The Forex Forum USA

The 9th Forex Forum USA was a great success. Held at the Westin, New York on 28 November, the event brought together almost 200 of the industry’s leading FX players including investors, central bankers, economists, risk managers, bankers and service providers. They gathered to listen to expert speakers deliver their opinions and analysis on the latest developments in the foreign exchange markets and their forecasts for the months ahead.

We were delighted to welcome Joshua Rosenberg of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York who was the opening keynote speaker at the conference. Joshua delivered an interesting and highly informative speech addressing financial risk management at the bank before the first panel of the day launched into a lively debate on the US and the impending fiscal cliff. Throughout the day panellists took to the stage to debate the most pressing macroeconomic issues, including the increased role of central banks in the FX markets, the future of the Eurozone, the growth of China and Asia, and the changing nature of safe havens. Before the final panel of the day we were honoured to welcome Mr Lorenzo Bini Smaghi, former board member of the European Central Bank who delivered a keynote address, in which he shared his assessment of the Eurozone crisis and the ECB’s monetary policy. His thought provoking speech was very well received, engaging the audience and inspiring many interesting questions. Finally, for the last panel of the day senior representatives from our lead sponsors discussed the future of FX over the next 12 months. The panel shared their predictions on the key currency crosses, their pick of the most profitable currencies for investment, and their analysis on the manner in which the market is changing and how this impacts investors. The day finished with a cocktail reception hosted by BNP Paribas, which gave delegates, speakers and sponsors a chance to network and relax after a full day of discussions.

Overall the day was a great success, packed full of engaging debate and lively discussions. Thank you to all our sponsors, speakers and delegates who made this event possible.
