09/02/2019 - Deposit Protection

We normally consider banks as a safe haven. But have you thought about what would happen if a bank got into financial difficulty and you couldn’t retrieve the money you placed there? It’s a worse case scenario but it’s happened before. To find out how our deposits are protected in financial institutions, Peter Lewis went to see Professor Michael Hui, Chairman of the Hong Kong Deposit Protection Board.

09/02/2019 - Valentine’s Day

According to a recent survey conducted by a credit card company, couples in Hong Kong spend around $2,200 celebrating Valentine’s Day, which is more than double the regional average. Our local listener Iker Wong is one of them and he told Jimmy Lam about how he will spend his money. Jimmy Lam went to see financial advisor Simon Lau for some advice.

09/02/2019 - China's Bond Markets

One of the fastest growing asset classes in the world is the Chinese bond market, as mainland regulators encourage companies to move out of the shadow banking system and use more traditional forms of fundraising. In addition interest rates have been falling on the mainland as the economy slow and the authorities enact stimulus programmes. This has led to Chinese bonds being one of the few asset classes that gave a positive return in 2018.

To understand more about the Chinese bond market, Peter Lewis went to see Hayden Briscoe, Head of Asia Pacific Fixed Income at UBS Asset Management.

10/02/2018 - Valentine’s Day

10/02/2018 - Understanding warrants

This week we are going to take a look at warrants. We’re not recommending whether or not you should invest in warrants as they are derivative instruments and therefore you need to determine whether they are suitable for your own personal financial situation and investment profile. Peter Lewis is joined by Dickie Wong, executive director of research at Kingston Securities to help you make an informed decision.
