LONDRES, June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — David Barrett, CEO do EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd, compartilhou recentemente sua opinião sobre o crescente interesse em investimentos chineses durante uma extensa entrevista com Yi Cai.

Aumento da Participação Estrangeira

Nos últimos meses, houve um aumento notável do interesse estrangeiro nas ações chinesas, impulsionado por investidores de alto perfil. Michael Burry, conhecido por suas previsões durante o “The Big Short”, aumentou significativamente seus investimentos na JD.com e no Alibaba. Da mesma forma, o fundo hedge de David Tepper investiu fortemente em tecnologia e nos mercados chineses. Esse interesse crescente se reflete no desempenho do Nasdaq Golden Dragon China Index, que subiu 14,86% de 22 de abril a 3 de maio, alcançando seu maior ganho de duas semanas desde janeiro de 2023. Em 16 de maio, o Índice fechou em alta de 2,49%, marcando seu nível mais alto desde setembro de 2023.

Barrett atribui esse interesse renovado ao valor relativo que os mercados chineses oferecem. “Os índices chineses têm enfrentado dificuldades desde a quebra liderada pelo setor imobiliário em 2021, causando uma queda substancial no investimento direto estrangeiro e na confiança doméstica. No entanto, isso levou a discrepâncias extremas de preços, tornando as ações chinesas uma opção atraente para investidores focados no valor”, explicou Barrett. “Investidores como Burry e Tepper são conhecidos pelo seu foco estratégico em carteiras de alta concentração, e seus investimentos significativos em empresas chinesas indicam a forte confiança no potencial de alta desses mercados.”

Perspectivas futuras dos investimentos chineses

Barrett permanece otimista quanto ao crescimento contínuo dos mercados chineses no futuro. “Vários indicadores sugerem que o governo chinês está tomando medidas eficazes para estimular o crescimento econômico e restaurar a confiança do mercado”, disse Barrett. “Os esforços para apoiar áreas vulneráveis da economia, incentivar investimentos domésticos e estabilizar o cenário financeiro estão começando a mostrar resultados positivos.”

Ele enfatizou o papel crucial da política interna na sustentação desse crescimento. “São essenciais políticas que visem reduzir os riscos patrimoniais, apoiar a indústria de semicondutores e incentivar as empresas estatais a fortalecer suas posições financeiras. Além disso, as iniciativas das empresas chinesas para aumentar o pagamento de dividendos provavelmente irão atrair mais investidores estrangeiros que buscam rendimento em um ambiente de taxa de juros mais alta.”

Setores Promissores e Alocação Global de Ativos

Barrett destacou o setor de tecnologia como uma área-chave para investimento nos mercados de ações de ações A e Hong Kong. “As empresas de tecnologia chinesas estão na vanguarda da inovação e, com o apoio substancial do governo, estão bem posicionadas para enfrentar os desafios globais”, disse Barrett. “Por exemplo, se a China tiver obstáculos para a compra de semicondutores, poderá desenvolver seus próprios semicondutores. Com as impressionantes margens de lucro observadas em empresas como a NVIDIA, há um forte incentivo para as empresas chinesas produzirem chips competitivos e de baixo custo. Com o substancial apoio e investimento governamentais, podemos esperar resiliência e um considerável potencial de crescimento neste setor.”

Ele também identificou a indústria de veículos elétricos (VE) como um setor promissor. “Como tópico, os VEs têm tido muito destaque ultimamente”, observou Barrett. “No entanto, não temos certeza quanto ao desempenho das marcas ocidentais na China continental e como as marcas chinesas se sairão no mercado global. Apesar desses desafios, a tecnologia chinesa permanece na vanguarda, e qualquer progresso, especialmente em meio a tensões geopolíticas, provavelmente reforçará o investimento doméstico. Este maior foco na inovação e desenvolvimento local aumentará as perspectivas de crescimento da indústria.”

Do ponto de vista global, Barrett aconselha uma estratégia diversificada de alocação de ativos, alertando contra o excesso de confiança nas ações dos EUA. “Embora os mercados dos EUA tenham tido um crescimento substancial, é crucial considerar oportunidades em outros lugares, como na China, onde as avaliações são atraentes”, explicou. “Dada a recente alta das ações dos EUA, aconselhamos cautela e diversificação. Commodities como ouro continuam atraentes como reserva de valor e proteção contra incertezas econômicas e geopolíticas. Com os bancos centrais continuando a administrar a liquidez e as taxas de juros, a manutenção de uma carteira equilibrada que inclua ativos internacionais subvalorizados e commodities tangíveis pode trazer estabilidade e potencial de crescimento.”

Augmentation de l’intérêt des étrangers pour les investissements chinois : David Barrett, PDG d’EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd, partage son point de vue avec Yi Cai

David Barrett, PDG d’EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd, est l’un des intervenants du Forum stratégique de Yi Cai sur les opportunités d’investissement en Chine.

David Barrett, PDG d’EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd, s’entretient avec Yi Cai de la montée en puissance de l’intérêt des étrangers pour les investissements chinois. Il étudie les facteurs qui poussent les grands investisseurs à se tourner vers les marchés chinois et donne son point de vue sur leur croissance future.

LONDRES, 06 juin 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — David Barrett, CEO de EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd, a récemment fait part de son point de vue sur l’intérêt croissant pour les investissements chinois lors d’un entretien approfondi avec Yi Cai. Monsieur Barrett a étudié les facteurs qui poussent les grands investisseurs à se tourner vers les marchés chinois et donne son point de vue sur l’avenir de ces investissements.

David Barrett, PDG d’EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd, est l’un des intervenants du Forum stratégique de Yi Cai sur les opportunités d’investissement en C

Augmentation de l’intérêt des étrangers

Ces derniers mois, l’intérêt des investisseurs étrangers pour les actions chinoises s’est considérablement accru, sous l’impulsion d’investisseurs de premier plan. Michael Burry, bien connu pour ses prédictions dans « The Big Short », a considérablement augmenté ses investissements dans JD.com et Alibaba. De même, le fonds spéculatif de David Tepper a fortement investi dans la technologie et les marchés chinois. Cet intérêt croissant se reflète dans la performance de l’indice Nasdaq Golden Dragon China, qui a bondi de 14,86 % entre le 22 avril et le 3 mai, réalisant ainsi sa plus forte progression en deux semaines depuis janvier 2023. Le 16 mai, l’indice a clôturé en hausse de 2,49 %, marquant son plus haut niveau depuis septembre 2023.

Monsieur Barrett attribue ce regain d’intérêt à la valeur relative qu’offrent les marchés chinois. « Les indices chinois ont connu des difficultés depuis l’effondrement de l’immobilier en 2021, ce qui a entraîné une baisse significative des investissements directs étrangers et de la confiance intérieure. Toutefois, cette situation a entraîné des écarts de prix extrêmes, faisant des actions chinoises une option attrayante pour les investisseurs axés sur la valeur», explique Monsieur Barrett. « Des investisseurs comme Burry et Tepper sont connus pour leur orientation stratégique vers des portefeuilles à forte concentration, et leurs investissements importants dans des sociétés chinoises témoignent d’une grande confiance dans le potentiel de croissance de ces marchés ».

Prospects futurs des investissements chinois

En se tournant vers l’avenir, Monsieur Barrett reste optimiste quant à la poursuite de la croissance des marchés chinois. « Plusieurs indicateurs suggèrent que le gouvernement chinois prend des mesures efficaces pour stimuler la croissance économique et restaurer la confiance des marchés », a noté Monsieur Barrett. « Les efforts visant à soutenir les secteurs vulnérables de l’économie, à encourager les investissements nationaux et à stabiliser le paysage financier commencent à donner des résultats positifs ».

Il a souligné le rôle crucial de la politique intérieure dans le maintien de cette croissance. « Les politiques visant à réduire les risques liés à l’immobilier, à soutenir l’industrie des semi-conducteurs et à encourager les entreprises publiques à renforcer leur position financière sont essentielles. En outre, les initiatives visant à augmenter les dividendes versés par les entreprises chinoises sont susceptibles d’attirer davantage d’investisseurs étrangers à la recherche de rendement dans un contexte de taux d’intérêt plus élevés ».

Des secteurs prometteurs et une répartition globale des actifs

Monsieur Barrett a souligné que le secteur technologique était un domaine clé pour l’investissement sur les marchés des actions A et de Hong Kong. « Les entreprises technologiques chinoises sont à la pointe de l’innovation et, grâce au soutien substantiel du gouvernement, elles sont bien placées pour relever les défis mondiaux », a affirmé Monsieur Barrett. « Par exemple, si la Chine est confrontée à des vents contraires dans l’achat de semi-conducteurs, elle a la capacité de développer ses propres produits. Compte tenu des marges bénéficiaires impressionnantes de sociétés telles que NVIDIA, les entreprises chinoises sont fortement incitées à produire des puces compétitives à moindre coût. Avec un soutien et des investissements importants de la part du gouvernement, la résilience et le potentiel de croissance de ce secteur sont considérables ».

Il a également identifié l’industrie des véhicules électriques (VE) comme un secteur prometteur. « Ces derniers temps, le sujet des VE a fait couler beaucoup d’encre », a observé Monsieur Barrett. « Toutefois, il n’est pas certain que les marques occidentales soient performantes en Chine continentale et, inversement, que les marques chinoises le soient sur le marché mondial. Malgré ces défis, la technologie chinoise reste à la pointe et tout progrès, en particulier dans un contexte de tensions géopolitiques, devrait stimuler l’investissement intérieur. Cette attention accrue portée à l’innovation et au développement locaux améliorera les perspectives de croissance de l’industrie ».

D’un point de vue mondial, Monsieur Barrett conseille une stratégie d’allocation d’actifs diversifiée et met en garde contre une dépendance excessive à l’égard des actions américaines. « Bien que les marchés américains aient connu une croissance substantielle, il est essentiel d’envisager des opportunités ailleurs, comme en Chine, où les valorisations sont attrayantes », a-t-il expliqué. « Compte tenu de la récente hausse des actions américaines, il convient d’être prudent et de diversifier les placements. Les matières premières comme l’or restent intéressantes en tant que réserve de valeur et couverture contre les incertitudes économiques et géopolitiques. Alors que les banques centrales continuent de gérer les liquidités et les taux d’intérêt, le maintien d’un portefeuille équilibré comprenant des actifs internationaux sous-évalués et des matières premières tangibles pourrait apporter stabilité et potentiel de croissance ».

ROSEN, A GLOBALLY RESPECTED LAW FIRM, Encourages AST SpaceMobile, Inc. Investors to Secure Counsel Before Important June 17 Deadline in Securities Class Action – ASTS

NEW YORK, June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of securities of AST SpaceMobile, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASTS) between November 14, 2023 and April 1, 2024, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), of the important June 17, 2024 lead plaintiff deadline.

SO WHAT: If you purchased AST SpaceMobile securities during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the AST SpaceMobile class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=24272 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email case@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 17, 2024. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually litigate securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) production of AST SpaceMobile’s five Block 1 BlueBird satellites had been negatively impacted by two suppliers of key subsystems; (2) as a result, AST SpaceMobile had not substantially completed the production of the Block 1 BlueBird satellites; (3) as a result, AST SpaceMobile’s five Block 1 BlueBird satellites were not on track to launch in the first quarter of 2024; and (4) as a result of the foregoing, defendants’ positive statements about AST SpaceMobile’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

To join the AST SpaceMobile class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=24272 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email case@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action.

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

Homes of Hope: Deriv Paraguay’s journey to empower underserved communities

Deriv lends a helping hand building houses for underserved communities in Paraguay

Deriv Paraguay and TECHO team-up to build homes
Deriv Paraguay and TECHO teams unite with a common goal of building houses for those in need.

AREGUA, Paraguay, June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Deriv is a leading online trading platform with a 25-year legacy of trust, innovation and service. This legacy extends to a commitment towards social responsibility, with active support for initiatives focused on environmental conservation and uplifting underprivileged communities. To mark Deriv’s 25th anniversary, the company plans to launch a series of CSR initiatives aimed at driving meaningful social betterment.

Deriv partnered with TECHO, a youth organisation in Paraguay, to provide housing solutions to underserved communities in the San Francisco Settlement, just outside of Asunción.

For over six months, Deriv has dedicated its efforts to the construction of 10 new houses for families in dire need. The initial planning phase, now complete, saw Deriv lead on the timeline for construction of the houses as well as identifying communities, families most in need and allocation of resources. The comprehensive plan details logistics, including material procurement, transportation, and implementing stringent safety protocols for seamless project execution.

In addition to housing construction, Deriv is committed to improving the community’s overall quality of life and future prosperity. Initiatives include providing access to technology like laptops, hosting community forums, and offering mentorship and training programs.

Sebastian Perez, the head of Deriv Paraguay’s office, shared insights into the project’s early stages, “Deriv employees were paired with TECHO employees to interview the families; this experience hit home for many as they were met with a new sense of admiration for what the families were going through. With this project, we hope to improve the quality of life of the communities in need.

Ian Insaurralde, a TECHO spokesperson, reflected on the collaboration’s goals, stating, “Our main purpose is to overcome and bring opportunities to families living in poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean. By working with Deriv, we have been able to help assess the community’s needs, develop an action plan, and provide them with the tools to improve their quality of life and transform their communities.

The initiative officially commenced in April, with the Deriv team in Paraguay working alongside TECHO to conduct detailed assessments of approximately 400 households within the neighbourhood. This evaluation focused on economic backgrounds, household sizes, and existing housing conditions, identifying those in urgent need of assistance and formulating a targeted support strategy.

Homes of Hope: O percurso da Deriv Paraguay para fortalecer comunidades desfavorecidas

AREGUA, Paraguay, June 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A Deriv é uma plataforma líder de negociação online, com um histórico de 25 anos de confiança, inovação e serviço. Este histórico reflete também o compromisso com a responsabilidade social, apoiando ativamente iniciativas focadas na conservação do meio ambiente e em iniciativas que visam melhorar a qualidade de vida e as condições de comunidades carentes. Para assinalar o 25º aniversário da Deriv, a empresa planeia lançar uma série de iniciativas de RSE visando promover uma melhoria social significativa.

A Deriv estabeleceu uma parceria com a TECHO, uma organização de jovens no Paraguai, para fornecer soluções de habitação a comunidades carenciadas no Assentamento de São Francisco, nos arredores de Assunção.

Durante mais de seis meses, a Deriv dedicou os seus esforços à construção de 10 novas habitações para famílias em situação de extrema carência. A fase inicial de planeamento, agora concluída, testemunhou a liderança da Deriv na definição do cronograma para a construção das habitações, assim como na identificação das comunidades, famílias mais necessitadas e na alocação de recursos. O plano abrangente detalha a logística, incluindo a aquisição de materiais, transporte e implementação de protocolos de segurança rigorosos para garantir uma execução perfeita do projeto.

Além da construção de habitações, a Deriv está empenhada em melhorar a qualidade de vida geral da comunidade e a prosperidade futura. As iniciativas incluem fornecer acesso à tecnologia, como computadores portáteis, realizar fóruns comunitários e oferecer programas de orientação e formação.

Sebastian Perez, o responsável pelo escritório da Deriv Paraguay, partilhou detalhes sobre as fases iniciais do projeto: “Os colaboradores da Deriv foram colocados em pares com os colaboradores da TECHO para entrevistar as famílias; essa experiência impactou muitos deles, pois testemunharam de perto as dificuldades enfrentadas pelas famílias. Com este projeto, esperamos melhorar a qualidade de vida das comunidades desfavorecidas.

Ian Insaurralde, porta-voz da TECHO, refletiu sobre a visão por trás da colaboração, afirmando: “O nosso principal objetivo é superar as dificuldades e trazer oportunidades para as famílias que vivem na pobreza na América Latina e nas Caraíbas. Ao trabalhar em conjunto com a Deriv, temos conseguido ajudar a avaliar as necessidades da comunidade, desenvolver um plano de ação e fornecer-lhes as ferramentas necessárias para melhorar a sua qualidade de vida e transformar as suas comunidades.”

A iniciativa começou oficialmente em abril, com a equipa da Deriv no Paraguai a trabalhar em conjunto com a TECHO para realizar avaliações detalhadas de aproximadamente 400 agregados familiares no bairro. Esta avaliação centrou-se nos antecedentes económicos, no tamanho das famílias e nas condições de habitação existentes, identificando aqueles que necessitam urgentemente de assistência e desenvolvendo uma estratégia de apoio direcionada.
