  • China's Bond Market Reforms: How Can Foreign Investors Reap the Benefits? Recorded: Jun 20 2018 56 mins
    Moderator; Matthew Thomas, Asia Bureau Chief, Euromoney Institutional Investor
    The discussion will cover the following topics:
    How does Bond Connect compare to previous schemes targeted towards foreign investors, including QFII/RQFII and CIBM Direct? What are the advantages it offers over those programmes?

    What are the hurdles still remaining for investors using the Bond Connect scheme? European Ucits funds remain locked out of the market because of delivery-versus-payment issues -- are there other problems investors need to see addressed?

    Is the Hong Kong-China Bond Connect only the first step in a wider series of reforms? How much impact could London-China Bond Connect have on foreign fund flows into China's bond market?

    How important is China's inclusion in global bond indices going to be for driving demand from offshore investors? How much has that impacted demand already?

    What reforms do Chinese regulators need to make to ensure a more widespread inclusion in the global indices? Do you see these happening anytime soon?

    What opportunities do wholly-owned foreign enterprises (WFOEs) offer to foreign investors? Are these increasingly going to become the best way to bridge the gap between the onshore and offshore bond markets?

    Finally, when will foreign investors start to buy a broader range of credits in China's onshore bond market? Will China soon become a credit play rather than just a rates play?

  • The fight against cyber crime in financial services: how prepared are you? Recorded: Sep 26 2017 61 mins
    Matthew Thomas, Asia Bureau Chief, Euromoney Institutional Investor
    Euromoney Moderator:
    Matthew Thomas, Asia Bureau Chief, Euromoney Institutional Investor

    Speakers:
    - Margaret Harwood-Jones, Global Head of Securities Services, Standard Chartered

    Agenda:
    Know your (cyber) enemy
    Technology advancements have changed the way financial services operate, but they have also ushered in new challenges and threats.
    What are the risks, how big are they and what is the impact? Eg. Data theft versus system shut downs – which has a greater economic threat?

    When financial services are attacked…
    Cyber criminals have exposed vulnerabilities of financial institutions to disturbing effect. Is it more effective for banks to counter cyber risks on their own, or collectively as an industry? Would it help to have a central regulator for bank cyber security? When assessing counterparty risks, how much weightage is placed on their cyber security controls?

    Responding to the cyber challenge – how financial services can best prepare
    The establishment of regulatory controls and standards can only go so far, and the industry itself need to do much more to improve the situation – getting the basics right in a legacy environment, sharing best practices, building a security-based culture etc…

    Looking ahead: Anticipating paradigm shifts
    How much closer are we to creating ‘unhackable’ systems? Can quantum computing or other technologies present a cost-efficient solution?
