Manuel Moreno Capa (Director of GESTORES) | China already has its Nasdaq, its stock market for technology companies – the STAR index. Well, with certain differences: only 25 companies are listed on it, compared to the 3,000 listed on the Nasdaq. But it does not matter. The wind from the East blows hard and will drive technology funds, high risk products, but also with elevated potential returns in the medium and long term.
For both China and the US, government policy is more important than monetary policy right now. “Interesting that for China, many of its perceived problems are being dealt with through greater use of technology”, explains Mark Tinker, Head of Framlington Equities Asia at AXA IM.
