SEB Private Banking hosted on Thursday 18 April an evening seminar in banking where Mr Sean Yokota, SEB’s new Head of Asia Strategy, shared the three major themes that in his opinion will dominate the next 6 to 12 months.[wzslider autoplay=”true”]Mr. Sean Yokota first spoke about the fast recovery in Asia and China and what danger signs to watch out for if this development was about to be derailed.
Secondly he briefed about the Japanese Yen and the problems it will foreseeable create domestically and in the rest of Asia as the currency continues to weaken even further.
Thirdly, he focused on Thailand’s surprisingly strong performance given the political turmoil in recent years.
The expert speaker of the evening was introduced by Mr. Fredrik Lager, General Manager, SEB Private Banking Singapore, who at first had a hard time pulling the crowd away from the delicious buffet and take their seats. But after the speech, the audience seemed more eager to ask questions to Mr. Yokota than get back to the buffet.
The seminar took place at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit and was attended by some fifty members of all the three Nordic Chambers of Commerce.
