Event Details
At this luncheon, Prof. Philip Cheng, Adjunct Associate Professor of Finance of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, will explore with us "The Art & Science of Successful Investing".  The following topics will be covered in his presentation:
  • Many principles and investment styles exist.  Most of us are facing various limitations. Buying and selling stocks (or bonds) are probably more of an art than a science. 
  • Everyone knows the benefits of diversification.  What about timing and methodology?
  • How should we set investment goals and accept risks on portfolio basis?
  • Information and data are abundant from the stock market.  Some tips are suggested how to concentrate on the more beneficial sources.
  • Financial indicators:  how may we benefit from some of them?  How can we see through some "packaging figures"?  How style of investing may affect a buy/sell decision?
  • Government and global trends:  how may we benefit from them?
