ASIFMA Annual Conference: Developing Asia’s Capital Markets

1-2 November 2018, Singapore

Event Overview

Building on the successful and high momentum in the industry, ASIFMA Annual Conference was an industry-wide event, providing a unique opportunity for global and regional policy makers, high-level regulators and industry representatives from both sell-side and buy-side firms to meet and discuss important issues impacting the development of Asia’s capital markets.

Well-established as a cornerstone industry event, ASIFMA Annual Conference spanned two days and attracted over 400 high-caliber participants from within the region and around the globe. Continuing the collaboration from last year, we once again worked in conjunction with the EU-Asia Financial Services Forum hosted by Securities Commission Malaysia and co-organized with the European Commission that took place in Malaysia on 31 October 2018 (the day prior to our annual event, and one-hour flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore). As such, many of the heads of regulatory agencies in Asia and senior EU Commission officials were in town and this substantially increased the overall profile of this year’s event.

Aligning this annual event, ASIFMA and Afore Consulting co-hosted the EU-Asia Financial Services Dinner Reception in a separate venue (Aura Sky Lounge, National Gallery Singapore) for selected senior regulators, institutional investors and dinner sponsors on Day 1 evening.
