Fed Governor and Treasury Under Secretary Lead Roster of Top Level Speakers at First Annual Tuck Global Capital Markets Conference
The Center for International Business at Tuck held its first annual Tuck Global Capital Markets Conference on February 15. "The leadership here at the Tuck School was prescient, even clairvoyant, in scheduling a conference on global capital markets at this time--the timing could not be better," said David McCormick, under secretary for international affairs for the U.S. Department of the Treasury, in his address on open investment and American prosperity. The Keynote Address was delivered by Frederic Mishkin, Member of the Board of Governors for the Federal Reserve. Experts such as Gordon Dyal D'83 T'87, Head of Global M&A at Goldman, Sachs, and Robert Leary, Chairman & CEO of ING Investment Management Americas, discussed issues ranging from competition among global financial centers to the rise of sovereign wealth funds. Senior financial services professionals from across the United States attended the conference which was covered by over 35 news outlets.
