H.E Saif Al Shamshi is the assistant governor of the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates, with responsibilities over monetary policy and financial stability. He has been with the Central Bank of the UAE since 1981, and has held senior management roles in the banking operations, banking supervision and treasury departments. Prior to his 2011 appointment as assistant governor, he was the senior executive director of the central bank’s treasury department. He is a member of several committees both internationally and within the central bank itself, and his most recent publication was a 2013 BIS research paper on foreign exchange intervention by emerging market economies.

Hans Eichel is co-founder of the G20 & former Finance Minister of Germany. Is one of the longest serving finance ministers of post-war Germany. Eichel hosted the inaugural 1999 meeting of the G20 in Berlin when it was founded as a forum for dialogue for finance ministers and central bank chiefs. His time as chairman of the G20 set the agenda for reforming the international financial architecture and establishing a code of conduct on preventing financial crises. He also oversaw the introduction of the euro in Germany, and the difficult economic reforms of the Schroder-Eichel years are now vindicated by Germany's achievements as the best performing major Western economy since the 2008 financial crisis.
