NEW YORK — One week after the U.S. elections, foreign exchange industry and government leaders will convene at Bloomberg’s FX12 Summit to examine how politics and regulation will shape the global financial markets. The event, featuring former U.S. Senator Chris Dodd, is planned for Wednesday, November 14th at Bloomberg’s New York headquarters.

The event will feature insightful discussions that will explore how social, political and regulatory factors will drive trends in the currency markets in 2013. A series of panel discussions about critical topics from the global economic crisis, to the impact of regulation and financial reform, will include Bart Chilton, Commissioner of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Richard Clarida, Global Strategic Advisor at PIMCO, Daniel Doctoroff, Chief Executive Officer and President of Bloomberg, Alan D. Schwartz, Chairman of Guggenheim Partners, Hal S. Scott, President and Director of the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation, Nemat Shafik, Deputy Manager Director at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and John R. Taylor, Chairman of FX Concepts.

“Given today’s economic and political uncertainty, dialogue among foreign exchange market, government and regulatory participants is critical to forge a clear path forward,” said Tod Van Name, Bloomberg’s Global Head of FX, Economics and Commodities. “Bloomberg is pleased to convene these leaders and facilitate this important exchange of ideas and insights.”

The FX Summit is part of a global series that Bloomberg hosts to examine current and future FX market trends. Attendance at FX12 is exclusive to Bloomberg clients and invited guests. The full agenda and speakers list is available online at
