Clean energy

The stage is set for the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow between October 31-November 12, with key nations - including the U.S., Canada and South Korea - announcing new climate commitments. Even as the Paris Agreement targets seem to be on track, the Reuters Global Markets Forum discusses climate goals, green energy objectives, digital transformation and sustainability, for both countries and companies, with perspectives from industry leaders, policymakers and corporates, on how the promises made will be met both logistically and financially.

The great exit

A year-long investigation into allegations of collusion and manipulation by global currency traders is set to come to a head on Wednesday, with Britain's financial regulator and six big banks expected to agree a settlement involving around 1.5 billion ($2.38 billion) in fines. The settlement comes amid a revival of long-dormant volatility on the foreign exchanges, where a steady rise of U.S. dollar this year has depressed oil prices and the currencies of many commodity exporters such as Russia's rouble, Brazil's real and Nigeria's naira - setting the scene for more turbulence on world financial markets in 2015.

With a shaky global recovery from COVID-19 due to new variants and central banks trimming relief measures, uncertainty remains over inflation, geopolitics and a host of other factors. As investors eye new themes to trade on, the Reuters Global Markets Forum hosts a two-week line-up of global fund managers to discuss their cross-asset market outlooks for the rest of the year and into 2022.

COVID-19 impact on markets

As the world begins to emerge from the COVID-19 crisis, markets are at a record high and the global economy is expected to rebound, albeit slower than expected due to new coronavirus variants. The Global Markets Forum brings members special insights and knowledge on the financial implications of the pandemic. Together with industry experts and peers, we debate all the pressing issues, brainstorm our own strategies and share valuable takeaways to help you create an informed opinion on the future of the markets.



GMF LiveChat with Raoul Pal

Raoul Pal, co-founder and CEO at the Real Vision Group, joined the Global Markets Forum on Tuesday to discuss if U.S.-based Coinbase Global Inc's listing, which valued the exchange at around $86 billion, marks the latest step in crypto assets' march to the mainstream, whether long-term skeptics will finally turn followers, and how far we are from a stable environment for crypto assets.
