The Seoul International Finance Forum, commemorating its 20th anniversary since the beginning
with the foundation of the Financial News in 2000, is establishing as the best forum in Asia.
For the past two decades, not only the world’s best finance, economic experts and scholars,
but also high-ranking government officials attended this forum, faithfully playing a role as a barometer
that predicts the world economic trends and suggests the way forward for finance.
The Seoul International Finance Forum is confident that it has opened a horizon for sustainable growth
of the financial market by predicting a paradigm shift in domestic and overseas economy and finance.
Along the way the economic and financial market has gone through a cycle of growth and slowdown through rough times such as the global financial crisis. Every April, financial experts including the
scholars and the government have perceived such changes and found a way to cope at the Seoul International Finance Forum.
At this year’s forum that commemorates its 20th anniversary, Jim Rogers, chairman of Rogers
Holdings and Beeland Interests, Inc. and one of the world’s three most famous investors, will make
a keynote speech regarding “Global Paradigm Shifts and World Economy”.
Moreover, scholars and experts will focus on shifts in domestic and overseas financial markets.
The low economic growth and the downward trend in interest rates have become the norm,
and the US-China trade war is leading the global financial market to be in for a rough ride.
Under fluctuations in the financial market, domestic financial institutions are seeking to develop
a strategy for survival.
Especially this year, the government has undertaken an authorization procedure for the third or
fourth internet-only bank, and a new kind of service is expected to come out due to team-up of
prospective ICT enterprises and financial institutions at home and abroad. Even blockchain-based
financial transactions are taking a new turn.
Under the circumstances, at the 20th Seoul International Finance Forum, we intend to seek a correspondence strategy for financial upheaval together, with the title “Era of Uncertainty: Questions for
the Future Finance”. We would like your active participation and support to make this event
more significant and meaningful.
