New Paradigm

Because of the global economic integration, as well as the soaring role of internet and rapid deployment of technology in the past decade, the ways how we invest have been changed. Paradigm changes in both market infrastructure and investment behavior are therefore observed:

  • In the capital markets, inter-linkages among global markets as well as free and timely fund flow appear.
  • In the aspect of information, information asymmetry is minimized and dissemination of information becomes rapid.
  • For the Government, there is a higher level of intervention, free market rules and norms are changed and interrelation with black swan events appears.

In order to be successful in today’s investment environment, we have to emphasise the capabilities of:

Practice on a diverse spectrum
of investment strategies
Viewing them from
a global perspective
Simultaneously checking on
multiple market conditions
technology adoption
Big data analytics & information
processing for timely decision making
Rigorous risk
Accurate trading
Avoiding emotional investing and
human errors resulted from sudden events,
such as political incidences
