This year's Global Conference opens with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin interviewed by Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo. Their conversation will be followed by a panel discussion examining the surprise outcomes of elections around the world and their influence on markets. This opening plenary session will examine the key forces affecting the global capital markets and set the stage for this year's Global Conference. Potential questions:
- What are the themes that are poised to shape markets in 2017?
- What are the capital structure considerations investors should be making given the current state of the market?
- How has the financial services landscape evolved and what does the geopolitical environment mean for the regulatory environment? Which industry and geographic sectors or asset classes are most likely to benefit?
- How will human management change as technology plays a larger role in decision-making?
