Why China is More Than Just A Trade & Mid-Year Market Outlook with Brendan Ahern and Dr. Xiaolin Chen:
Tuesday, July 28th, 2020
11:00 am - 12:00 pm est

China has on average 10 days of strong performance each year that are impossible to predict and easy to miss with news frequently highlighting the tit-for-tat US-China trade agreement.

Recent positive news and financial highlights include:
  • A strong month for Asian equities in June with the rally continuing in July and growth names in consumer tech frequently leading in trade volume.
  • The June manufacturing and non-manufacturing PMIs both increased month-over-month and beat expectations.
  • China recently unveiled the Wealth Management Connect program which will link investments and financial services between Hong Kong and Mainland China.
  • Alibaba's Anti Financial, valued at over $200 billion, has announced plans for an IPO in Hong Kong.
  • During our Mid-Year Market Update Webinar update, Brendan Ahern and Dr. Xiaolin Chen will discuss why we believe a tidal wave of capital inflows is headed for China’s financial markets and why we believe China is not a trade and should be considered an integral part of a well-rounded portfolio.
