Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing Limited Chairman Ronald Arculli certainly caught the media’s attention after speaking at the recent Bloomberg LINK China Conference in Hong Kong where more than 200 economists, investors, and academics gathered to discuss China’s economy. (Bloomberg LINK produces invitation-only, in-person gatherings around the world that focus on financial topics across a variety of industries.)

During Mr. Arculli’s panel, he discussed investing in Hong Kong and also looked at the rate of IPO’s at the Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing, saying it has a “strong” pipeline of more than 100 applications.

Other topics discussed at the event included China’s balance of growth and inflation, the yuan’s march to convertibility, the emerging dim-sum bond market, and the new leadership at the helm of China’s financial regulatory bodies. Speakers also bet on the next hot spots in the country’s real estate market and examined investment opportunities as China’s appetite for commodities grows.

Key speakers at the event included Ronnie Chan, Hang Lung Group Limited & Hang Lung Properties Limited Chairman; Paul Mackel, HSBC Managing Director and Head of Asian Currency Research; and Steve Wang, BOCI Executive Director and Head of Fixed-Income Research.
