2014 bucked consensus expectations, with bond markets rallying despite the US Federal Reserve completing its Quantitative Easing Program. Amidst volatility and gloom, with many investors pulling money out of Asia following market turmoil in early 2015 and a general flight from emerging markets, there are still many reasons to be optimistic. Economic reform is abound, as China is embarking on a significant programme of reforming and deregulating its economy and financial markets, while India and Indonesia seem poised to enact changes following electoral victories by their respective leaders. Will deal-making continue to flourish amidst a backdrop of healthy corporates and political headwinds? How will markets in Asia perform amidst diverging economic pictures? And will a Chinese slowdown disrupt Asian financial markets?
Initiated by students from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), the Asia Investment Banking Conference (AIBC) is the largest student-run conference in Asia focused on corporate advisory and financial markets. Held for the 7th year running, the conference continues to attract more than 300 of the brightest and most talented students from approximately 50 renowned universities across the globe each year. As Asian financial markets evolve and become more dynamic, this year's conference will comprise keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops and interactive learning sessions featuring senior professionals within the industry.
