Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner shouldn’t be ruled out as a candidate for the next Federal Reserve chairman, according to delegates at a big U.S. hedge fund event in Singapore.
Ben Bernanke’s term as chairman of the U.S.central bank ends in January and President Barack Obama is expected to announce his nomination for the next Fed chief soon.
Delegates at the Skybridge Alternatives(SALT) Conference believed Geithner at the Fed would mean more accommodative and pro-stimulus measures from the central bank.
