One More Thing: It’s party time for the financial set again

 

’Tis definitely the season for financial industry jamborees, what with Goodbody’s aviation conference earlier this month, the bit of craic at HedgeCraic during the week and the Business & Finance restructuring conference on Wednesday.

Next Tuesday, the Convention Centre is the venue for another annual think-in, this time organised by Davy stockbrokers, the biggest of the Irish broking houses.

The Politics, Markets and the Global Economy gig will look forward to what we can expect from the markets in 2014. More pain, I reckon.

Among the speakers this year is David Blanchflower, an academic and former member of the interest rate-setting committee of the Bank of England during the height of the recent financial crisis.

Headline act
The headline act, however, is Dr Philippa Malmgren, the co-founder of Principalis Asset Management.

Malmgren is best known as a former economic advisor to president George W Bush.

She is also a highly regarded economics thinker, although her 2011 prediction that Germany would leave the euro – she reckoned it had even secretly started printing deutschmarks – probably won’t make it onto her “Best Of” album.

So what is the next knees up planned for our financial industry?

A traders’ Electric Picnic? Summer’s over, guys. It’s about time you all got back to your desks and did some real work.
