EVENT: Annual Foreign Exchange and Commodity Seminar

Date: 31st May, 2016 Time: 06:00 pm - 08:30 pm
Annual Foreign Exchange and Commodity Seminar

ABA's annual seminar on FX and Commodities featured four prominent experts and was led by Marwan Dagher, HSBC's head of institutional sales in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Janet Henry, HSBC's Global Chief Economist began the seminar with an overview of global growth trends, pointing out the significant role that EU governments are playing in driving European growth, and analysing the role of China in stimulating growth in the global economy. She was followed by David Bloom, HSBC's Global Head of FX strategy who delivered a typically entertaining, but also incisive, analysis of the reasons behind the dollar's weakness and recent moves by governments in major economies to devalue their currencies.

Marcus Grubb, the Director of Market Development at the World Platinum Investment Council, explained the economics of platinum production and pricing, and described how platinum is becoming more widely used as an investment vehicle, as well as an industrial metal. Ross Norman, the Chief Executive of Sharpes Pixley, described the current state of the gold market and analysed recent pricing and production trends.

Marwan Dagher then led a panel discussion which was followed by questions from the audience.

After the seminar, there was a buffet supper at which ABA members and their friends were able to mix informally with the speakers.

Photographs from the event can be seen below (on the Gallery Tab on this website). The presentations are posted below.
