Agenda Overview


8:30 Registration and refreshments

9:30 Welcome address
Janice Kan,
Senior Vice President, Derivatives,  SGX  


9:40 Keynote address: Asia economic outlook and implications for portfolio flows
Khoon Goh,
Head of Asia Research, ANZ

10:00 Interest rate returns and the end of Quantitative Easing
As the global economic recovery looks set to strengthen, a return to “normality” monetary policy in the major global economies is predicted. Not only does this mean a return to interest rate uncertainty but a major prop under the price of bonds and possibly volatility in the stock market will also be removed. This panel will look at the implications for asset managers and professional traders.

- What is the outlook for interest rates in the major economies?
- What impact will the end of QE and rising rates have on Asian markets?
- How has the interest rates derivatives market changed since the financial crisis?
- What instruments can investors use to position themselves for rising rates?


Moderator:
Linus Lim, Co-Chief Investment Officer, Phillip Capital Management (S) Ltd and CEO, Phillip Tokai Tokyo Investment Management

Panelists:

Satoshi Iwanaga, Chairman, Eurekahedge

Jethro Goodchild, Head of Asian Credit, Aviva Investors

Ravi Pandit, Executive Director, Foreign Exchange and Interest Rate Products, Asia Pacific, CME Group

Divya Devesh, Asia FX Strategist, Standard Chartered Bank


10:45 Coffee break

11:15 ETFs rapid growth and expansion into new asset classes
Global ETF assets topped $4tr earlier this year and are fast growing in Asia. Not only is use of the instruments growing, ETFs are expanding into new asset classes and are being used in increasingly varied ways by the professional investment community. This panel will discuss the factors that are driving this growth and how ETFs can complement your trading strategy and portfolios.

- What is responsible for the rapid growth of ETFs around the world?
- How are ETFs increasingly being used as financial instruments?
- What is behind the popularity of fixed income ETFs
- What are the risks of the growth of ETFs?

12:05 Ted talk: Sustainable finance

Stefan Ulrich, Director, Paia Consulting Pte Ltd


12:15 Latency is dead, long live data driven strategies!

For years, speed has been the key edge for many professional trading firms. But now with the commoditization of lower-latency, increased efforts to reduce the advantage of speed at exchanges, and the costs of being among the fastest increasing exponentially, for most traders, speed is no longer the edge it used to be. Today firms are turning to more effective use of data to gain an edge with powerful effects.

- Is speed a commodity in today’s market? 
- How are firms using data to get an edge in today’s market? 
- How are big data tools changing data analysis? 
- How to select the best quant driven strategies?

13:00 Lunch

14:00 Keynote address: Harvesting premium with SPX options

As we are near the end of summer 2017, investors will be looking ahead to a busy stretch of earnings, possible interest rate hikes and a potential increase in volatility.   SPX options allow investors to achieve one of many objectives for their portfolio, including hedging against a potential market decline, and generating premium using the weekly and traditional monthly options.   Join Gareth Ryan, Founder & Managing Director at IUR Capital as he looks at implementing an effective options strategy using SPX for the portfolio.   Gareth will discuss the use of SPX options based on varying market conditions. This event will be interactive and will include a Q&A session at the end.

Gareth Ryan, Founder and Managing Director, IUR Capital


14:20 Global commodity reflation: long term trend or short term bounce?
The great commodity reflation has long been predicted and the last year has seen significant growth in some commodity prices. However, has this been a cyclical trend or a bounce towards a sideways market. This panel will look at the outlook, which commodities have performed well and where to trade them and ask if the market in Asia needs a broader participation to thrive?

- What’s the latest on the commodity reflation trade?
- Which commodities have seen the most investment recently?
- What new commodity contracts have been launched by exchanges?
- How can discretionary commodity funds in Asia attract more investment?

William Chin, Director, Head of Commodities, Derivatives, SGX

15:10 Coffee break

15:40 Customisable technology: buy and build
Technology provision to trading businesses has usually been a choice between outsource our build in house. However, this is changing with the rise of buy and build offerings by third party vendors. This trend is unlocking potential and providing a cost effective “third way” to access the best of both worlds.

- What advantages does a buy-and-build approach to technology offer?
- How are firms using APIs to enhance technology?
- What inhouse expertise do you need for the buy-and-build approach?
- How can FCMs develop technology in partnership with their clients?

16:30 Bringing the next generation of participants and businesses to the market

Finance is losing its attraction for many graduates in the face of reputational damage and the lure of technology giants. At the same time, rising market complexity and costs are extending the burden of training new traders. This panel will look at how the industry needs to work together to bring new participants and firms into the market.


- Why is the industry struggling to develop the next generation?
- How can exchanges and other key infrastructure help foster development?
- What does the trading firm of the future look like?
- How can the industry work together to bring new talent to the market?

15:45 – 17:15 Breakout session: Collateral and clearing for asset managers

15:45 - 16:30  Changing regulation, changing relationships

The global mandate to clear some OTC derivatives has combined with CRD IV and subsequent balance sheet constraints on banks to fundamentally change how they interact with their clients. The buyside now has to take more responsibility for its operations, faces new decisions on trading and clearing and has to understand how portfolios impact the balance sheets of their prime brokers.

-       How are bilateral margining rules and the requirement to clear some OTC instruments changing buyside behaviour?

-       What is changing in terms of how banks interact with their clients?

-       Why are some instruments moving into a cleared environment ahead of any mandate?

-       How can asset managers work with their service providers to become more balance sheet efficient?

16:30 - 17:15  Collateral efficiency: taking centre stage

New regulations for both the buy and the sell side and the drive for efficiency across the business is forcing firms to be much more efficient with how they manage and transmit collateral. While fears of a collateral shortage are overblown, there are issues with the optimisation of collateral across the market.

-      What does collateral efficiency really mean in practice?

-      What difference can better management of collateral make to a business?

-       What is the industry and infrastructure providers doing to facilitate and optimize collateral management services in the cleared and uncleared space?

-      How can the buyside and the sellside work together to better manage collateral?
