A new and troubling question is suddenly looming for Beijing: will the Trump administration abuse the power of the US dollar to hurt China following Beijing’s plan to impose a new national security law in Hong Kong?While the probability remains very low that China will be treated like Russia or Iran, and US President Donald Trump has not mentioned sanctions against Hong Kong or Chinese financial institutions, the risk of a financial war – including being cut off from the US dollar system – is...
Have we finally reached the turning point where the world economy starts staging a comeback? With coronavirus lockdowns easing in many countries, businesses slowly getting back to work and the world hopeful of a return to normality soon, it’s no surprise that stock markets have been in a more positive mood just lately.But is it just a chimera of recovery and are investors simply jumping the gun? After all, there are precious few signs of recovery evident in any of the real economy numbers…

A prime Hong Kong property put on the market by the US government has hardly generated any excitement among the city’s developers, as they weigh the sector’s prospects amid a difficult economic and political climate, while market observers expect the sale may not live up to its top billing.Last Saturday, the US government invited tenders for six multi-storey mansions at 37 Shouson Hill Road with stunning views of Deep Water Bay.
Hong Kong’s business community, backed by some of its famous billionaires, is upbeat on the benefits of a national security law for the city, according to an industry survey, while expressing concerns about foreign sanctions on their operations.About 61 per cent of the respondents said the law will either have a positive or no impact at all on their businesses over the long term, according to the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce.

For nearly 60 years, export-led development strategies have propelled economic growth throughout the Asia-Pacific. The famous “four tigers” – South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore – rapidly sped up industrialisation by exporting goods in which they had a comparative advantage, moving quickly up the economic development ladder. Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and others later did the same.In theory, export-led growth works like this: a country’s economy becomes more efficient by shifting the…

A former Singapore police officer, Derrick Tan readily admits he is not a tech-savvy guy.The Bank of Singapore’s Hong Kong chief executive previously relied on a gaggle of information technology staff to arrange conference calls and set up video conferences.But, the coronavirus pandemic has forced Tan – and his staff of private bankers – to radically adjust how they go about their business and interact with their clients, who already expect a high level of service.
Chinese internet company NetEase aims to raise between HK$21.6 billion and HK$24.2 billion (US$2.8 billion and US$3.1 billion) in fresh capital via a secondary listing in Hong Kong, the video games giant said on Monday, making it one of the largest equity deals so far this year.The offering is expected to be one of several major secondary listings expected in the Hong Kong stock exchange this year, as rising tensions between the US and China have led Washington to question whether Chinese...

Bankers and other financial services workers in Hong Kong are taking pay cuts of as much as 20 per cent and seeing even sharper hits to their annual bonuses as the city navigates a historic economic downturn spawned by months of anti-government street protests and the coronavirus pandemic, according to headhunters.The pay cuts come amid rising concerns about Hong Kong’s future as an international financial centre and as global lenders slash expenses and slow hiring to navigate a downturn that...
China’s most important political event of the year told investors to expect three key things: stimulus will be put on a diet, stock volatility following China’s move to tighten its control over Hong Kong will offer buying opportunities, and helpful breaks are coming for targeted sectors such as electric vehicles, medical equipment and the 5G network.Of the three, analysts predict the surprise move at the National People’s Congress meeting that ended last week to impose a highly controversial...
If a lack of maintenance undermines a structure’s foundations, the damage can be hidden by a bigger disaster such as an earthquake. Similarly, a sudden heart attack may disguise the patient’s underlying conditions or the poor medical treatment they have received. These are simple analogies for what is happening to the global economy and the international financial system. The economy is in deep recession and the financial system is traumatised, but few are asking why. The assumption is that it…
More Chinese banks are issuing perpetual bonds as a way to replenish capital and support their loan growth, with regulatory incentives spurring 569.6 billion yuan (US$79.6 billion) in total issuance last year for one of the riskiest types of bank debt.But with more unlisted city and rural lenders also issuing perpetual bonds this year, analysts say investors are facing higher risk issuers with weaker governance.
