The New Renminbi Reality
Head of Trading & Product, ANZ
Economic and Currency Policy After the Party Congress
With Xi Jinping widely expected to emerge from the 19th Party Congress with a tighter grasp over power, we'll discuss the implications for the Chinese economy and the Yuan. Could authorities double down on deleveraging, tighten restrictions on property, or accelerate the opening of domestic capital markets?
Great For Each-other – Donald Trump & the Chinese Economy
Trump won the White House with promises to get tough on China, but aside from some aggressive tweets, he hasn't delivered. However, with mounting challenges to his domestic agenda, the temptation for Trump to lash out at China is sure to grow. We'll discuss the outlook for ties between the world's biggest economies and the implications for markets.
A Global Renminbi: Stalled or Just Getting Started?
A year in the IMF's SDR basket hasn’t achieved much for the Renminbi's global ambitions. Will more stable economic conditions in China allow the PBOC to revive internationalization, or will concerns about capital controls and deleveraging force authorities to keep liberalization plans on ice?

Yuan Going Home? The Future of Offshore RMB Hubs
The opening of trading links for stocks and bonds, and the inclusion of Chinese securities in global indices has spurred interest in investing directly in onshore markets. Policy changes are also allowing more foreign entities to raise Renminbi funds directly in China. Should Singapore, London and Hong Kong be worried? We identify the role of offshore Yuan centers as domestic Chinese markets open up to global investors.
FX Risk in the Era of Black Swans
Compared with a year featuring Brexit and Donald Trump's election, 2017 has been relatively sedate – so far. Have markets become too complacent to the risk of black swans lurking? We'll discuss where the next unknown may emerge, how best to prepare, and debate the future of FX policy and rates.
