Euromoney welcomed over 350 delegates at the 2012 Global Borrowers and Asia Investors Forum.
The event kicked off with a discussion of the G3 bond market. Investors, heads of major asset management companies, strategists and treasurers debated the pros and cons of investing in G3 debt. They also took a closer look at trends shaping markets globally. Throughout the conference, various workshops and panels provided delegates with investment ideas and treasury solutions. The first day ended with an address from the chief financial officer of the European Stability Mechanism, Mr Christophe Frankel. He explained the transition from EFSF to ESM and talked about the measures his organization is undertaking to abate the European debt crisis.
The Ministry of Finance of Japan’s director for debt management and JGB investor relations, Mr Satoru Shibata, opened the second day of the forum. In addition to giving an update on the Japanese government debt, he talked about economic relations between China and Japan. After his speech, our panellists gave a comprehensive overview of some of the biggest issues in Asian bond markets, including macroeconomic conditions in China and regional inflationary pressures.
Euromoney would like to thank the sponsors, speakers and delegates. Your support has made this event a huge success.
We look forward to welcoming everyone next year in Singapore for the 2013 Global Borrowers and Asia Investors Forum.
