Notwithstanding the cautious sentiment towards Chinese equities over the past year, the fundamentals suggest that it would be increasingly difficult to ignore Chinese equities as its economic heft and importance continues to grow. In this article, our Senior Advisor Say Boon Lim analyzes the fundamentals of the Chinese economy and why it makes sense for global allocators to deploy Chinese equities for diversification and growth opportunities as the alternative would be a deliberate underweight decision for a large part of the world's GDP and the key driver for global productivity growth.

After lithium, coal and pork, polysilicon appears to be the next in line for potential government price interventions. In fact, polysilicon prices which have been on nine consecutive weeks of spiking spree, have reached 10-year high and the high prices have caused severe supply chain disruptions and suppressed domestic demand for solar panels – and in the process slow down the solar infrastructure build out in China. Such price intervention thus is envisaged to be a positive regulating event, that would shift the industry dynamics from upstream biased to more midstream and downstream actors, to rebalance the supply chain economics for long run sustainable growth of the industry ecosystem. In this article, we shall analyze this in greater details, and explain why despite the headline concerns it would be a positive event for the sector leaders including related constituents in the Premia ETFs, while the polysilicon market is expected to remain tight throughout the year due to persistent strong global demand and supply shortages.

Although a lot of unprecedented events happened in the past few years, financial market rallies have bolstered positive wealth effects and expanded the balance sheet for many investors – until recently. This year has been extremely challenging for even the most astute and well-researched investors. How do we make sense of so much uncertainty around inflation, geopolitical tension, recession, pandemic and more? Recently our Senior Advisor Dr. Jason Hsu, Chairman and CIO of Rayliant Global Advisors has published 7 Predictions for a Stagflation Economy, which raised some bold and perhaps uncomfortable possibilities that would be helpful for us all to reflect and prepare for. In this webinar, we shall discuss with Dr. Hsu live to decipher what might be the best way to weather the turbulent markets ahead, and while acknowledging diversification remains the free lunch in investing – what to diversify with?

As stocks around the world struggled in Q2 2022, China A shares produced a positive return, with the CSI 300 Index adding +6.2% for the quarter. This muted number nevertheless belies an action-packed three months, as investor sentiment toward mainland shares reached a low in April, with Shanghai and other major cities entering growth-stunting lockdowns amidst a rapid spread of COVID variants, only to recover sharply in May and June, as easing public health restrictions allowed Beijing to start ramping up a massive stimulus program intended to set the nation’s economy up for a strong second half leading into Q4’s National Congress. Here we offer some perspective on factor drivers in China’s market during the second quarter and comment on what might come next for Chinese stocks.

As the Developed Markets are weathering havoc from increasingly hawkish rate hike actions, ASEAN equities continue to retain relative calm and outperform DM as a regional expression of global value trade. While the trajectory for economic upgrades and earnings growth prospects remain intact, as DMs slide deeper into bear markets, some tweaking of the ASEAN trade – as a pure Emerging Market play – might achieve even better relative outperformance. In this article our Senior Advisor Say Boon Lim discussed drivers behind the outperformance of our Emerging ASEAN strategy against MSCI World Growth, and what investors with the flexibility for a spread trade might consider as the dynamics will likely remain in place for the rest of this year.

The American dilemma – recession by policy tightening or stagflation by policy avoidance. US GDP growth is running so low now that a recession is a very high probability event within 12 months as rates rise further. The drivers of that coming recession will be both inflation and higher rates: There can be many different variations of the balance between the pace of rate hikes and the pace of inflation. As US economic growth slows further in coming months, the US Federal Reserve will be tormented over the awful choice between the longer-term impact of inflation and the more immediate risk of recession. Yet in the end, if rate hikes do not crush US economic growth, inflation will eventually do the same, albeit with a greater lag. In this article, our Senior Advisor Say Boon Lim explains why bounces in US equities are likely to be “get out of jail” cards, with lower lows and lower highs the most likely outcome.

Chinese equities have been putting on breakouts above technical resistances just as Developed Markets are breaking down and US stocks have been collapsing into bear territory – and this does not seem coincidental. At opposite ends of the policy cycle. At the heart of this may be the policy tightening in the US, the looming consequent recession, and the search for alternatives to US assets – stocks, Treasuries and corporate credits. China’s recent commitments to fiscal and monetary stimulus are a welcome counterpoint to the falling monetary aggregates, surging rates and yields, and fiscal consolidation in the US. In this article, our Senior Advisor Say Boon Lim discussed the significance of onshore A-shares breaking above the technical resistance of 100-day moving average, as it has a tendency to be followed by quite substantial periods of gains.

Metaverse has rapidly become a buzzword in the recent year, with significant development in technologies, user base and content around the world. In fact, many of the related Metaverse themes have long been among the sub-sectors covered by the Premia FactSet Asia Innovative Technology Index that our namesake ETF tracks. With the FactSet RBICS technology, it is possible to overcome the constraints and sometimes mislabelling of traditional GICS sector definition, and identify the relevant themes at more granular level including for technology conglomerates with multi-disciplinary functions. As part of the ongoing review, the index was recently updated and renamed as Premia FactSet Asia Metaverse and Innovative Technology Index (AMIT) to better reflect the core elements and spirits of the strategy. In this article we discuss more about the rationales behind the update, and how the strategy captures the innovative technologies and metaverse related opportunities in Asia.

Vietnam market is now trading at an attractive valuation that has never been seen since 2013. The forward 12-month estimated PE of MSCI Vietnam Index (NTR) is only 11x, versus the 10-year average of 15.3x. The current bearish sentiment is largely driven by the anti-corruption campaign. Simultaneously the government is continuing to implement its Stock Market Restructuring Project, which attempts to create a transparent and competitive capital market environment equipped with a better legal system. These tough but important efforts will eventually help Vietnam become a stronger and sustainable market for foreign investors. Fundamentally, Vietnam economy has been doing well, with its GDP expanding 7.7% in Q2 and 5.1% in Q1 this year. The S&P Global Ratings recently raised its long-term sovereign credit rating on Vietnam to “BB” with a “stable” outlook. Investors who like bargain hunting should pay close attention to Premia MSCI Vietnam ETF (2804.HK), which invests in a basket of 28 leading Vietnamese companies.
