No Holds Barred:  The China Tech Stories You Haven't Heard 

 

  • Summary:  A lot of what you hear about Chinese internet companies comes from sell side analysts, VCs, entrepreneurs, and tech-journalist-cum-spin-doctors, all of whom have a vested interested in mischaracterizing the truth.

    So we've invited out own TechBuzz China podcaster Rui Ma as a guest on our next SupChina Direct con call for a frank view of the Chinese internet landscape from someone who lives ad breathes it, but does not draw her paycheck from it. Some of the questions we'll tackle:

    • Has Didi Chuxing overreached, and due to be exposed as swimming naked when the economic tide recedes?

    • What to make of Pinduoduo -- viable business or the last frothiness of China's latest tech boom?

    • Which biotech companies are people talking about in Beijing?

    • Tencent: where to from here?

    • Is Luckin Coffee just a giant pyramid scheme?
       

  • Who:  Rui Ma has been a force in the China tech and venture scene for years since she led 500 Startups China business from 2013 to 2016. More recently she has been hosting her podcast, TechBuzz China, and has recently formed a digital wellbeing business called MindHero.

The Forever Trade War:  What is Beijing's Next Move?

 

  • Summary:  While the world has been calling it a "trade war", the reality is probably that recent dynamics are the "new normal" in US-China relations — and indeed, China's relationship with the entire world.

    While much of the media focuses on what Donald Trump and the US congress might do next — we will spend an hour with one of the foremost experts in China's political and economic systems to consider what China might do both in response to and/or independent of the US.

     

  • Who:  Stephen Samuel Roach is an American economist and serves as senior fellow at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and a senior lecturer at Yale School of Management. He was formerly chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia and chief economist at Morgan Stanley, the New York-based investment bank.

What the MSCI China Re-balancing Means for Global Markets 

 

  • Summary:  The MSCI indexes are the standard bearer for global benchmarking across all markets and opportunity sets. Beginning in May 2019 and continuing throughout the following quarters, the MSCI indexes are set to drastically increase the weighting of China in their indexes -- from 5% to 20%. This will have immediate and long-term impact on MSCI index movements, and by extension any fund that in any way is marked to or otherwise affected by MSCI index movements.
     

  • Who:  Miranda Carr is a macro strategist at Haitong Securities, one of mainland China's premier brokerage houses.
