Risk assets witnessed the best start to a calendar year since 1998. A dovish Fed, signs of a US-China trade deal, an improvement in China's economic data all helped sentiment. Still, concerns around the bull cycle's longevity remains. Fears of a US recession, continued global trade tensions and Brexit uncertainties are key global risks, but hiding isn’t the answer. Our base case remains that a recession is not imminent In fact, over the long term, the greater “risk” for investors is not being invested. Investors need to ensure their portfolios are well-prepared by making sure they Plan, Protect, and Grow. 

In Asia, particularly in China, green shoots of economic growth are emerging. In the longer term, China also plans to develop the Greater Bay Area (GBA) as a financial and innovation hub. The GBA is projected to overtake other world-class bay areas by 2025, offering exciting multi-investment opportunities.
