RANI JARKAS - DEVELOPMENT OF CLEAN TECHNOLOGY

The significance of a clean economy

Clean technology is based on the principles of biology, resource efficiency and second generation concept in basic industries.

The concept of clean technology refers to any process, product or service that helps to improve energy efficiency, sustainable use of resources or active environmental protection. This technology is very widespread, it is related to recycling, renewable energy, green transport, green chemistry and much more.

The clean technology is oriented to the transfer of energy sources from coal or other fossil fuels to solar power sources or hydroelectric power plants. It can be said that clean technology projects are actually renewable energy projects with good predispositions for future widespread use. Also, the goal is to reduce the total carbon emissions in the air so that the environment would be cleaner.

Rani Jarkas, who has a successful experience in the field of life sciences, points out that it is important to invest in clean technology, in order to achieve a better quality of life for all living beings on the planet.

Rani Jarkas - Will Hong Kong Remain Financial Centre of Asia?

The comfort of doing business in Hong Kong and its status as the ‘Gateway to China’ and the largest offshore renminbi centre in the world, makes it the evident place for companies to locate their headquarters in Asia.

But the fact cannot be held for denial that the crown of Hong Kong may be at risk slipping as China continues to internationalize the Renminbi, while political unrest creates unpredictability and other regional financial centres develop quickly.

The Benefits of Hong Kong: 

Rani Jarkas, Chairman of Cedrus Investments, a global boutique investment firm headquartered in Hong Kong, believes that the benefits of doing business in this great city are not difficult to find at all. Some of the benefits include being ranked the as the freest economy in the world by the US’s Heritage Foundation and highly educated workers in the territory.

That’s not all! The open and competitive business environment in Hong Kong, its sound regulatory framework and its low corporate tax rate make it easy to see as well as understand why more and more companies choose Hong Kong for their global and regional headquarters.

Hong Kong is the largest asset management centre in Asiam with a combined fund management business worth HK$17.393tn. It also had the highest level of IPOs in the world during the first six months of 2016, with HK$43.5 billiuon raised through the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

But probably most necessarily of all, Hong Kong is the largest offshore renminbi business centre, managing approximately three-quarters of all RMB payments. 

Patrick Ho, deputy head of equity, APAC, UBS CIO Wealth Management, comments: “Hong Kong is the leading financial hub in Asia, there is no question about it.”

Ho states that despite the fact that Hong Kong is no longer the only renminbi offshore centre in the world, it is still by far the biggest.

Singapore is breaking Hong Kong’s heels as its government advances to focus on initiatives to entice various businesses.

Well, Singapore has taken one step further in the Global Financial Centres Index, produced by think-tank Z/Yen Group.

Mark Yeandle, associate director at Z/Yen Group of Companies, comments: “Singapore is another extremely successful city and they are looking to become even more successful.”

Rani Jarkas strongly acknowledges the fact that Hong Kong is in such a strong position, partly because it’s the natural offshore centre for mainland China.

Rani Jarkas: China A shares will be included in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index

MSCI Inc. (NYSE: MSCI) announced on June 20, 2017 that beginning in June 2018, it will include China A shares in the MSCI Emerging Market Index and the MSCI ACWI Index.
The MSCI Emerging Markets Index is one of the world's most widely recognized measurements for stock performance in emerging markets. The index tracks the performance of more than 800 stocks in 23 economies, more than 70 percent of which are in Asia.
About $1.7 trillion in global assets are benchmarked to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, and overseas investors will start buying A shares when they are included in the index. That in turn would cause the A-share markets to see a further strong rise, Shanghai-based news website thepaper.cn reported on last Monday.
Rani Jarkas, Chairman of Cedrus Investments, a global boutique investment firm with offices in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing, said, “MSCI’s decision to include A shares in its index shows that China's economy is growing stably, and has a lot of potential. As more international capital flows in, the A-share markets will no longer be dominated by local investors and financial products in mainland stock markets will become more diversified.”
