The report found that “between April 2008 and April 2012, the average daily UK trading volume in NDFs in the four BRIC currencies – Brazilian real (BRL), Russian ruble (RUB), Indian rupee (INR) and Chinese renminbi (CNY) – increased by almost 70% to almost USD 20bn. While NDF contracts account for only about 2% of volume in the London FX market as of April 2012, their growth in the last four years has by far outstripped the growth of other FX transactions.”
Over 180 professionals will be attending the event, speakers include; Chris Cruden of Insch Capital Management, Jon Vollemaere of LetsTalkFX as well as other notable figures.
