08:30 – 9:20AM

Risk Management Plays to Put a Lid on Bottom Line-Damaging Volatility

Speaker: Joe Manimbo, Senior Market Analyst for North America

What a year for the U.S. dollar, hot off its best performance in years. Please join Joe Manimbo, senior market analyst for Western Union Business Solutions, for a straightforward talk on the factors that have fueled the dollar’s nearly 20% gains, and how companies can rein in harmful market volatility by employing simple, efficient strategies to protect their bottom line. Market volatility has reached a fever pitch recently and many, including one of the world’s top central bankers and the IMF, expect it to stick around for a while yet. Big market drivers such as the health of America’s economy, the outlook for Fed interest rates, recovery in Europe and the Greek debt crisis are expected to keep currencies on an unpredictable path, threatening company cash flow.
