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 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 “The Age of Uncertainty:
Questions for the Future Finance”. We would like your active participation and support to make
this event more significant and meaningful.
