On Global Quantitative Easing, the functions and operations of the equity derivatives of Hong Kong
April 21, 2012 Hong Kong BWC Capital Markets Limited held an informative seminar for bankers and brokers in the well-known Guangdong Province financial high-tech service area. The lecture was conducted by our Chief Economist, Dr. Daniel Chan, and our Head of Institutional Sales, Securities Division, Mr. Michael Leung. They analyzed the prospects for European debt problems and the impact on the global economy and HK equities in the background of global quantitative easing. We have also invited Mr. Simon Yung, Director of Warrant Sales and Equity structured product Sales, Standard Chartered Bank, to be our guest speaker. He talked about the different responses of the equity derivatives under quantitative easing, focusing on functional and operational analysis of the equity derivatives and the risks of the market.
The participants were mainly from well-known state-owned commercial banks and brokerages. They interact with the speakers actively, as well as in the question and answer session. After the seminar, participants stayed and had more in-depth discussion with the speakers, in economic issues between China and Hong Kong. The participants hope to join our seminar again to strengthen their financial knowledge and gather information on latest economic analysis from us in the future.
The seminar has been covered by media as well. The Economic Channel of Guangzhou TV has sent reporters to shoot and report the seminar. They have also interviewed our speakers on the opportunities among the markets.
