ASIA-PACIFIC’S ONLY FIXED INCOME LEADERS SUMMIT IS SET TO RETURN TO SINGAPORE

Over 40 speakers representing the full fixed income value chain and more than 200 buy side decision makers expected at this year’s Summit

As traditional methods of trading continue to be challenged, 2017 is the year (and time) to “re-think traditional trading”. Returning after a successful inaugural year, this year’s Fixed Income Leaders Summit APAC will be back in an enhanced format from 26th to 28th September at The Westin Hotel in Singapore.

This year, the Summit will be introducing for the first time a Women in Trading Think Tank, and continue the dialogue around FinTech in the FinTech Dragon’s Den track. The event will also host a separate buy-side only platform evaluation day, in addition to the popular Oxford-Style Debates and standard sessions.

Over 250 delegates are expected to join us this year, and 40 thought leaders are scheduled to lead discussions on how companies can successfully adapt their fixed income business to an increasingly complex fixed income world.

Some key sessions will be led by:

  • Mr Lee Dong Chan, Director of Fixed Income, Blackrock
  • Mr Benjamin Quinlan, CEO and Managing Partner, Quinlan & Associates (but also stand-up comic by night)
  • Mr Mark Goodman, Managing Director, Global Head of Electronic Execution (FX, Rates, Credit, Futures), UBS Investment Bank
  • Mr Adam McCabe, Head of Fixed Income Trading, Aberdeen Asset Management
  • Ms Alison Towers, Director, Global Liquid Markets Trading, QIC

“A perfect storm is coming in APAC’s fixed income markets. Shrinking dealer balance sheets, on-going regulatory reform, technological innovation and a complete market structure overhaul are changing the rules of the game,” noted Prachi Panda, Conference Director of the Fixed Income Leaders Summit APAC, “Traditional methods of trading are being challenged, and that’s why we’ve built this Summit – to help the industry evolve their trading desk and strategy in order to move forward with certainty for 2017 and beyond.”

The Fixed Income Leaders Summit APAC is one of two conferences organized by Worldwide Business Research addressing market infrastructures in the Asia-Pacific. TradeTech Asia, Asia’s leading Equity Trading and Technology event, will be hosted on 24th – 26th October 2017 at the Hilton Hotel in Singapore.
