Johnson has sought to draw a line under the so called party gate scandal after reiterating his apology the UK government will sell out fresh support for Britain struggling with a record squeeze on living standards today according to a Conservative Party official UK media is reporting that recently announced 200 pound energy loan the so called warm homes discount will now be converted into a

for triggering a global food crisis with its blockade before the war Ukraine accounted for almost half of the world's sunflower oil exports and 13% of corn exports corridors from Ukrainian ports on the Black Sea and the sea of azov will operate during an 11 hour window each day Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quicktake powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than a 120 countries This is Bloomberg Caroline Thank you so much Steven Those are a few of our top stories this morning Of course we are live throughout the morning on Bloomberg radio from Davos Bloomberg's francine lacquer with a host of guests We have heard from the ili cafe chairman Andrea illy talking about how difficult it is to pass on increases in prices to consumers the Rio tinto CEO Jacob Stause Holm also was speaking to francine LaCroix and now Anne Richards the fidelity CEO is speaking exclusively to Bloomberg's fascine LaCroix Let's go there now live Some of the concerns that we see out there And thank you for joining us I know you're always extremely thoughtful about the markets I don't know what it feels like from where you're sitting today Are you worried about the future Or are there glimmers of hope Well it's always good to hope We're never completely without hope but it's a pretty tough environment I think when you look at where we've come from and the extent of the correction that you've come from you definitely inequity markets have seen a fairly substantial de rating and probably that's pretty much run its course And now it's all about what the earnings patterns are from here and obviously what the central banks managed to do in terms of bringing inflation under control So are you expecting a lot more of a correction when it comes to some of the earnings that we install about margins and extremely difficult for certain parts of industries to pass on higher consumer inflation The risk of a recession has unquestionably gone up I'm not certain yet that all parts of the world are going to go into recession Markets are discounting mechanisms So they've discounted part of that but clearly if the backdrop of economic environment accelerates in a downward direction I think you could see more volatility markets So I don't think we're through this period yet But I think there is some hope that possibly we could be seeing the sort of peak of the bearishness but we're not quite through it yet So what happens in the next couple of quarters and how difficult is that to predict for an asset manager Does it change the way you work Look it's terribly difficult to predict I think as you know this kind of environment which is like a turning point in sentiment a turning point in the sort of economic backdrop really really difficult And of course we're coming into this from a very unusual cycle So we've had a compressed deep recession followed by the most extraordinary bounce back And then on top of that you've had these external supply shocks First of all on the oil price side and then of course with the second wave big wave of COVID in China with the sort of contraction of economic activity there and the sort of stumbling block that have been put in on the supply chain That has been sort of a double external shock which has once again put this huge amount of grit into the economic machinery That being said I think you're starting to see the Shanghai situation in particular improve which I think is a big tick And where we get to on the oil price the gas price I think is the next big thing that you sort of hang on But as I think so what do you do when you face into this I think diversification is extremely important in that We think probably that in terms of bond markets it will be credit spreads that take the strain rather than the bond market itself that if you like treasury So I think government bonds probably feel less volatile from here rather than credit But it is still quite a challenging environment And I think we've probably got another two quarters at least of volatility as we see the sort of economic backdrop gradually ease a little bit and then we'll be looking towards the fourth quarter maybe to see a little more clarity Do you clients and want exposure to China Interesting So we're still seeing quite positive sentiment on China notwithstanding the sort of more difficult backdrop that we've seen It's such an important and major part of the world economy and probably as the part of the world where you'll see economic activity resume more quickly And so we're definitely still seeing quite a lot of positive sentiment towards China particularly given the correction that you've seen quite a lot of market there We caught up at a dinner yesterday and he said I want to come on and talk about the F word and the table stopped me trying to be like food How should we look at food and food inflation food security Is this the biggest challenge of our times Yeah so one of the things that has been just both I think really constructive about the conversations this week is how the risk of a food crisis has gone right up the agenda and you've seen a tremendous amount of leaning in from all sorts of parts of both the political and if you like the corporate infrastructure to figure out how can we avert a major food crisis some good news overnight about maybe beginning to find a way where we might get some of the grain out of Ukraine and that is a really really important step in all of this We're not there yet But I think it's been one of those examples where actually getting people physically together talking constructively of course president zelensky challenged everybody on Monday Like you know you've got to get on top of those people And I think you've definitely seen some of those conversations progress So we're not out of the Woods yet on that but I think we have made real progress this week and actually figuring out what it is we need to do to make sure that food and the food chain does not get weaponized.

missiles while invading Ukraine That's according to CNN who noted this is the first time this type of missile has been knowingly used in combat This comes after the Kremlin claimed one of its new hypersonic missiles destroyed a Ukrainian weapon storage facility Video posted by the Russian defense ministry shows a missile slamming into a building followed by a massive explosion Moscow said the strike was carried out Friday and destroyed a large underground weapons storage site And the prime minister of Norway says four U.S. service members have been killed during a NATO training exercise Norwegian armed forces said the soldiers were aboard an Osprey aircraft assigned to a marine expeditionary force and were on a training mission in northern Norway on Friday There's no word yet on the identity of the four service members I'm Jim Forbes I'm Barry Rudolph your listening to masters and business on Bloomberg radio are extra special guests today is Darren Palmer He is the general manager of battery electric vehicles at Ford Let's talk a little bit about some of the things that we're looking at in the future You mentioned how proud you are of the price points that you've introduced cars like the Mach-E or the E transit or the one 50 lightning what do you think is going to happen going forward in terms of pricing Not a battery hybrid but a regenerative I guess P HEV hybrid the maverick was priced at pretty inexpensive $22,000 for a compact four door pickup truck How cheap can battery EVs get in the future Well today so the F one 50 lightning was being included incentive that's available is really in the range right now of gas from 50 Right in the heartland of where we sell most of them So I could argue that today we have one of the first vehicles that has reached parity with an equivalent truck And I'd say equivalent yet the electrics faster than any F one 50 we ever made more talk than any F one 50 ever made Quieter handles better et cetera et cetera than any F one 50 ever And it starts at the price of the gap So there's one segment where we've managed to achieve it That one is with the incentive So that's helped us helps it bring to bring it to more people We are working on other vehicles not announced yet to bring the vehicles to more people a lower cost vehicle I can't say anything more about it at the moment but that's one of our missions and part of this huge investments we're making in batteries is obviously supporting that because the biggest component by far is the battery And already I can say that a Mac E is a similar cost to run over 5 years as a Ford escape The total cost spent is the same as a Ford escape already So that is also supported by an incentive at the moment but that's amazing for those that wake up to see that now They're getting a huge bargain and the charging networks already reached 90,000 plus So they're available everywhere And there's hardly anyone there yet So you also have the network to yourself So AV ownership at the moment is just fantastic You'll also find the parking spot for many places right next to the entrance because that's where the electric spot is And they're half empty as well So when you drive the feel like a VIP So it's a really good time to get into them now But we do have plans to bring vehicles that are even lower cost And we are moving to more segments So the three rows are next one along where it will family car sides that is so popular in America So currently the Ford explorer which I think comes with a third row is available hybrid You mentioned you're looking to do a three row SUV Can we assume we're going to see an E explorer sometimes soon So yes we've announced that we're working on that one It's a three row in the explorer is indeed three row So we're working on that now But I would say it's the same segment as a three row explorer I wouldn't call it any explorer We intend to reinvent what these vehicles can be And again it will not be an explorer of an electric motor in it It will be a new vehicle that offers new experiences that are game changing and spi directional power and mega power for the F one 50 But something things that are designed to delight the customers in this segment with things they want in their daily lives I won't say more about it yet but it continues to be an incredible vehicle again So previously you said EV adoption is similar to the process that the iPhone had to go through any groundbreaking product requires a readjustment into your life Is that what you're seeing with EV adoption once people make it part of their routine it's no longer the electric car it just becomes the car Oh yes I mean universally when people make the switch no one goes back It's the only analogy and when I try to get across to people to use the whole moving to iPhone or smartphone from flip phone No one goes back And before people moved they didn't know that They thought they understood what an iPhone was and because it looks similar to similar to a phone But they don't realize what it really is And once they owned it then they suddenly switched they'll never go back and they told everyone they know Exactly the same The most misleading thing about EVs is they look like a car And therefore you think it's like the cars you've known all your life and it's nothing like that So you're more people we can get in there to feel it the more people it will convert quickly So let's talk about that You know a lot of people a few years ago were projecting 2040 20 35 It doesn't feel like it's going to take that long Where do you think the EV market is as percentage of new vehicle sales in 2025 or 2030 Yeah So if you think a free person who gets one will never go back that's pretty much the role Right Maybe you start thinking about how fast is that going to take Now it took ten years for the iPhone to get everywhere Right Now similar phones right So it took time for.

Cheung Kong center here where we are broadcasting and put up the peace banner for between China and Hong Kong given the turmoil that is happening here we'll get an update on that in just a minute but you know we're getting different comments coming from different leaders Carrie lam you know a week or so ago saying you know the protests are having a bigger impact on the economy the Asian financial crisis and then we have the financial secretary Paul Chand yesterday saying you know we're going to have two point four billion dollars in stimulus but it's not because of the protests what's going on and how damaging is it well it's certainly not a very positive for the for the Hong Kong economy I would be rather reluctant to say whether it's worse than the financial crisis at this point given back you know we had a great global recession in crisis but it's certainly not a good outlook for their local economy which relies increasingly also on their retail sector I guess you could make the collateral however that yeah well know that it's ringing forward I mean if you know if the autonomy basically goes away and then twenty forty seven this is just brought forward that scenario right yeah I would be cautious about such predictions let's see what happens I mean right now there's a lot of politicians talking the their situation seems to be had to have calmed down somewhat on the side of the intensity of the protests which have admittedly guard a bit out of hand then recently with the events of the airport where you have some some by then some form decided the protesters as well so I would give it some time to see how it plays out not take everything at face value that is being sent okay well how are things shaping up in Japan following disappointing earnings well good

you also have the tax reform which boosted earnings in addition so always doing actually quite well and it's being treated as an emerging market where earnings are in deep down wires earnings are up so we think this under valuation gap by will be close by markets are over time but isn't there the risk if any strengthens that could be a big negative and and that is a distinct possibility very quickly would you say well it is a possibility but the end has already strength and then the Japanese companies and managed to increase earnings despite the rising yen over the past couple of years
