Welcome to the 17th Seoul International A&D Conference. In particular, I would
like to thank Yoo Kwang Yeol, Senior Vice President of the Financial Supervisory
Service, Chairman Yong Won Kwon of the Korea Financial Investment Association,
and Ahn Hyo Joon, CIO of the National Pension Fund.
To cope with the rapidly changing financial investment environment, Financial
News has changed its Seoul international alternative investments & derivatives
Conference since last year, and celebrate its second year now.
Now, it is difficult for investors to make satisfied profits with only traditional assets
such as stocks and bonds. In fact, domestic large corporations and the financial
investment industry are paying attention to various alternative investments such as
real estate and infrastructure overseas.
I hope Kenneth Buckfire Stiffle, the keynote speaker and other speakers will give
us new ideas and strategies for the Korean financial investment industry that wants
to expand their investment.
As Europe's interest rates have fallen recently, investors' losses on derivatives-linked
financial instruments have increased, which made more awareness of it. In the
afternoon session, experts will gather to share their insights on the derivatives
market's flow and future direction.
As all the major investors who drive the domestic capital market are gathered, I hope
this conference will be a meaningful spot to be an investment compass.
The hot summer is over, and it is on the threshold of autumn. I wish you all the best in
Kim, Joo Hyun
