SHANGHAI, Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Global investments advisor and Chairman of AIA Group Shawn Baldwin last week joined China's key hedge fund and currency traders at the Profit and Loss Conference, weighing in on various factors that could potentially impact Chinese currency and monetary policy in the near future.
Baldwin, alongside Zhang Shengju, General Manager of the Research Department, China Foreign Exchange Trade System, led the panel "The Future of CNH Trading," an exploration of how traders and other market players can position themselves to benefit from rapid CNH growth, whether or not this growth endangers the FX NDF market, and the impact of algorithmic trading on developing currencies.
The international event, free to attend for the buy side and bank attendees of Asia, brought together end user clients of insurance companies, pension funds, independent traders, CTAs, asset managers and corporates to hear industry leaders discuss various topics including global regulation, the benefits of CNH trading and its potential impact on the FX NDF market, and Asia's future in derivative trading and the FX market.
"Today, China is at the center of all macro global finance discussions," Baldwin said. "The impact of China's policy on its currency affects the emerging markets as well as developed western markets. The foreign exchange rate is of great importance to the entire world. I was happy to have been included on the panel to discuss this vital topic."
Additional speakers included David Clark, Chairman of the Wholesale Markets Brokers' Association and honorary past president of ACI - The Financial Markets Association, who delivered the chairman's address, "Update on Global Regulation"; Fu Qing, head of FX Trading, Financial Markets, for Standard Chartered Bank, China, who spoke on a panel examining the outlook for the FX market in Asia, advantages and disadvantages; and Chris Coletti, Director of Sales, MarketFactory Inc., and Galen Stops, Deputy Editor, Profit & Loss, discussed the risk factors of building a robust risk chain.
During the forum, Stops tweeted: "Shawn Baldwin suggests that the PBOC might be targeting the position of GBP as an international reserve currency on the opening panel at Forex Network Shanghai."
