Metro Targeting: Hong Kong

Each month the eight analysts in Ipreo’s Capital Market Services US team compile and analyze data from across the financial markets.

The following cities are included in this monthly rotation:

  • San Francisco
  • Paris
  • Chicago
  • Hong Kong
  • London
  • Boston
  • Toronto
  • Los Angeles
  • Singapore
  • Philadelphia
  • Tokyo
  • New York

Ipreo uses that data to produce our Asia Metro Targeting Reports, which offer insight into the metro’s activity, as compared to the Global average.

The data uses the most recent quarterly findings from both Ipreo’s Equity Deals Database and DAVOS for ownership information. Together, this data provides interesting insight into historical information, investor activity, sector allocation activity and the domicile allocations information.

This April, the focus is on Hong Kong. Ipreo produces two reports on the area every month, one covering all of Asia except Japan, and one covering Japan’s activity individually. Below are excerpts and links to each Hong Kong-based report.

April 2018 Japan Metro Targeting Focus – Hong Kong

The Japan Metro Targeting Series provides insight into who has been buying and selling in Japan. This month’s report focuses on Hong Kong-based investors:

Despite Hong Kong being the sixth-largest investment center in Asia, with $240.0B in equity assets under management, it is only the 19th-ranked holder of Japanese equity assets ($10.4B), as the city’s investors prefer to devote their assets to other Asian markets. Within the Japanese market, investors have made moves into four of the ten sectors, but they decreased net activity in the area by 0.6% (-$57.7M).
