NUS Business School Dean Prof Bernard Yeung and CAMRI Director Prof Joseph Cherian hosted the CAMRI Luncheon Forum from 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm on Monday, 19 July at the Shangri-La Hotel. Our luncheon speaker is Professor Marti G. Subrahmanyam, and the title of his talk is "Derivatives and Securities: The Impact of the New Legislation in the US and Beyond".
There is no question that the current legislation, pending before the US Congress and likely to be finalised by the end of June, will have a major impact on global financial markets in the years to come. This session will explore two major areas of the legislation, which have attracted extensive public debate: derivatives and securitisation. The key aspects of the proposed legislation will be discussed in detail, and some thoughts on the likely evolution of financial institutions, markets, and instruments in the future will be offered, specifically as they relate to the Asian financial industry and experience. If time permits, Professor Subrahmanyam would also be happy to discuss and take questions on financial market liquidity and its impact on the pricing of illiquid assets such as corporate bonds and equities.
