The world has changed enormously in the last few weeks. Still unbelievable that most people around the whole world are sitting at home, working, taking care of their children, making the best of it.
It made me think of what I would normally have been doing around this time of the year: visiting many banks around the world and attending conferences. Not doing this really changed my agenda. Fortunately, the people that I normally meet with at banks and conferences are quite tech savvy and for them meeting over video is not the biggest challenge. Next to that, my carbon footprint has declined to very nice low levels.
So, in between all these daily video conferences I thought, let’s reach out to the people who I would have loved to meet and show them the presentation that I could have given on any of the conferences, via LinkedIn. For you to consume/digest whenever you like!
Even though treasury is not on top of most minds these days, global activity on foreign exchange hedging has grown substantially and it is not only video conferencing tools like Zoom being heavily used. The activity on our FX hedging platform has grown significantly now that dealing rooms have far less capacity for phone trading.
