    Business and Market Discussion / Fed’s monetary policy decision

    The US Federal Reserve left interest rates on hold at the end of its two-day monetary policy meeting but said, “the committee is of a mind to raise the federal funds rate at the March meeting assuming that conditions are appropriate for doing so.” It would be the first increase since December 2018. The FOMC said it is preparing for “significantly reducing” asset holdings and the reduction would be “in a predictable manner” by adjusting how much of the proceeds would be reinvested and how much would be rolled off.

    The European Central Bank has warned European banks with significant Russian exposure to ready themselves for the imposition of international sanctions against Moscow if it invades Ukraine. ECB officials have asked for details of how the banks would handle different scenarios, such as a move to block Russian banks from accessing the Swift international payments system.
    China Evergrande’s offshore debt restructuring plans have been put in jeopardy, after Los Angeles-based Oaktree Capital seized a 2.2m sq ft Hong Kong plot known as “Project Castle”. The residential project, in Yuen Long, was reported to have a value of around US$1bn and was a key piece of collateral in a planned restructuring of Evergrande’s US$20bn of offshore debt. Oaktree seized the plot after Evergrande defaulted on a loan against which the US$158bn asset manager had security.

    Business and Market Discussion / View from Japan

    主持人:Peter Lewis

    The World Health Organization warned Monday that the Omicron variant poses very high global risk and is likely to spread. The WHO said the severity of illness from Omicron was still not known, adding there was “substantial uncertainty” over the variant’s ability to transmit, the severity of disease it causes and the effectiveness of vaccines.

    Japan will ban all foreign visitors from midnight tonight, in one of the world’s strongest responses to Omicron. Foreign tourists are already banned from visiting under previously introduced restrictions, but that ban will be extended to foreign businesspeople and students who were previously allowed to visit after quarantining for as little as three days. 
    Inflation in Germany has surged to its highest level since 1992. The harmonised index of consumer prices rose 6% in November from a year earlier, exceeding the expectations of most economists. Energy prices increased 22% from a year earlier, which helped to push overall goods prices up by 5.2%.
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Will Denyer at Gavekal and Samuel Faveur from Mandarin Capital. With a view from Japan is Tokyo-based journalist and author, William Pesek.
