The global financial market landscape is changing again. And the emerging economies from Africa to Asia are taking a lead as new growth engines in driving global economic recovery on the strength of their rising consumption and production across the asset continuum – from commodities to energy and currencies to indices. New-generation, tech-centric regulated exchanges and ecosystem institutions from these emerging, but fast-growing economies, will continue to play a critical role in the development of the financial market infrastructure and the new-age policy framework.
As the exchanges in these economies scale up market participation and consolidate fragmented liquidity, they will democratize trade through inclusive and equitable growth by integrating local markets with the global economies. Technology and IP (Intellectual Property) centric innovations will enable these exchanges in propagating the benefits of globalization – price transparency, efficient trade, hedging against price volatility, effective risk management and access to structured finance – to the last mile.
Themed ‘Empowering Lives. Transforming Economies.’, the Future of Financial Markets (FOFMTM) Leadership Summit, which is in its third year now, will provide an avenue for global thought-leaders of financial markets to deliberate and debate on the rising significance and role of these Greenfield exchanges to balance global trade and economy and reshape the Future of Financial Markets.
The Exchange Day on January 21 will be centered on the opportunities in financial markets from Singapore to Dubai and India to Mauritius and Bahrain. While the Ecosystem Day on January 22 will focus on forward and backward links, such as warehousing and collateral management, technology, payment gateway, info-vending and spot market, which inter-connects markets with participants.
The Summit endeavors to become a preferred avenue for global thought leaders and experts, especially from the emerging economies to contribute and influence the Future of Financial Markets.
