 Debtwire’s Emerging Markets
Date: December 8, 2016

Organized By:

Description:  Over the last several months the flow of funds has indicated investors are siphoning money from destabilized Europe and an expensive US stock market by channeling it into emerging markets (EM). Specifically EM bonds. Over the summer net inflows into debt funds hit record highs, exceeding that of equity funds. Relative political calm in Brazil, tepid Chinese markets, stable commodity prices, and structural reforms that have seen EM governments accumulate less dollar debt, build up foreign reserves, and adopt flexible exchange rates to obviate mistakes from the 1980s and 1990s crises have instilled confidence. Investors have favored Latin America and Asia over Central and Eastern Europe because of tight spreads and strong fundamentals.

 Blockchain 2017: Migrating from POCs, Collaboration & Pilots to Going Live
Date: December 13, 2016
Location: The Washington Mayfair Hotel, London

Organized By:
The Mankoff Company

Description:  Now that we're coming to the close of 2016, we can see that the blockchain hype is over and we're looking forward to 2017 bringing practical applications. With financial institutions forecasted to spend more than $1B on blockchain projects in 2017, integrating this technology into existing systems will be one of the main challenges for next year. At the same time, we will probably see even more competition among blockchain providers which is not a bad thing as competition drives innovation. But all this investment comes with expectation: that blockchain provide services for mainstream real-world usage.
