What does the industry think? - 22 August

Brexit has not had an impact on China's markets and is not expected to have a significant impact on the mainland economy.






“Anyone who read the summary of last year’s National People’s Congress knew that the Brexit vote was not authorised to have an impact.”

Robert Ruderschmidt, portfolio manager, Overflowing Alpha Asset Management








“Finally I get a positive talking point to open up the good news/bad news conversation with clients whose portfolios have tanked.”

Louie Zheng, head of discretionary mandates, Global Behemoth Private Bank






“If you don’t hear back from me today, your request for comment was declined by compliance.”

Buffy Leung, corporate communications, Absolute Zero Risk Investment Management (AZRIM)








“That's because mainland investors thought the idea of a citizen’s referendum changing a country’s political direction was so wacky that Brexit was obviously British humor.”

Graham O’Brien, head of global distribution, Unhinged Asset Management




“We’ve got two British managers who can comment, but one voted for and the other against and we can’t let one comment and not the other, which takes the conversation away from the core message of how great our funds are.”

Shelley Sim, head of marketing in APAC, SmoothTalk Fund Management Group
