EVENT: Glittering Performances at ABA Gold/FX Seminar
Date: 19th March, 2014 Time: 06:00 pm - 07:30 pm
Four international experts gave technical presentations on the prospects for the Gold and Foreign Exchange markets to ABA members and their friends on 19 March. The event received front page coverage in the London Arabic-language daily, Al-Sharq al-Awsat, on 21 March.
Marwan Dagher, HSBC's Head of Institutional Sales in Europe, the Middle East and Africa introduced the seminar and the speakers. Marcus Grubb, the World Gold Council's Managing Director for Investment and Strategy gave the opening presentation, and was followed by Daragh Maher, a currency strategist at HSBC, Janet Henry, HSBC's Chief European Economist, and Ned Naylor-Layland, an Investment Director at Quilter Cheviot.
Marcus Grubb noted that international demand for gold has recovered in recent months but that the biggest long-term development in the gold market has been the arrival, in significant quantities, of Chinese consumers who are now buying increasing amounts of gold.
The presentations are posted below.
After the presentations and a question and answer session, a buffet supper was served, enabling attendees to mix informally with the speakers.
The event was the first in the 2014 series of evening seminars to be held at the ABA's offices in Upper Grosvenor Street in London's West End. Details of future events will be posted on the website when available.
In addition to technical seminars, the Association also holds social events for its members and friends. The Association's Ramadan Iftar will be held on 14 July and the Annual Gala Dinner on 12 November.
