Book description

Controlling several billion dollars in financial assets, central bank reserve managers are a major force driving global markets.

Whatever they say and don’t say, moves markets and creates trends. Once established these can be rapidly adopted by a community increasingly under pressure to improve financial performance.

Trusted by reserve managers for more than a decade, HSBC Reserve Management Trends has been the only regular, practitioner-oriented publication to get the answers to questions that can pre-empt these trends. Use the 2015 edition to discover what reserve managers are thinking, what they’re doing and their hopes and fears for the future.

Discover the thoughts of the 72 reserve managers surveyed on crucial topics, including:

- The divergence in monetary policies between the US and Europe
- The implications of rising interest rates in the US
- Currency diversification
- The renminbi as a reserve currency
- The attractiveness of exchange traded funds (ETFs)
- Adding income to portfolios
- The use of external managers

With expert opinion and experience this trusted reference is a must have, especially for those presenting to their boards and governors.
