"And go to Hong Kong where normally on this day people would have been marking the anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing the event remembers how pro democracy supporters many of them students were killed by the Chinese security forces as they demonstrated in one of the city's public squares Here's how the BBC's Kate AD reported that day 33 years ago The noise of gunfire rose from all over the center of Peking It was unremitting On the streets leading down to the main road to Tiananmen Square furious people stared in disbelief at the glow in the sky listening to the sound of shots Those events produced one of the most iconic photos of the 20th century alone protesters standing in front of a line of army tanks Hong Kong was once the only place in China where such events were permitted until the introduction of a national security law officials have warned that any unauthorized assembly could see demonstrators facing prison sentences of up to 5 years It is getting increasingly challenging to get to speak to the residents of Hong Kong and find out what their political views are But today we've been speaking to someone who used to attend that vigil every single year He asked us not to use his name for his own safety I first asked what would he have normally been doing on this day I used to go to Victoria park for the ceremony on this incident So many people every year especially in 219 it almost 200,000 people in the park to memorize this incident For me as a father of two children I think I have more obligation to pass these pieces of history which is so but very important history pieces of history to the next generation I think I have mobile drive to let the next generation thinking about of key thinking of this incident which is sold significant for any Chinese people How does it feel then As a father of two that this year you can't mark that because unauthorized assemblies not allowed by the authorities How do you explain that to your children Indeed I can't explain because the political environment in Hong Kong is quite different You know the national security law has been passed and forced now So as a father I don't want them to think too much You did because it's quite dangerous put them into a very dangerous position Because on the one hand I don't want them to talk about this kind of easel in school or to the friends because I think that's surveillance but on the other hand I think we have the application that I've mentioned to pass them There are too young to know the truth But does it give us an idea of some of the conversations that took place around Tiananmen Square before we've seen the changes that have taken place in Hong Kong What sort of conversations were there about it I think it's quite because it's so close to us because as a Hong Kong people we always tried for our universal suffrage And this is linked to the 1980 9s inserted which those students were trying to pursue the same goal as we do So I think Hong Kong people will think why they're so close at so important to us What does it tell us about Hong Kong Because the previous two years the authorities have said no gatherings because of COVID this year it's very clear that they just don't want people to gather to mark this event This is a very significant moment isn't it for Hong Kong and for people like it is very very very significant And I think that only excuse not the true reason why we can not have together it yes How do people who are pro democracy in Hong Kong How do you show that sentiment now It seems almost impossible to be able to do so Yeah Friends to come to my home and we get up and have a short talk on them We both have children just keep it inevitable profile Tony did into our private gathering Do you get worried about that Do you get worried that if you show any sentiments regarding Tiananmen Square that you could be arrested a number of people have been arrested haven't they I think it's not I'm worrying I even think of that Yes because I'm not sure You know for taking this interview I know I'm at risk but I still think there are some still have some very limited room for us to express our opinion of this incident Do you think that you with your children will be able in the next few years to be able to go to a vigil to mark this day again Or do you think that's never going to happen Never going to happen How does that make you feel Does it make you think of wanting to leave Hong Kong Take your children somewhere else Yes Sure To be honest yes Definitely We've had the U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken makes him strong remarks about the fact that people like you can not go and hold a vigil Is that going to make any difference though I can't see the difference right now but I think that we're a big change in Hong Kong in the coming few years I don't know I'm not sure indeed But do you think that if we have more international pressure from the U.S. on China will that make any difference in the end to the lives of people in Hong Kong your ability to stand up and protest I think it's better than nothing but I won't put too much hope on that Yes What should be done then What can be done to change the circumstances in Hong Kong You've got John Lee now in charge He's a former security chief do you worry that he's going to suppress democracy even more than before now Yeah yeah Most of the people like me most of us think it's no turnaround The thing will get worse and get worse So indeed we are really appreciate foreign country like Canada U.S. or even UK They offer us some lifeboat scheme for the Hong Kong and those or appreciate democracy veritable democratic value to have a better way to move to their country I think most people like me will choose to leave Hong Kong Yeah Can I ask you when you talk to your friends your colleagues at work What sort of split is there on this Are there people who do support the Chinese strategy who do you say this is the right way forward for Hong Kong To be honest most of my Friends is not supporting Chinese government so much Yes Indeed I don't think Hong Kong society itself is so spirited The split is only on the government or the very rich and the other ordinary citizens Okay I'm going to ask you a final question You must have been very young when Tiananmen Square happened What do.

"Brought to you by audible. How Hong Kong is dismantling the memory of the Tiananmen Square massacre by Amy guna. After months of debate over what to do with the pillar of shame, a statue commemorating the victims of the Tiananmen Square massacre on the campus of the university of Hong Kong, workers arrived in the middle of the night, dismantling and removing it. Reports started circulating on social media late Wednesday that security guards had erected plastic sheets and barricades around the statue, and that construction work could be heard going on. Videos on social media showed the top being wrapped up and carried away, while the base was removed by a crane. Since its 1997 handover from British colony to semi autonomous Chinese territory, Hong Kong had been one of the only places in China that openly marked the events of June 4th, 1989, when tanks rolled into Beijing's Tiananmen Square and left what is believed to be hundreds, if not thousands of protesters dead, and a violent crackdown by the Chinese Communist Party. More than 180,000 people were estimated to have gathered in Hong Kong's Victoria park in 2019 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the crackdown. But following massive anti government protests that year, Beijing has tightened control over Hong Kong, called up in the clamp down, commemorations of the Tiananmen massacre. Dozens of pro democracy figures are behind bars, and many civil society groups, including the group that organize the annual Tiananmen vigil, have disbanded. The world's only Tiananmen museum closed earlier this year over licensing issues. The Tiananmen commemoration event has been banned for the last two years, with officials citing COVID-19 restrictions, although other large events have been allowed, and nightclubs had been allowed to reopen a month before this year's anniversary. In December 8 activists were sentenced to jail for participating in the banned vigil, including media tycoon Jimmy lai, who was given a 13 month jail sentence over charges that he incited others to take part in an unlawful assembly. Other prominent democracy figures like Albert Ho, the former chairman of the group that organized the annual gathering have been jailed on charges relating to protests in 2019. HK confirmed the removal of the orange colored statue, which depicts corpses piled on top of each other in a statement issued Thursday. It's said that approval was never granted to display the statue, which was erected in a prominent spot on campus more than 20 years ago. And that it had been put in storage. The university also said it was very concerned about the potential safety issues resulting from the fragile statue. The university had requested that the 26 foot statue be removed from its campus in October, sending a letter to a now disbanded civil society group that organized annual candlelight vigils to mark the Tiananmen Square massacre in Hong Kong. The request sparked protest, and the law firm Mayer Brown, the university's legal representative, withdrew from the case after facing international pressure. Jens gell shut, the Danish sculptor who made the statue, said in a statement that he was shocked by its removal, and that he'd been trying to contact the university for several weeks to move the sculpture. He said, it is a disgrace and an abuse and shows that Hong Kong has become a brutal place.

Thanks, Ed. Let's get back to Alex Wolf, Head of investment strategy for Asia. J. P. Morgan private bank Galaxies in an interactive brokers studio in Hong Kong. Let's talk about the complications for the Fed. We have that weekend than expected Jobs report. Fed officials also saying that U. S economic growth down shifted slightly in early July through August, said the Delta variants still wreaking Lot of havoc. When do we see a tape in here? We still expect an announcement later this year. So we expect an announcement in November and then tapering to begin in December. But of course, there's quite a bit of a flexibility around that. We could see it come a little bit later, depending what what data looks like, depending on the continued impact of Delta, But we think the latest nonfarm payrolls is not enough. We need to see a more more persistent, deeper downturn in terms of the labor market recovery for for it to really impact the Fed. So the next couple months will be will be key in that respect, and they've been so effective in communicating their intentions. I wouldn't imagine. Maybe I'm wrong here that we're going to see much in the way of market reaction When it finally comes to pass. What do you think? That's that's our view as well. This is probably one of the most Well signaled monetary policy moves in a long time. Everyone is known. It's coming and what's different now, if you compare a lot of people's memories of tapering in 2013, but now The market pricing is very much in line with fed expectations, whereas back then market was price for very dovish Fed. And then the Taper announcement Force markets to react more to price in a more hawkish fed, But now you're looking at market pricing very much in line with the feds, so shouldn't expect much of a market reaction for what it actually is announced, and it begins. Delta is still complicating things in terms of the reopening, and even in places across Asia that have high vaccination rates are not still seeing it kind of happened to the extent that you thought you might be by this stage. What are you looking at? In terms of moving, I guess towards you're saying favoring cyclicals here, But there is, as you point out a lot to fully reopen. There's still a lot of headwinds ahead. Yeah, that That's one of our I think that's one of the components of our views of liking. Second goals is that we still have We talked about when we look at the U. S. And he said us is entering mid cycle. But you look at the rest of the world and there's still a lot of parts of the world that has yet to even really reopen. And I think Southeast Asia is certainly one of those areas, even even Japan. Where you have strong sequential growth yet ahead while in the U. S. That's largely behind us. But it will. It will require more vaccinations and as you mentioned are places like where you're sitting in Singapore that that have achieved a very high level vaccination but still struggling a bit with reopening. Were so positive that reopening will will progress as as a Delta wave someone passes because it looks like we're seeing a peak infections of Peking hospitalizations, at least in in the western part of the world where it does look like it's it's subsiding a bit. So data from the Institute of International Finance indicates that e. M excluding China suffered net outflows from both debt and equity in the month of August for the first time since the pandemic, and I'm wondering for a person such as yourself that focuses on developing strategies for Asia. Whether it's a real tough case that you've got to make right now that you don't want to be exposed to the US primarily that there are opportunities in Asia to take advantage of, if that's the case, make the case. Yes. So we've been looking at at Asia. Generally, investors look at Asia as as a block and tent. The the cycle in the past tends to move in line across countries in Asia. But now we're looking at quite a significant divergence between North, Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia, largely because of how it's contained the coronavirus as well as the structure of its economy. Korea, Taiwan, China Very, very strong Export numbers or Southeast Asia. More services based so we've been thinking about Asia. Much more selectively so looking at the individual markets that we see performing well and say Taiwan is a great example being driven primarily by semiconductors being driven primarily by exports, and you've seen very strong growth numbers there, so it's more about being selected within Asia. But there are still very strong cases for individual markets. Alex a quick word on Japan as we look to a leadership change. Yes, so that that removes one potential source of risk, I think looking at politics..

I'm Ed Baxter, This is Bloomberg. Douglas. All right, Eddie. Thank you. Alex Wolff is with us. He is head of investment strategy for Asia at J. P. Morgan Private bank joining us from our studios in Hong Kong. Thanks for being with us, Alex. Lot of our conversation this morning where you are has focused on this. Kind of Crackdown That's been happening at a rate that seems to be like the steady drip drip drip, and I'm wondering what you think it's really about what is fundamentally happening here. Yes, I think it's more continuation of the messaging that we've had out of Beijing going back in a couple of years, emphasizing the quality of growth versus the quantity of growth and the way policy making occurs really anywhere but especially in China that you get the Get the strong signal in terms of policy direction, and then it takes time for that policy to be that policy direction to be implemented through the bureaucracy and going back to 2017. We heard more of an emphasis on the quality of growth. Which entails, of course. Reducing inequality, improving the environment, etcetera, and we're just starting to see that play out through policy actions. They focused on DECARBONIZATION. Now it's it appears to be more focused on reducing inequality. On improving the livelihoods of the low lower lower income middle income class and that that is a fundamental shift. But we're just seeing the policies now along that shit because be implemented. And it's just growing further and wider as well. And a lot of concerns about the property sector and what that means. A Bank of America saying unnecessarily aggressive Macquarie saying This would be the absolute last resort. If you see the tentacles go across here, but it just really raises the question of what do you do? How do you play this? You stay away at the moment. That the property question is probably the biggest and most important question really facing the outlook for China just over the last 10 years, the property cycle, the property sector really has been the key sector. Both driving growth, and when policymakers want to stimulate they stimulate through the property sector, so the regulations that we're seeing right now in terms of trying to cap property prices and reduce the ability of property developers really to grow significantly. That's good key question Mark, especially if we see growth slow. Below expectations into next year. Are they going to ease up some of those measures or maintain those measures? But as far as your question around that sector sector doesn't have the best prospects, especially because it seems like They are falling through, and a lot of these measures are quite biting, particularly for property developers, ability to grow and what we see in terms of other fundamental factors in the property sector. So if we're talking about a crackdown when it comes to high technology crackdown when it comes to property, what is going to be the the net consequence for economic growth in China? Taken as a whole, You'd have to think that the property one as I mentioned is probably the most impactful from a growth perspective, much more so than what we're seeing around Tech but taken as a whole as you mentioned with measures around the tax sector measures around Around the property sector. And even as I mentioned the the decarbonization measures, which are capping a steel production impacting industrial sector taken as a whole, it is going to have a negative impact. At the moment, though, it's really hard to quantify, and that's why that's why we think policymakers from Monterrey policy perspective are getting ahead of it a bit with easing, but they they will respond and will be data dependent. Once we know more about the.

I'm Ed Baxter, this is Bloomberg jewels. Thank you. And let's get back to Matthew Quayle, head of multi asset investment management for Asia. Fidelity International who joins us from Hong Kong. Just wanna pick up a little bit more about what we're talking about in China, the slowdown in terms of the economic recovery and also Beijing's regulatory crackdown. Bank of America, calling the property crackdown unnecessarily aggressive. What do your views as we continue to see this wide spreading crackdown from Beijing? Year on the liquidity side, and on the housing side. We still see a negative impulse, which generally leads to, um not quite the right time to go long axes at this juncture, but the government has room to take the kind of, um Their finger off this this issue on and they could bring in the quality increase the credit impulse slightly refrain on what they're doing in the property sector at some point To keep the balance. So I think that's the main signal that we will be looking for, in terms of when broad Chinese deputies and truly bottoming Matthew. We're not even sure in China if they know whether this is the profound revolution that some say it is or whether or not it's incremental steps by by the Communist Party. How are we supposed to know where it's going? Mhm. Well, they're they're addressing the political aims. But it's also well worth noting again that they truly want to compete on the global stage and take areas of China healthcare. They want an innovative Industry that can compete with US market and ultimately having the innovation in China will make it cheaper for the people. So in order for that to happen, and to inspire innovation, you've got to allow The upside in investment. So yes, in certain areas. This is a very hard crackdown, but in other areas that should be material upside. Talking earlier as well about the impact of the virus of Delta on the overall global economic recovery. What are you looking at, in terms of potential upside from some of the Asian countries that have potentially handled it better? We just had actually a really interesting story that Hongkong's growth will match Singapore's for the first time since 2000 and eight Yes, and in certain areas have done very well. But they've done very well by having, um zero covid policy. I think the transition to opening up with the rest of the world will be the big challenge. How do you go from a policy of cracking down to 02? Living with the virus, and I think that's what markets will be watching over the next year. It's hard to know, I suppose Matthew whether or not once we get the recovery, whether it's kind of in a rush and over fast. Are we going to fall off a cliff? Or do you think that the growth generally speaking will be sustained over a considerable period of time? Think growth will be sustained over a period of time, Uh, for now will be above trend. But there is the the rule of depth to consider, and ultimately, we would need higher productivity rates in the world for broad growth to be higher. But again coming back to areas there's going to be profound change over coming years With regard to areas like dealing with climate change, certain sectors of the economy would be doing incredibly well. And you say they're overweight. Those industries exposed to the change. What are you looking at? In terms of the older energy sector. We've got oil still holding these games. And, of course, that plays very much into the reopening theme, too. Yeah, we We think that oil is largely fairly priced here. So we've been taking down exposure to asset classes that are correlated to that, such as, um The Russian ruble. Um, so at the moment, we don't have a lot of active exposure to energy, but it's probably worth saying that, uh, as the world goes on a path. Over the coming years of reducing and demand and then trying to match supply to that.

The Japanese government has told the ruling coalition it is planning to extend the state of emergency in Tokyo, Osaka and 17 other prefectures until September, 30th. In San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter, This is Bloomberg. All right, Brian. All right. Thank you very much. Let's get to Matthew Quayle, who's head of multi asset investment management for Asia had Fidelity International math. You want to talk about the job situation in the United States slower hiring there. A lot of it was down to supply constraints. The jobs are being created, but they just can't find the workers. But I'm curious because you know, that would seem to suggest that well, it's not a problem. The demand is there, but it actually is an issue right? Good morning. Thank you for having me. Um yes, We have seen a very volatile different numbers in the job market recently. But ultimately what the markets looking for is this kind of landing from growth and inflation from the acceleration. We saw everything accelerated, um and and reopened. And now it's decelerating. It's going to land a certain level, and we still think growth and inflation or land above trend in the coming months, and therefore the Fed will be Will be tapering in December in likelihood, and that's quite likely to still lead upward pressure on real rates. So is this global recovery then over or are we just on pause for now? No, it's not over. It's just often markets react to the second derivative of growth or inflation. So when something accelerates very fast, but then it it comes back to US. Slightly lower growth rate. The market's trying to work out what level that's going to come back to, and I think we're going to bottom out at a pretty healthy level on growth and and quite reasonably elevated but controlled inflation level. Once the market has a bit more visibility on that bond markets can can move to appropriate levels and the market can digest that that reality. So given all that, what does it leave you? The most overweight? What do you like out there? So there are some medium term convictions around areas exposed to climate change. We still think that huge opportunity and industry that providing building insulation suppliers in the electrical vehicle chain Even areas like copper. Now on a medium term basis, there's going to be such a huge demand for copper to electrify the world, so it's areas like that. We're really looking for where they've sold off recently and adding to those In addition, we like the U. S consumer still, um, the U. S. Consumers never come out of the crisis in such a healthy position. And there there are a number of stocks across the U. S consumer space. That are exposed to that will do very well over over the medium term. And then finally, what we call Bond Proxies, versus versus bonds, so defensive XT such as healthcare utilities staples. The relative attractiveness of these versus that they corporate bonds on a risk adjusted basis have so much more upside in the medium term who have been looking, of course at the crackdown in China, too. And another one potentially on the way. It just seems very wide spreading here. How much are you staying away from investing in China? How vegetable is China at the moment? Yeah, I think it's wrong to think that this intervention is the flash in the pan. There is a driven common prosperity notion behind what is occurring and ultimately, political intervention can drive a higher risk premium. Structurally into into Chinese equities. Um, that said, there are a number of border areas that achieved now, Um and at some point, we're likely to see more carrot of that just stick their definitely industries that the.

Johnson has called it a pandemic Ketchup program in San Francisco. I'm at Baxter, This is Bloomberg, right, Douglas? Right, Eddie. Thank you. Let's get to Anna Han, our guest for the half hour. Anna is equity strategist at Wells Fargo. Joining us on the line from here in New York. Thanks for being with us Santa today at we got kind of word than a number of money managers are very cautious now in the U. S equity market and A number of them see relative valuations as being excessive. This is really not anything new. If you've been paying attention, I mean, these markets are very richly priced. Is it a surprise to you? And are you a part of this mentality that thinks that we've got to pay more attention to where evaluations are trading right now. Doug. I can't really say that. I'm caught by surprise here that some parts of the market are more expensive than others. That's been the story we've been telling. And we've known that going into the pandemic and coming out of it, so to see investors a bit taken aback. I can't say we're in the same boat, but I think what we have to appreciate is a nuance of which parts of the market we're looking at that look overvalued, versus less or more attractive. Okay, so which parts might be re talking about you and how you taking profits there? For us, we're spinning out and away from the software industry that looks expensive to us on evaluation basis. It's near the late dot com bubble levels and to us the environment that we see today is not really something that we think justifies that kind of expensive a richness, especially for how MPs provisions have been going in that sector. It's not the risk reward we're looking for. But instead you know, take that cash. We recommend looking in media and entertainment. Think that the growth prospects in the outlook there are much better being for your buck, especially with the valuations being being more reasonable. So that's really the tube like pair trades that I've been focusing on lately, and the semiconductor space also looks to be richly priced. Would you devil here or is that the same theme that you just laid out with with respect to software that you would apply that thinking to semis? Definitely look at it in his relative valuation framework, and also one thing that's sort of clouding the SME sector. Keep in mind is the outlook on when these kind of supply chain constraints are going to ease up. If we don't have too much clarity there and given the valuations, then it's not really the most exciting picture for us, and we wouldn't necessarily enter that trade now. So for US semis, Not really the place we would look to pivot into Where do you find good opportunities at the moment. What's not too richly valued? Well, aside from media entertainment industry, which has been more of an offensive play something we've been talking a lot with clients have been a low volatility exposure. And when you think low volatility think you're defensive industry, you think you're sectors like REITs Utilities Industrials Now. Staples counts in there, too. But Staples comes with a little bit of concern with the reopening, timing and the reason why I'm looking at these low of all sectors. It's because evaluation why they are attractive, but on the other hand, they performed very well in volatile markets as a name of suggest, and with uncertainty coming around in the macro picture in the calendar. Especially with tapering potential concerns of what we're going to do this winter. If we go back into cope and lock down, these kind of things can be helped cushion the portfolio with a little ball lowball exposure. Yeah, it seems like it's a defensive play here, and you kind of laid out to the the the case for it if you're concerned about the macro environment And when we continue the conversation, I'd like to get your.
