The New Financial Landscape: A Western Perspective - M2M Series

6:00 - 8:00 PM, Monday, June 29, 2015 - AmCham China Conference Center

Recent financial unrest in Europe have revealed signs of an economic slowdown. Will the lingering effects of this slowdown impact the US economy (still struggling to gain momentum) and the Chinese economy (as it cools down)?

Luc Henrard, Chief Risk Officer and Member of the Executive Board of BGL BNP Paribas in Luxembourg, will share his observations and insights on the recent happenings in Europe. During the seminar, Henrard will discuss the following issues:

- Is the "universal bank” model challenged?
- Shadow banking: what does it really mean?
- How can foreign banks be profitable in greater China?
- Can Chinese banks be successful outside of greater China?
- Who are the winners and the losers
