WILL ASIA EMERGE FROM THE CRISIS FIRST?
Web Conference | Thu, May 7, 2020 | 09:30am CEST
While the coronavirus has Europe and the USA firmly in its grip, China is seeking its way back to normality. How fast will the world’s most populous country manage to boost its economy again? Will the global pandemic in the end just be a severe but short-term disruption of the capital markets? Or will it have long-term, drastic impact on the economic development of China and Asia?
Our web conference – exclusively for professional investors – offers bundled know-how and profound insights into the Asian and Chinese capital markets. You will hear facts, analyses and opinions from three proven experts from international investment companies.
Start and welcome
Donald Amstad, Head of Investments Specialists APAC, Aberdeen Standard Investments
COVID-19 started out as a problem for just China. Now it’s a problem for the whole world. It’s ironic that Chinese financial markets have been impacted least. Why is this? Is China the new safe haven of today?
Stephen Jen, CEO and Co-CIO, Eurizon SLJ Capital Limited
In the persistent low (negative) interest rate environment the opportunity offered by Chinese onshore bonds is just too good to be ignored. For European investors, the development of the renminbi is crucial. What is the outlook for the Chinese currency? What are the pros and cons of Chinese bonds?
Ken Wong, Client Portfolio Manager, Eastspring Investments
While the global financial markets collapsed, China A shares performed significantly better than most other stock markets. Will the Chinese economy return to old growth after the coronavirus crisis? How attractive are Chinese A-shares as an investment?
