ALFI new podcasts: Leading Fund Representatives Give an Optimistic View of the Future

- Press releases

Listen how leaders of national funds associations describe the opportunities and challenges they will be facing in the near future in their respective markets.

Jose Carlos Doherty, CEO, Brazilian Financial and Capital Markets Association.

Brazil is now the 6th largest investment fund market in the world, José Carlos Doherty, CEO, Brazilian Financial and Capital Markets Association says. Around 60% of the portfolios are invested in bonds, and only 10% in equities.

The government’s succesful battle against inflation, which has lasted eight to ten years but resulted in a more stable economic environment, has meant that both managers and investors are are turning to alternative investments to get a higher return.

Investing abroad is one way to get these higher returns, Mr. Doherty says.

Peng Wah Choy, CEO, Harvest Global Investments Limited, Hong Kong

Peng Wah Choy, CEO, Harvest Global Investments Limited, Hong Kong, acknowledges that the past year has been an exciting year for the Chinese fund industry with the development of the RMB Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors program, but reveals that there is more to come. The planned Hong Kong – China mutual fund recognition will be a game changer for the investment fund industry, as it will allow domestic China funds to be sold in Hong Kong to international investors and Hong Kong domiciled funds to be sold in China to domestic investors.

“Hopefully, Luxembourg can be part of that whole recognition regime creating, what we would truly believe, a global investment fund passport”, Mr. Choy concludes.

Lieven Debruyne chairman of HKIFA (Hong Kong Investment Fund Association)

“Mutual fund investment in Hong Kong is up 40%”, Lieven Debruyne, chairman of HKIFA (Hong Kong Investment Fund Association) says.  However, according to Mr. Debruyne, the rush to buy mutual funds can’t disguise the fact that Hong Kong investors haven’t yet returned to equity funds and are still very risk averse. Mr. Debruyne also talks about his Association’s top priorities ; the negotiations between the regulators of mainland China and Hong Kong about mutual recognition and the internationlisation of the Renminbi.
