Programme: 17:30 -19:00
In 2010, the global financial crisis spread from the banking sector to sovereign debt. As we enter 2011, the sovereign debt crisis and particularly the future of the Euro, are a key concern for investors and markets. This talk will ask:
- are the debt positions and fiscal plans of the UK and Euro nations sustainable?
- will the measures so far put in place be sufficient to avoid a sovereign default or debt restructure in 2011?
- even if default is avoided, can the Euro survive in its current form, will it break-up or will it evolve to greater fiscal union?
- what are the implications for economies and markets?
Steven Major is the Global Head of Fixed Income Research at HSBC and a leading industry commentator on the financial crisis. He will share his views on these and other issues at this highly topical open forum.
