GPS Capital Markets To Speak On Global Volatility And Risk Management
GPS Capital Markets, a provider of corporate foreign exchange services, today announced that managing partner and co-founder, Al Manbeian will present at multiple regional conferences for the Association of Financial Professionals (AFP).
At each conference, Manbeian will present a one-hour session on ‘What is your Threshold for Pain? FX hedging Options in Volatile Times.’ In this time of global volatility, it is more important than ever to understand what a company’s appetite for risk is. Once a company’s risk profile has been established, an FX hedging program can be implemented that is aligned with the firm’s risk appetite. Attendees will also learn about different tools to help manage FX exposures and that the appropriateness of any one product depends upon the company’s appetite for risk.
Manbeian will present at the following shows:
- Texpo, April 5th, Fort Worth, TX
- SoCalEXPO 2011, May 6th, Anaheim, CA
- Windy City Summit, May 19th, Chicago, IL
- New York 2011 Cash Exchange, June 2, New York, NY
“Understanding your company’s risk appetite is such an important concept for any treasury department to know and evaluate,” said Al Manbeian, managing partner and founding member of GPS Capital Markets. “We are extremely honored that GPS was chosen to speak at these regional events on such an important topic and to help global businesses better manage their global exposure and conduct strategic FX transactions.”
