National Asset-Liability Management Europe
The following content contains information on the recent 2015 National Asset-Liability Management Europe conference. 2016 updates coming soon.
Updating portfolios to prepare for divergence in monetary policy
Over the past months, developed economies have seen a growing divergence in monetary policy. The Fed has ended its quantitative easing programme, but with economies in the Eurozone remaining sluggish, the ECB has commenced its "QE light" ABS purchase programme and many think it may soon have to join Japan in full QE.
With this emerging dichotomy, central banks will continue to face volatility in markets as interest rates rise in some economies and fall in others. Sovereign investors must ask themselves what this will mean for particular asset markets and global liquidity. What will the consequences be for central bank balance sheets as yields diverge? How can central banks limit exposure to interest rate risk?
These are critical questions facing the industry and official sector investors recognise the benefits of sharing experiences to explore answers. In this vein, Central Banking Publications is delighted to announce the dates of its 8th annual National Asset-Liability Management Europe conference which will take place in London on the 12th & 13th March 2015.
