Primary markets




ICMA’s work in the primary markets, where new securities are issued to raise international capital, is based on a strong legacy from the International Primary Market Association (IPMA), one of ICMA’s predecessor organisations.

Guidance and recommendations on the processes and documentation required for the issuance of international securities can be found in the ICMA Primary Market Handbook (IPMA Handbook).
