Round 1: Guru of Commodity Trading Shares His Secret Scroll

On Nov.11th, SAIF’s EMBA team and China Academy of Financial Research (CAFR) composed together the 1st chapter of a high-end salon series at Portman Ritz-Carlton in Shanghai. Its first round, named as Strategy and Prospects of Commodity Trading --- China and new market conditions, has Willem Kooyker, the president and founder of Blenheim Capital Management, to deliver a keynote speech.  His affiliated Blenheim Investment is a hedge fund which is dealing with commodity trading, and is listed by Barron’s Weekly in 2008 the 24th among the global hedge funds, with highest ROI up to 114%.

After the speech, a decent face-to-face talk was held between Kooyker and the audience. Another two distinguished guests --- Dr.Xu Ling, president of Haitong Futures, and Dr.Wu Jian, president of CITICNewedge Futures, also presented the discussion and shared their expertise in corporate governance and strategic management. The number of participants are more than expected --- nearly 80 executives of local banks, security firms, futures firms etc, came all the way to the salon. A number of them eventually got to know SAIF’s EMBA program and put forward a lot of queries about its application.

The EMBA-CAFR Salon program is a series of high-end dialogue which integrates keynote speeches with dialogue section; therefore, it establishes a platform for EMBA students to communicate with worldwide gurus in the finance field. 

SAIF Finance EMBA is an innovative program for executives of Chinese financial institutions, other corporate financial executives and government officials, particularly those of financial regulatory bodies. The program will broaden participants’ perspective with up-to-date theories and case studies, cutting-edge methodologies and techniques of finance, as well as the state-of-the-art management and leadership essentials. Meanwhile, with the integration of high-end industrial, political and academic resources, the program will help to build a pluralistic and interactive platform and shoulder the mission to become the Whampoa Military Academy (the famous cradle for Chinese generals) in financial area.
