Chairman's Letter

Dear delegates and participants,

As we approach our 10th year in Asia for our Clearing, Settlement & Custody conference, our objectives are to remain true to the themes of custody and infrastructure challenges as well as regional harmonization initiatives, all of which have contributed to our past successes with this event.  We do however realize that markets in Asia are evolving with a number of underlying drivers that are influencing and shaping the Asian financial landscape.  Hence we have worked key industry thought leaders in the region to incorporate what we believe are topical themes within the itinerary of the second day of the conference.

One of the distinguishing features this year is an introduction into blockchain technology, which we believe will have a key impact within banking services potentially disrupting several areas of banking within operations, front office and risk.

We also believe that collateral management in the Asian markets is still a challenge with many market participants still looking for an optimal solution that can cater to both their operational, risk and liquidity needs.  For our event, we will delve into collateral management with a focus on liquidity and also provide some discussions around how Basel 3’s funding and liquidity directives could complement effective collateral management.

Amongst the other topics we found relevant to include in the Day 2 sessions are operational risk, Asian harmonization and how Asia can learn from Europe’s success with the T2S initiatives.

I look forward to welcoming all of you to Singapore in March in what should be a fascinating and thought provoking event.

Warm regards,

Sam Ahmed
