Bonds without Borders: A History of the Eurobond Market, by Chris O'Malley
Since its inception in 1963, the international cross-border bond market, more popularly known as the Eurobond market, has grown into the world’s largest international capital market, with more than US$20 trillion equivalent of bonds outstanding. The Eurobond market continues to evolve, offering an ever-increasing range of instruments, currencies and innovative product structures.

Bonds Without Borders tells the extraordinary story of how the market developed into the principal source of international finance for sovereign states, supranational agencies, financial institutions and companies around the world. Written by Chris O’Malley - a veteran practitioner and Eurobond market expert - this important resource describes the developments, the evolving market practices, the challenges and the innovations in the Eurobond market during its first half-century. Also, uniquely, the book recounts the development of security and banking regulations and their impact on the development of the international securities markets.
