Keynote Economic Address, European Pension Funds Fixed Income Forum, Milan 2015

  1. How China’s economic miracle could end in domino effects on global growth
  2. What will happen the day after the Fed raises interest rates?
  3. How effective is the ECB’s QE for European growth? 

The level of leverage swelling in the Chinese economy could lead to a lasting period of painful deleveraging, emitting global disinflation risk via a cheaper yuan, depressed commodity prices and slowing global trade growth.


That is according to Lena Komileva, the keynote speaker at Milan's Fixed Income Forum in October 2015.


In this video, Komileva also discusses the impact of a Fed interest rate hike on global markets and the real effectiveness of the ECB's quantitative easing (Citywire, 2015).
