On 1 March 2016, SIM University's School of Business hosted an industry talk entitled Options/Futures Trading, Asset Management and Private Banking by Mr Jesper Moh, who is an investment funds specialist at the Wealth Management Division of UBS and has almost 20 years of experience in the financial services industry.Mr Moh remarked that financial markets have been involved in the creation and destruction of wealth since the beginning of a market-oriented economy. He shared his own observation of how one man's action led to the destruction of a renowned bank and how the wealth management industry seeks to protect and grow with its clients. Mr Moh also emphasised the importance of risk management in any type of investment and especially during the current volatile market conditions. During the question-and-answer session, our students raised many interesting topics for discussion such as the global oil price, Japan's negative interest rates, the devaluation of the renminbi, and career opportunities in the wealth management industry.
