CHICAGO, Oct. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shawn Baldwin, global investments advisor and Chairman of AIA Group, joined business, government and policy leaders from around the world attending the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank Group October 12-14 in Washington, D.C.
The invitation-only conference brings together central bankers, ministers of finance and development, private sector executives and academics to discuss ways to boost economic growth and foster a sustainable, balanced and jobs-rich global economy.
The AIA Group is an advisory and investment firm that specializes in the foreign exchange, derivatives and commodities markets. The IMF brings all the relevant players to the table with a focus on eradicating poverty and making sure that prosperity is shared.
"We are at the cusp of an unprecedented moment: As the United States reduces quantitative easing while at the same time the European Central Bank begins ramping up, the result will be volatility and a slow-down in growth for emerging markets which have been the most dynamic," Baldwin said. "These meetings are critical as they foster the collaboration needed to navigate this 'new normal.'"
Baldwin has provided trading, advisory, research and investment banking services to pension funds, foundations, endowments and corporations. Learn more about AIA at www.aiafunds.com.
