The definition of “Buy side” firms means end user clients (ie, investing institutions such as mutual funds, pension funds, insurance companies, hedge funds, CTAs, asset managers, and corporates). Buy side firms may have investors as clients, but have no trading clients. Technology, platform and service providers of any type, including broker-dealers and prime of primes that may be clients of other firms but have trading clients of their own, do not fall into the definition of “buy side” firms.

Event Programme

9.00-9:30 Coffee & Registration

9:30-10:00 Keynote:"The Global Code of Conduct and what it means for the FX and other markets"
David Clark, Chairman, the Wholesale Markets Brokers' Association; and Honorary Past President, ACI – The Financial Markets Association

10:00-11:00 Panel 1: China and the Global Economy
2016 has been a year of significant geopolitical shifts, with the Brexit decision, US elections and continued uncertainty around the future of Europe. All of which is occurring at a time when China’s influence on the global economy continues to grow. But what impact will these events have on China’s growth trajectory, and what trading opportunities and pitfalls should firms be looking at as a result?

This panel will also discuss:

•    What will be the key driver for China’s economic performance over the next 18 months?
•    What impact will a slowdown in such large economies as the EU have on China’s markets?
•    Will geopolitics or monetary policy have a bigger impact on Asian markets?
•    What are the unintended consequences of Brexit for China and Asia at large?
•    What are the implications for capital flow surrounding One Belt One Road?

11.00-11.30 Coffee Break

11:30-12.30 – Panel 2: What Next for the RMB?

It is impossible to discuss the future of China’s financial markets without talking about the evolving role of the renminbi (RMB). The latest BIS figures show that RMB trading has grown by over 80% globally in the past three years, the currency is now included in the IMF’s Special Drawing Rights (SDR) basket and speculation continues about what internationalization of the RMB means for China – and the rest of the world.

This panel will also discuss:

·    The increasing focus of RMB volatility against non-dollar currencies

·    What will be the impact of the RMB’s inclusion in the SDR basket?

·    What are the next steps towards internationalising the RMB?

·    Challenges for RMB as a payments currency

·    Who is winning the race to become the main offshore RMB hub?

12:30-1:30 Lunch

1:30-2:30  Panel 3: Blockchain and the Future of Financial Markets

Blockchain technology has captured the imagination of both the capital markets and the public at large. Investment money has been pouring into finding blockchain solutions to a wide range of issues in the financial services industry, while many banks have been exploring internal applications for this technology. But where are the areas that blockchain technology can really benefit financial markets and how can firms practically apply it to their businesses?

This panel will also discuss:

·      When will practical applications of this technology actually be implemented?

·      Can blockchain be used to settle FX transactions?

·      What are the biggest challenges regarding mainstream adoption of blockchain technology?

·      What are the legal implications regarding blockchain?

·      Does China have an opportunity to overtake Western markets in the adoption of blockchain?

2:30-3:30 Panel 4: Providing a New Platform for RMB Growth

The prominence of RMB as a currency is increasingly reflected in the trading volumes of CNH on the offshore multibank trading platforms. Indeed, it has been observed that CNH often trends with major currencies rather than minor ones now. But what are the platforms themselves doing to help promote the trading of this currency, and how do they see this market evolving?

This panel will also discuss:

·      What happens when the offshore and onshore markets meet?

·      Are there any barriers to the growth of CNH trading?

·      Do listed and OTC markets grow in harmony or in competition?

·      Different models for accessing Chinese currency

·      How are trading platforms encouraging liquidity growth?

·      The future of electronic RMB markets

3:30-4:00 Coffee Break

4:00-5:00 Panel 5: How Will Technology Shape FX Trading in China?

Technology has played a huge part in the development of the FX market globally, and will continue to do so. But which technological developments will prove to be the most important for Chinese markets, and how should they be deployed? Is there a “second-mover” advantage in terms of technology for less mature financial systems, whereby they can learn from other markets?

This panel will also discuss:

·      What are the limitations in moving FX trading onto electronic platforms?

·      How can technology help boost trading volumes?

·      What are the operational risks associated with new FX technology?

·      Which pre- and post-trade technology innovations will have the biggest impact in China?

·      Is China ready for widespread algorithmic trading?
