SIFMA is sponsoring a workshop today on China’s Bond Connect program, where yours truly will be moderating what I think will be a fascinating discussion on where the initiative stands in a changing interest rate (and currency) environment.  The workshop will be held at the SIFMA Conference Center, 120 Broadway, Floor 2.  The workshop website is here, and the program below:
