What is happening in China?

We enjoyed a very thought provoking Unio Global Macro Council meeting earlier this week where the focus was geo-political risk. Fascinating insights were provided by Sir Sebastien Wood, KCMG, from Schroders and Chris Kushlis, T.Rowe Price who both provided refreshing insights on this topical subject.

This month's Global Macro Council (GMC) outlook considers investor concerns in China in three broad areas:

1. US/China relations and the risk of a conflict around Taiwan

2. Structural risks to China’s economy

3. The lack of urgency in economic policy making.

While risks are present, the council sees opportunities for a revival in Beijing. The Chinese market is under-priced and holds potential for significant returns if the right strategies are implemented.

About the Global Macro Council

With the investment climate and world economy challenged by high interest rates and inflation, to name but two risks, Unio Wealth Management has spent time and attention on upgrading our investment process for a changed world.

In terms of new governance, we have created the Global Macro Council (GMC) to analyse macroeconomic developments and explain the impact on investments. The GMC is a body of experts, strategists and client facing advisers that craft the Unio house view on the macroeconomic outlook. Meeting monthly, the Council produces the Global Macro Council Report.
