    Business and Market Discussion

    Hong Kong Financial Secretary Paul Chan announced yesterday a budget to stabilise the economy, containing HK$120bn of counter cyclical measures. But the level of sweeteners at HK$80 billion this year, is 33% lower than last year’s HK$120 billion. The budget deficit is forecast to be a record HK$257.6 billion this year. That’s less than the government’s previous forecast of HK$300bn.

    In a budget of halves, there were several familiar measures, but at half last year’s level. The salaries tax and profits tax waiver for the coming year was halved from HK$20,000 last year to HK$10,000 this year. And the handouts to the needy were also halved, with people getting an extra half a month’s worth of welfare, old-age, and disability allowances, instead of a full month as before. Last year’s cash handout of HK$10,000 was replaced with HK$5,000 worth of electronic spending vouchers.
    Shares in Hong Kong plunged after financial secretary Paul Chan increased stamp duty from 0.1 to 0.13%. It’s the first time stamp duty in the city has been increased for almost 30 years. The Hang Seng Index tumbled 914 points or 3% to end the day at 29,718, its biggest fall in 9 months. Shares of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing fell as much as 12.3% before later trimming losses to 8.8% but still its biggest drop since 2015.
    On today’s Money Talk, reviewing the 2021-22 budget is personal wealth advisor, Enzio von Pfeil, Kenneth Wong, Tax Partner at PwC Hong Kong and Samuel Faveur, Chief Executive Officer of Mandarin Capital.

    Personal Wealth Advisor, Enzio von Pfeil, thinks that the measures contained in Hong Kong’s 2021-22 budget are "band-aids" but not a real cure for an economy affected by the pandemic.


    Samuel Faveur Chief Executive Officer at Mandarin Capital laments that the budget is not efficient enough as the measures introduced lean towards corporates and is rather weak on the social aspect.


    Kenneth Wong, Tax Partner at PwC Hong Kong thinks that the new unemployment loan scheme is unlikely to work and believes that more follow up plans and execution detail will be needed.

    Business and Market Discussion / US Presidential elections

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    The global death toll from Covid-19 has surpassed 1 million according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University. Fatalities in the USA, India and Brazil account for more than half of that total.


    US consumer confidence rebounded more than expected in September. The Conference Board’s consumer confidence index jumped to 101.8, up from an upwardly revised 86.6 last month as Americans became more confident about their financial outlook and jobs prospects.

    Bankruptcies and store closings in the US retail sector reached a record in the first half of 2020. More than 29 retailers have sought bankruptcy protection in 2020 and retailers have closed more than 10,000 stores across the US.

    HKEX Chief Executive Charles Li, who had previously said he will not seek reappointment when his current contract ends in October 2021, will now retire early from his role as CEO, on 31 December. Mr Li will take up the role of Senior Advisor to the Board for 6 months from 1 January. Current HKEX Chief Operating Officer Calvin Tai has been appointed as Interim Chief Executive, effective 1 January 2021.

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by David Roche of Independent Strategy, Mark Michelson from IMA Asia and RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood.

    David Roche, CEO and Global Strategist at Independent Strategy says that a Biden victory would mean more cooperation between the US and Europe to counter China.

    Mark Michelson, Chairman of the Asia CEO Forum at IMA Asia highlights that the early voting surge in the US means that many Americans have already chosen their candidate, making this year's presidential debates less decisive.

    RTHK's International Economics Correspondent Barry Wood expects further relief measures to be unveiled before the mid-October recess.
