Date: Friday May 15th at 9 am to 10 am Key speaker:Edward Lee, Chief Economist, Standard Chartered, ASEAN and South Asia Questions: Please forward
This crisis is unlike others. No one is insulated. From just China and Asia, the coronavirus outbreak has spread to major economies including the United States and euro area. Necessary containment measures are adding to the economic depression. While infection rates may appear to be peaking, risk of recurrence remains. We have significantly downgraded our global growth outlook, but downside risks predominate. Financial markets have moved from a vol shock to a VAR shock and now back to a vol shock. Are we back to market normalcy or is this just a mirage? Join us for an interactive discussion.
Edward leads the ASEAN and South Asia economic research team, with economists based in India, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore. He provides macroeconomic analysis and on-the-ground views on major economic issues in the region. He is often featured in media and has regular interactions with policy makers in the region. Edward was a founding member of the Standard Chartered Rates Strategy team and was previously Head of Asian Rates Strategy. Edward holds an Honours degree in chemical engineering from the National University of Singapore
