The future landscape of the derivative market in Asia

About this webinar

Managing Asia exposures can be challenging. Liquidity, latency, and time zone difference can pose obstacles to derivatives investors who seek to capture the Asia opportunity. But that has changed. In this webinar Colt, HKEX, JP Morgan and MSCI will discuss the significant shifts the market has seen this year:

  • What are the latest trends and derivatives developments in Asia?
  • How are the pandemic and the US-China trade war affecting investments and what will the global financial markets look like? 
  • How to build an agile infrastructure to support trading across multiple venues?
  • What further improvements would help clients navigate the trading ecosystem?
