Ipreo to host Hong Kong capital markets event
Hong Kong – February 14, 2012 – Ipreo, a leading global provider of market intelligence and productivity software to both the capital markets and corporate investor relations professionals, announced they will be hosting a private industry networking event for capital markets professionals, including syndicate members from both Equity Capital Markets and Debt Capital Markets, on the evening of Friday, February the 24th in Hong Kong.
Anne Stevenson-Yang, Co-Founder & Research Director of Beijing-based independent issuer research firm J Capital Research, will talk about the hunt for high-value trades in the perilous Chinese environment of 2011-12. “China at the moment is like Wile E. Coyote after he’s run over the cliff: his legs keep moving but there’s sheer air below,” says Stevenson-Yang. “We’re looking at who will do well and badly when Coyote looks down and sees the canyon below.”
