                                               keynote speaker on "From CSRC's Policing
                                               of Everbright Securities to SAFE's Green
                                               Lighting of Foreign Hedge Funds Raising
                                               Yuan for Overseas Investment." China
Leaders Forum 2013 (http://www.chinaleadersforum.com), in its fifth edition, is gearing up
to provide the information practitioners are looking for in an open and unbiased
environment, highly conducive to the most efficient and effective networking.

Less than a month after trading incidents generated by Everbright Securities, China's
State Administration of Foreign Exchange has taken a step forward in its plan to open up
its capital account and internationalize its currency with a trial program that allows foreign
hedge funds to raise money denominated in yuan for overseas investment. Each of six
hedge funds will be allowed to raise up to $50 million worth of yuan in China, according to
people familiar with the situation.

While the trial program is minuscule in comparison with a similar program set up in 2006
for domestic investors, Mr. Perez will focus on the significance as a move toward full
convertibility of the Chinese currency, which the country's leadership has pledged as part
of efforts to move away from a command economy. China's regulators approved the pilot-
program launch in Shanghai, with six firms-Oaktree Capital Management, Och-Ziff Capital
Management Group, Winton Capital Management, Man Group, Citadel and Canyon
Partners-getting the go-ahead.

Mr. Perez (http://www.mredgarperez.com) is widely regarded as the preeminent global
