M2 EQUITYBITES-April 24, 2015-AIA chairman joins global policy leaders at IMF, World Bank conference


AIA Group said its chairman and global investments advisor Shawn Baldwin joined central bankers, ministers of finance and development, private sector executives and academics at the International Money Fund and World Bank Group's invitation-only conference in Washington, DC.

The conference gathers business, government and policy leaders from around the world to discuss ways to boost economic growth and foster a sustainable, balanced and jobs-rich global economy. Topics ranged from growth beyond commodities, the benefits and drawbacks of low oil prices and global development to environmental economics and sustainability.

Baldwin joined industry heavyweights including IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde, former Federal Reserve Chairmen Paul Volcker and Ben Bernanke, and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.

Baldwin said, "As we go forward two key factors in monetary policy will drive capital markets: quantitative easing by the European Central Bank led by Mario Draghi, along with interest rate increases at the Federal Reserve Market by Chair Janet Yellen. Both are critical to the global economy as we shift into the new investing paradigm."

The AIA Group is an advisory and investment firm that specializes in the foreign exchange, derivatives and commodities markets. The IMF brings all the relevant players to the table with a focus on eradicating poverty and ensuring prosperity is shared.
