"Q4 2013 Investment Outlook" Seminar
As we reach mid-2013, the global markets are recovering amid lingering gloom, while the US and Japan stock markets bring new focal points onto the global stock markets. However, there are growing concerns over the Federal Reserve’s exit from the market, while Japan’s latest outline of economic reforms has failed to boost the market. All this has seen to the adjustments in the US and Japan stock markets in recent days. How should investors plan for the 4th quarter of 2013?

Prestige Banking will organise a seminar under the theme of “Q4 2013 Investment Opportunities”. Mr. Mark Wan, Chief Analyst at Hang Seng Investment Services Limited and Mr. Edward Lo, Vice President, Pictet Asset Management (Hong Kong) Limited will analyse the prospects of global financial markets and investment opportunities in the rest of 2013. It will help you keep abreast of the latest market news and grasp the investment opportunities.

Language : Cantonese

US and Japan Expected to Remain Focal Points
As a retrospective on the first half of 2013, there was a noted capital inflow from the bond market to the stock market. The US and Japan stock markets performed remarkably well and the European stock markets remained stable. The mainland China and Hong Kong stock markets, were hindered by the reforms in China and as a result, it led to a slow investment and performance below expectation. We have invited Ms. Bella Liang, Head of Investment Advisory Department, Hang Seng Bank, to share the investment prospect in the rest of 2013.

Have the Euro Debt and US Debt Crises Come to an End?
In the past few years, the euro debt crisis has constantly hit the sentiments of the global investment markets and investors. However, the situation took a major turn at the end of 2012. Does this stability spell the end of the euro debt crisis, or is it only the calm before the storm? We have invited Professor Stephen Wong, Guest Lecturer in Applied Macroeconomics of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, to share his analysis on prospects of the Europe’s economy and the investment opportunities.
