About the event

China & HK Equity Markets: Poised for a Rebound in 2024?

The MSCI China Index and Hang Seng Index have risen 15.8% and 16.3% year-to-date as of 20 May 2024, most recently rallying on encouraging policy releases and the resultant sentiment improvement. Some positive news headlines, including the “Nine-Point Guideline” aimed at capital markets reform published by the State Council, China SWF Central Huijin Investment ramping up ETF purchases and the recent release of new property stimulus plans from Beijing, are luring investors to rotate into China and Hong Kong equity markets from high valuation markets, such as India and Japan.

A critical question for many investors is the sustainability of the positive turn. With the much anticipated Third Plenum slated for July 2024, and the US election in sight in November 2024, how should investors navigate the remainder of the year and strategically position their portfolios in the short and medium term amid these events?

Endowus, in collaboration with Hong Kong Securities and Investment Institute (HKSI Institute), warmly invites you to join an exclusive in-person discussion, on 12 June 2024 (Wed) from 6:30 to 8:30pm, with a panel of experts from Abrdn, Allianz Global Investors, and JP Morgan Asset Management on the outlook for China and Hong Kong equity markets from economic indicators, policy changes to market sentiments, and most importantly, the potential investment opportunities and implications to investors’ portfolios. The session will be moderated by Steffanie Yuen, Managing Director, Head of Hong Kong at Endowus.
