Structural growth opportunities

      Consumption upgrade
    • Consumption growth is likely to speed up with the macro recovery ahead and consumers will continue to spend more on life style upgrades
    • In addition, the rising middle-class population, increasing household income and urbanization remain long-tern growth drivers
    • The growing preference for domestic over global brands is also a driver for the consumer sector, as seen in domestic sportswear names, which are gaining market share

    • Advanced technology hardware
    • Despite a weak macro backdrop, demand for data centers, high-performance computing, and artificial intelligence remains firm, supporting the demand for advanced-node semiconductor manufacturing
    • Leading semiconductor foundries with advanced-node manufacturing capabilities are expected to gain more market share
    • China's "self-sufficiency" plan also creates substantial business opportunities for some local technology leaders

    • Financials – wealth management
    • Wealth management services providers should benefit from retail investors'growing demand for professionally managed investment services, presenting long-term investment opportunities
    • The muted performance of the property market will encourage investors to diversify from property investment to financial assets over the long-term
    • Some leading retail banks and insurance companies are well positioned to capture this trend and to grow their scale over time
