Four Seasons, Mexico City, Mexico
Rethinking asset allocation and risk as policies diverge
Central Banking Publications is pleased to announce the dates of its 5th annual National Asset-Liability Management Americas symposium which will take place in Mexico City, Mexico on 12-13 May, 2016.
Latin American economies have faced significant headwinds over the past year. The Fed's decision to raise its benchmark rate has sparked concerns of capital flight out of the countries and back to the traditional safe haven of the United States.
In Europe, growth continues to falter and this, coupled with a slowdown in the regions largest trading partner, China, and increased output of oil production from the OPEC region, have hampered the demand for oil from Latin America. And not only oil, but commodities across the board, from copper to corn.
These issues are making it ever more difficult for reserve managers and Central Banking Publications invites you to attend Nalm Americas where delegates are able to discuss solutions with their peers. Over two days, Nalm Americas will host interactive panels, thought-provoking presentations and invaluable networking opportunities to share insights and experiences.
