New chapter for Asia’s clean tech

Phil S. Lee, Head of Asia Pacific Research, Mirae Asset Global Investments

Phil Lee will discuss the Asia Clean Tech landscape. Asian companies are not known for clean tech innovation, but they are formidable manufacturers when it comes to scaling up for mass production. A global rollout of clean tech products like battery, solar modules, and wind turbines is expected over the next decade, and Asian clean tech companies are well-positioned to benefit. Phil will also discuss the 4G mobile internet revolution with many companies in India and ASEAN expected to emerge as global leaders compared to their peers in the developed countries.

Digital Infrastructure – making it all work

Mark Abssy, Head of Indexing, Tematica Research, a partner of HANetf

From the days of the 4 node ARPANET in the 1970s to today’s vast amount of web-connected devices, digital infrastructure has always been in the background. Increasingly, due to what we like to call the “Virtuous Circle”, Digital Infrastructure and Connectivity has been thrust into the spotlight. The companies that have been taking us into the future have been doing so for some time and the advent of 5G represents a huge global upgrade. The interesting thing is that even as these companies are benefiting from the current upgrade cycle this is a segment that serves a client base that is never going to say “I have enough bandwidth, please stop.” Join us to find out more about this exciting segment of technology.

10:35am - 11:05am GMT
