs of mid and large cap firms, 15% are service providers (legal advisors, accountants, etc.).
The conference examines various alternatives for raising capital against the backdrop of the prolonged uncertainty in the global and Israeli economic environments. It also examines the financing alternatives available to companies: private equity alternatives, bond offerings, securitization, equity, venture capital, mergers and acquisitions, unrated bonds, credit, institutional credit, bond settlements, bank credit, mezzanine funding and other related issues including debt rating, IT projects, factoring, leasing and other related topics.
Target Audience: CFOs, CEOs and chairpersons of mid-sized and larger companies, investment managers, bankers, regulators, analysts, rating companies, attorneys, accountants and auditors economists and underwriters.
Background: In the past decade, there has been a fundamental change in the means of financing available to firms. The opening of the non-bank debt market - an incomplete revolution - together with the growth in supplementary financing means, has undermined the longstanding hegemony of the banks. The last global economic crisis has created new challenges for both firms and financing institutions.
