“Is China the new safe haven?”

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?
