New regulations taking effect this year designed to spur the growth of a pan-European corporate bond market might instead hobble growth due to excessive and Byzantine accounting and transparency directives, researchers from a London business school argued in a study. "The major first impression from examining these directives is how strikingly complicated the new disclosure regime is," said Alistair Milne and Mario Onarato, researchers at Great Britain's Cass Business School who interviewed 21 European asset managers as part of a comprehensive look at the implications of the new rules.
