  • Are Electronics and Automotive Manufacturing companies shifting their base from China to Vietnam?

    Vietnam has emerged as a favorable alternative production destination for the electronics and automotive industries. This is due to several factors: the country’s robust economic growth (+6.8% YoY in 2019, driven by increasing FDI), increase in imports (+10.5%) and exports (+7.3%), multiple free trade agreements, rise in industrial production, low raw material costs, and high availability of raw materials and suppliers.

  • Market reactions on Coronavirus, Is it overhyped?

    The outbreak of the deadly coronavirus in China has already started affecting various business sectors either directly or indirectly. As the death toll in the country climbs, China is forced to take preventive measures and focus its efforts on people’s health and safety. Increased leaves in factories, along with decreased travel and shopping, are already dragging a few sectors down. Will these effects lead to a global downturn or will they be a short-term panic attack? What will be the impact of this virus on the world economy? We attempt to answer these questions in this article.

  • The Looming Pension Fund Shortfall - Are Future Retirees at Risk?

    The major shift in demographics with increasing life expectancy is expected to create problems for future retirees, who are expected to outlive their savings. In economies where the population is aging rapidly, one of the key challenges is to provide financial security for the older population. Most economies concentrate their pension fund assets in conventional investments markets – equities and bonds – thereby, depending largely on markets that are volatile and dynamic. This warrants a more cautious and planned approach by fund managers entailing diversification of pension funds from low-risk, low-return to high-risk, high-return asset classes. Moreover, at an individual level, a more prudent approach is required in terms of planning investments and increasing savings.

  • The Cisco-BlackBerry Deal – 9 Months On, Who Gained More?

    On June 23, the cross-licensing deal between Cisco and BlackBerry was announced. The agreement was a no-brainer when one considered the current market position of BlackBerry, and how the Canadian technology giant wanted to make full use of its assets. However, the deal did raise a few eyebrows when one considered that it was only Cisco who would pay a licensing fee to BlackBerry, and not the other way around. With the deal now a quarter shy of being a year old, let’s understand who stood to gain more from the deal – Cisco or BlackBerry?

  • Multivariate Model - An Optimal Method for Valuing Football Clubs?

  • 2020 Stimulus Plans and Their Impact – Will These Be Enough?

    The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted supply chains globally and international trade, nearly shutting down the world economy. Looking at the current scenario, many renowned economists have predicted zero economic growth for 2020. Federal governments across nations are announcing unprecedented stimulus packages to deal with the downturn.

  • European Wealth Management - An Insatiable Appetite for Growth is Imminent

    While Europe boasts about USD 73 trillion (29%) of global wealth, just  USD 14 trillion of Europe’s gross wealth is currently managed under regulated open-ended funds. Although countries like  Germany, France, the UK and Italy comprise two-thirds of Europe’s wealth, smaller core countries such as Luxembourg and Switzerland reflect higher average wealth per adult, and hence, greater wealth management opportunities.

    This is especially true in Europe. 

  • Is yield curve inversion coming to Asia?

    The US yield curve inverted recently with the widely-tracked spread between 10- year and 2-year bond yields turning negative on August 14 for a brief period, sending the equities market sharply down (Dow fell 800 points, its biggest fall this year). Earlier, in May, the 10-year 3-month yield spread turned negative. The inverted yield curve (negative 10–2-year spread) has preceded economic recessions several times in the past. However, there is no accurate lead time for when the recession will hit following the inversion of the yield curve (studies indicate a range of 8 to 24 months with an average period of 22 months).
