Amy Cho, Schroders CEO Hong Kong and Head of Distribution Asia-Pacific:

“It’s pleasing to see that investors in Hong Kong have become more attentive to their investments and taking a longer-term view on their finances. The unprecedented pandemic may have been a wakeup call to adjust their financial habits, and better equip themselves for the uncertainties and opportunities that lie ahead.

With the emergence of certain structural trends that are changing our way of life such as the growing popularity of online shopping and the transition to a low-carbon future, there are indeed opportunities in specific sectors.  However, rather than trying to focus on a sector or two, we believe focusing on structural themes and invest across the value chain would point to a broader opportunity set.   Cyclical factors could come into play, so taking a multi-thematic approach is expected to add value.

Whilst it could well be due to home-bias that Hong Kong investors are keen on Asia as an investment destination, we continue to be convinced of the prospects of the region.   Asia has leveraged on disruptions brought by the pandemic to accelerate the development of digital innovations critical to the post-pandemic era. These include remote communications, digital healthcare, mobile payments, e-commerce, and next-generation mobility. Related developments in the world’s two most populous nations – China and India – capture the dynamic of why we believe Asia will shape the 21st century. We do remind investors to consider diversification across equities and fixed income to help manage short-term volatility, and at the same time, to enjoy the benefit of income flow, and in turn, helps smoothen out the return pattern.”

In March 2021, Schroders commissioned an independent online survey of over 23,000 people who invest from 32 locations around the globe. This spanned countries across Europe, Asia, the Americas and more. This research defines people as those who will be investing at least €10,000 (or the equivalent) in the next 12 months and who have made changes to their investments within the last 10 years. Due to this threshold, Schroders acknowledges that this group and therefore the research findings are not representative of everyone’s experience of the pandemic.
