As part of Global Markets' dedication to engaging with clients, understanding their needs and sharing insight, the event in London saw a group of the bank's key corporate and institutional clients interact with some of the world's most prestigious thought leaders.
The inaugural Global Markets Conference brought together 400 leading minds of the industry to discuss the crucial topics facing financial services today.
Executive Head of Global Markets, Olivier Osty commented, "The inaugural Global Markets Conference served as a reminder of the wealth of knowledge, innovation and energy that drive our industry, and drive us to create opportunities in the face of unprecedented challenges in today's markets."
The conference opened with fresh perspectives on 'big data', exploring how companies can use data effectively to become more relevant to customers. Several panel discussions then looked at recent elections and referendums. These touched on the reliability of polls before taking an in-depth look at the implications for the investment landscape with regards to fiscal and monetary policy as well as the outlook for global markets in 2017. Presenters then shone a light on Chinese market opportunities and investment trends following macro-economic developments and the opening of the China Interbank Bond Market.
