China Communication Infrastructure Sector: Accelerating capex ramp in 2H21-1H22

We expect 2H21 capex to pick up post a slow 1H21, given the: (1) announcement of 5G tenders; (2) easing of supply constraints; and (3) stabilising of the regulatory environment. The three telcos/BAT had only completed 37%/45% of their FY21E capex in 1H21; the expected acceleration in capex should be a core earnings improvement driver for the communication infrastructure supply chain.

China Telecom Sector: The overlooked 'new infrastructure' gems

We adjust our capex and BTS estimates, incorporating peak 5G capex in 2022, the extensive co-build, co-share arrangements among operators and government support of flexible use of spectrum, which lowers the number of BTS required to achieve national coverage. We estimate operators' capex to grow by 2/1/-5% YoY in 2021/22/23E (0/2/4% below consensus) to reflect our latest 5G BTS estimate of 1.4/2.1/2.7 mn in 2021/22/2023E.

CIO View: Hong Kong readies to make tech world its oyster

The introduction of the Hang Seng TECH Index (HSTI) is an important statement of intent that dovetails with both our thoughts on key issues and on our investment preferences – both in terms of geography and sector. While we remain neutral on equities overall, we have continued to advocate being selective about key exposures. The HSTI is certainly worth considering on multiple fronts.

CIO View: Lightening tightening

We assess the prospects for the Asian high yield space in the context of its sharp re-bound. The segment remains attractive, but also plagued by significant uncertainty and risks. Our base case points to investors enjoying a total return of around 8% over the next 12 months, which warrants our neutral stance on this asset class. Nevertheless, we remain mindful of developments in a key risk area – US-China tensions.

CQi Consumer Credit - Weakness seen in Huiminbao model, policy risk peaks in consumer credit, WMP boom continues

CQi’s consumer survey shows that most Huiminbao insurance buyers regard the product as an addition to, rather than a substitute for, their existing medical insurance. Huiminbao’s penetration ratio on the CQi panel will likely double to 20% in 12 months, far below the 70-80% industry experts say is needed for it to be sustainable.

CQi Business Monitor - Production cuts are spreading; they may speed up manufacturers’ green investment

Output curbs mandated by local authorities have spread. More disruptions to supply chains and raw materials price increases are on the cards, but the production cuts may inadvertently accelerate investment in green equipment and the shift to renewable energy sources, CQi’s on-the-ground contacts tell us.

Rethinking Retirement

Increasing life expectancies and falling fertility rates have led to aging populations becoming a reality in many countries across the globe. Population projections suggest that, by 2032, the total number of people aged 65+ in China will surpass the number of people between 10 and 25 years of age. 

Changing demographic profiles are putting pressure on existing pension systems around the world. For example, in 2050, China would have faced public pension spending of an estimated 10% of GDP, more than doubling from 4% in 2015-16. 

In an in-depth study, the Credit Suisse Research Institute (CSRI) is calling for an urgent rethink on retirement provisions in the face of aging societies.
