In the last two decades Shanghai has been one of the fastest developing cities in the world. Since 1992 Shanghai has recorded double-digit growth almost every year except during the global recession of 2008 and 2009. Soaring high above the city skyline, the Shanghai World Financial Center stands as a symbol of commerce and culture that speaks to the city’s emergence as a global capital and it was with this in mind that Timothy Enneking and Anatoliy Knyazev, partners in EXANTE Ltd, went to Shanghai to attend the Indexing and ETF Investments Conference on the 26th February 2013, a conference dedicated to providing the latest industry information whilst also providing deep analysis on industry hotspots.
The conference brought together many delegates from the various industries all over China who were looking for more transparent and more accessible ways of trading within the financial sphere. The event whilst acting as a networking forum allowed delegates to mingle and share ideas about their companies and ventures. EXANTE’s main focus was on finding new partners and to market EXANTE’s unique platform into the financial industry. As an agency prime broker, EXANTE hosts a multi-asset fund platform, which operates online via the internet. Not only can funds trade global markets, they can also market themselves and their strategies to all of EXANTE’s global customers.
