Repositioning for global economic recovery

  • In light of higher inflation expectations and a global economic recovery, the Fund has been adding more to recovery plays
    • Industrials
    • Chinese shipping companies have taken up a lot of market share globally, as shipping companies from other countries still face challenges in exporting goods to the U.S. due to less quality control of COVID-19
    • Meanwhile, manufacturers in China continue to benefit from strong exports, especially from the U.S., where consumption remains strong

    • Financials
    • Concerns about liquidity tightening should benefit financials. Chinese banks should have higher pricing power and improved asset quality
    • China's 10-year bond yield is expected to stay above 3%, which is historically a key positive factor to support net-interest margin and earnings re-rating for banks. Rising bond yield is also a driver of investment returns of insurance companies

    • Consumption
    • Sportswear players are benefiting from stronger domestic brand recognition, driven by the "China Pride" phenomenon
    • Under the consumption upgrade in China, players that are going into luxury design and fashion are also expected to benefit as people are willing to pay more to get premium items and have a better lifestyle

    • Advanced technology hardware
    • China's emphasis on self-sufficiency and industrial improvments will be driven by innovation, encouraging new infrastructure and increasing capital expenditure
    • The Internet of Things presents numerous avenues of growth, meaning plenty of sustainable earnings headroom for respective value chains
