Rani Jarkas: Hong Kong will continue to be a competitive center of international finance

Chinese President Xi Jinping has arrived in Hong Kong to embark on a three-day trip to attend a ceremony marking the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to China. Xi also will attend the inauguration of the fifth administration of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

“President Xi’s visit to the SAR at this important moment to attend the celebration activities and the inauguration ceremony fully shows the importance that the central authorities attach to and their support for Hong Kong,” Leung Chun-ying, chief executive of Hong Kong, said.

With China continuously strengthening itself on the global economic and political stage, Zhang Xiaoming, the SAR Liaison Office director, commented Hong Kong will benefit from the country’s three major development initiatives: the Belt and Road Initiative, the internationalization of the renminbi, and the building of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Rani Jarkas, Chairman of Cedrus Investments, a global boutique investment firm headquartered in Hong Kong, said, “Over the past 20 years, with the support of the central government, Hong Kong SAR has made progress in various areas. Hong Kong has remained and will continue to be a center of international finance, shipping and trade, and has been recognized as the world’s freest economy and most competitive region.”

Rani Jarkas: The Belt and Road Initiative: The Biggest Economic Cooperation Project Today

In mid-May, Chinese President Xi Jinping welcomed the world leaders attending the Belt and Road Forum (BRF) for International Cooperation in Beijing. The forum is a major boost and accelerator for synergies along the roads.

International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde commented on the BRF that “The Belt and Road Initiative is about connecting cultures, communities, economies, and people, and about adding new economic flavors by creating infrastructure projects that are based on 21st-century expertise and governance standards.”

The Belt and Road Initiative is a pioneering, international framework based on an “open platform concept,” which does not need a leader, but a curator who acts as a catalyst and coordinator for ensuring win-win outcomes, said Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum.

Rani Jarkas, Chairman of Cedrus Investments, an experienced investor in the region under Belt and Road Initiative, said, “The Belt and Road Initiative is meant to help developing countries to create more opportunities for growth and improve the lives of people. The breadth of this initiative, the high level of participation and its strategic dimensions, highlight its capacity to become the biggest economic cooperation project in place in this century.”

Rani Jarkas: China A shares will be included in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index

MSCI Inc. (NYSE: MSCI) announced on June 20, 2017 that beginning in June 2018, it will include China A shares in the MSCI Emerging Market Index and the MSCI ACWI Index.

The MSCI Emerging Markets Index is one of the world’s most widely recognized measurements for stock performance in emerging markets. The index tracks the performance of more than 800 stocks in 23 economies, more than 70 percent of which are in Asia.

About $1.7 trillion in global assets are benchmarked to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, and overseas investors will start buying A shares when they are included in the index. That in turn would cause the A-share markets to see a further strong rise, Shanghai-based news website thepaper.cn reported on last Monday.

Rani Jarkas, Chairman of Cedrus Investments, a global boutique investment firm with offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, said, “MSCI’s decision to include A shares in its index shows that China’s economy is growing stably, and has a lot of potential. As more international capital flows in, the A-share markets will no longer be dominated by local investors and financial products in mainland stock markets will become more diversified.”
