True Partner Capital USA manager speaker
Tobias Hekster, Co-CIO of True Partner Capital USA in Chicago, will be a speaker again at the 10th Global Volatility Summit in March 2019.
The panel promises to be interesting given how eventful 2018 was in the volatility markets. With past December both dragging most global indices into negative territory for the year, it also showed a strong recovery at the very end. This leaves the discussion open as to whether the storm has mostly passed, or that we are just at the beginning of prolonged market turmoil.

Starting at IMC in 1998 as a pit trader in Amsterdam, Tobias has established the off-floor arbitrage desk, headed the Chicago office in the transition from floor trading to electronic trading and set up the Asian volatility arbitrage desk in Hong Kong.
Tobias holds an MSc in Economics and has taught as an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and as an Adjunct Professor of Financial Practice at National Taiwan University.
During the years he worked at the Hong Kong office of True Partner, he has been interviewed by Bloomberg TV regularly to discuss geopolitical events and it’s implications on volatility in Asia.
