Sep.04 -- DBS Group Holdings Ltd. Chief Executive Officer Piyush Gupta discusses the usage of new technology and the prospects for digital transformation in the banking industry. He also talks about the lender's expansion strategy, the trade war between the U.S. and China, and the protests in Hong Kong. He speaks on the sidelines of the "Sooner Than You Think" technology conference in Singapore with Haslinda Amin on "Bloomberg Daybreak: Asia."
Singapore’s non-oil exports fell for a seventh consecutive month in September, as US-China trade tensions and weak global growth continue to dampen economic performance. Exports fell 8.1 per cent year on year last month, according to Enterprise Singapore, a government agency. A small, export-oriented economy, Singapore stands to lose more than most in south-east Asia from weak global growth and the US-China trade feud.
In 2009 Piyush Gupta was appointed CEO of DBS Group Holdings Ltd (SGX:D05). This report will, first, examine the CEO...
* Sino-U.S. trade talks slated to start Thursday * Philippine c.bank gov signals end of rate cuts for 2019 * Malaysia touches lowest close in over 4 years By Soumyajit Saha Oct 9 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets closed lower on Wednesday as rising tensions between the United States and China punctured hopes of a trade deal with talks slated to begin on Thursday.
* Sino-U.S. trade talks set to start on Thursday * Philippine c.bank gov signals end of rate cuts for 2019 * Singapore set to snap two sessions of gains By Soumyajit Saha Oct 9 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets dropped on Wednesday, as tensions between the United States and China heightened hours ahead of high-level negotiations, denting hopes of a trade deal. Washington imposed visa restrictions on Chinese government and Communist Party officials over abuses of Muslim minorities. "I think more bad news is yet to come." Philippine stocks shed previous session's rally to drop as much as 1% after the central bank said that last month's rate cut could be the last of 2019.
(Bloomberg) -- Stocks still look particularly attractive in a world of ultra-low bond yields, according to Southeast Asia’s largest bank DBS Group Holdings Ltd.Equities are a better risk-reward play than bonds, which are looking expensive after this year’s big rally, Chief Investment Officer Hou Wey Fook wrote in his fourth-quarter asset allocation report. He recommends dividend shares and gold as well as hybrid European AT1 securities.Institutional funds “have little choice but to turn to equities,” Hou wrote. “As the trend of ever-lowering bond yields continues on the back of a renewed cycle of policy easing by global central banks, other higher-yielding asset classes have risen to be the next ‘bond proxies.’”Stocks Wobble as Data Show Economy ‘Cracks’: Wall Street ReactsInvestors have been navigating a tricky path this year as the Federal Reserve pivoted from rate-hike plans to rate cuts, other global central banks became more dovish, geopolitics reared its head in the likes of the U.K., Italy and Iran, and as the U.S.-China trade war ramped up. Global stocks have lost $1 trillion in value this week amid a stream of weak U.S. and European economic data, with the MSCI ACWI down about 2% in the period.Hou has been recommending a “barbell strategy” for some time now to deal with the uncertainty -- some bets for assets that do well in a downturn, some that outperform in an upswing.Dividend stocks are favored as bond proxies because “the constant dividend stream acts as a volatility dampener,” Hou wrote. He likes Singapore real-estate investment trusts, large China banks and European oil majors, he said.Other takeaways from the asset-allocation report include:Bear steepening of U.S. Treasury yield curve is “on the cards.”As the U.S.-China trade war drags on, European earnings may continue to deteriorate because of the region’s big export exposure to emerging markets.The recent pullback in Chinese stocks creates an attractive entry point.And he sees a favorable environment for gold.“Against the backdrop of an unpredictable tug-of-war between easy monetary policies and geopolitics, gold will be favored as an effective portfolio diversifier and to enhance risk-adjusted returns,” he said.(Adds MSCI ACWI move in fourth paragraph.)To contact the reporter on this story: Joanna Ossinger in Singapore at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Christopher Anstey at email@example.com, Divya Balji, Rita NazarethFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
* Push for Trump impeachment increases political risk * Philippine stocks at four-week low * Thai stocks down ahead of cenbank policy decision By Anushka Trivedi Sept 25 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets dropped on Wednesday as investors offloaded risky assets after the launch of a formal impeachment inquiry against U.S. President Donald Trump raised prospects of more political uncertainty in the world's largest economy. Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday launched a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, accusing him of seeking foreign help to smear Democratic rival Joe Biden ahead of next year's election.
* Indonesian shares at 7-week low * Malaysian stocks on track to fall for second session * Thai stocks little changed after Aug manufacturing data By Anushka Trivedi Sept 24 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets were subdued on Tuesday as poor business activity readings from the euro zone and concerns about slowing global growth kept risk appetite in check. The manufacturing sector was in doldrums in Germany, Europe's biggest economy, while the French business activity also shrank in September, a survey on Monday showed, as global trade issues caught up to the euro bloc and stoked fears of a recession. "The world's economic growth momentum has stuttered amid heightened global trade tensions ... Any sudden spike in geopolitical or trade tensions, along with a rapid deterioration in the global economy's projected path forward, is expected to return safe-haven assets to 2019 highs," Han Tan, market analyst at FXTM said in a note.
