The conference, which will take place on January 14 and January 15, 2017 at the prestigious Renaissance Shanghai Zhongshan Park Hotel in Shnaghai’s Changning 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 January 14 and January 15, 2017 at the prestigious Renaissance Shanghai Zhongshan Park Hotel in Shnaghai’s Changning District, and will be produced in conjunction with YOCA, the event’s high profile Chinese partner and 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.

Commencing the event wil 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 unparalled opportunities for networking.

The event will be featured in Chinese media, and will be attended and covered by over 15 Chinese media companies, including Baidu which will present the event on a nationwide basis, in keeping with China’s emphasis on broadcast media channels for commercial purposes.

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, FX bridge companies, trading platform providers and payment firms will form some of those participating in the two day 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 two day program, with interviews, panel coverage and news and insights being brought to you in the detailed, comprehensive method that is a FinanceFeeds specialty.

Iris Soong of YOCA today explained “Shanghai is one of the most important regions in the world for the global FX industry. Here in China, this prestigious two day conference in which China’s industry leaders, introducing brokers and potential partners for Western firms look closely at all of the current matters of importance ranging from liquidity provision to sales, and from operating an introducing brokerage with wealth management and placing order flow with overseas firms.”

“We are partnering with FinanceFeeds to bring an international audience to the 2016 Financial Derivatives Industry Annual Celebration and “Golden Honor Awards” Presentation Ceremony which includes a host of participants including foreign exchange brokers, high quality agencies, companies which operate within the P2P sector and transfer business to FX firms, FX dealers that are exchange members, as well as high net worth customers and individual investors. These participants need to forge deals with reputable brokers, platform providers, technology companies, payment companies, and ancillary service providers and look forward to your participation to provide them with a new direction.”

“China’s FX industry is going from strength to strength, and is one of the largest potential markets for international companies in the world, therefore we bring together those who can forge the best partnerships” she concluded.

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.
