FinanceFeeds to present FX industry conference in Shanghai, bringing Western firms to a vital Chinese audience

The conference, which will take place on June 24, 2017 at the prestigious Shanghai Tower in the prestigious new Pudong District. We look forward to seeing you there

China has been the focus of many companies across the entire spectrum of the FX industry for a number of years now, and it is considered a very important region for retail and institutional firms, as well as their supporting technology providers and platform vendors.

For this reason, engagement with the leaders of the Chinese FX industry is vital, and in order to further the business relationship between China and its critical international partners, FinanceFeeds will be hosting a comprehensive FX industry conference in the heart of China’s financial center – Shanghai.

The conference, which will take place on June 24, 2016 at the prestigious Shanghai Tower, in the new Pudong District, and will be produced in conjunction with FX110.COM, FinanceFeeds’ high profile Chinese partner and co-organizer.

The conference will differ from many existing events, in that there will be specific subjects of interest to a Chinese commercial audience, as well as matters which are important to Western firms wishing to engage with crucial strategic partners in mainland China, and will be participated in by the institutional sector as well as retail brokerages and the all important buy-side, IBs and portfolio managers.

Commencing the event will be a full year-end overview of the important investment trends of 2016, and how leaders of China’s industry view their expectations for the OTC derivatives industry in 2017, which will lead to panel discussions which will feature senior executives from Chinese and Western firms, dissecting subjects that are topical to Chinese market participants.

There will be a very strong emphasis on face to face communication with potential business associates, senior executives within Chinese firms, in an exclusive environment with unparalleled opportunities for networking.

In terms of industry sector, FX brokerages, settlement firms, internet financial companies and their respective solutions providers, asset managers, big data risk management companies, liquidity providers, trading platform providers, portfolio managers and introducing brokers will form some of those participating in the conference.

FinanceFeeds has conducted substantial research in China over the course of the past two years, and has great understanding of business in the region and how Western companies need to interact with Chinese partners and vice versa.

Introducing the conference will be FinanceFeeds CEO Andrew Saks-McLeod, who will welcome international guests and exhibitors, and the event will be covered live on FinanceFeeds during the course of its program, with interviews, panel coverage and news and insights being brought to you in the detailed, comprehensive method that is a FinanceFeeds specialty.

Andrew Saks-McLeod, CEO of FinanceFeeds, stated “Many FX firms recognize real value in operating in China, and a few very large, well capitalized firms have succeeded, however there is a massive and largely untapped base of highly professional introducing brokers with offices that resemble those of brokerages, wealth managers, technology firms and hosting companies in operation, making mainland China not only a focus for Western brokerages but a very lucrative market indeed.”

“I very much look forward to meeting you all at the conference, and am certain that by convening in Shanghai, companies looking to secure their relationships with Chinese commercial partners will be very much at an advantage when provided with the opportunity to meet, discuss current matters of importance and secure very important deals” he added.
