We call on all investors and asset owners to play their role in the fight to improve bond market standards.

During our engagements with the JSE to strengthen bond market standards, they advised that they were unable to include certain protections in the final regulations. In order to effectively address these shortcomings, a set of "ASISA approved” DLR Guidelines were drafted, which is explained in the video above.

Futuregrowth has endorsed the Guidelines and we expect it will form the basis of phase two of the drive for bond market reform. For ease of reference, we have summarised why the Guidelines are important, read it here.

You can also watch our webinar, Investor Activism in Action, to learn more about this important cause.
