Event Details
- Which equity markets in Asia are the best bets for 2018?
- What global strategies should you have high conviction in?
- Where is China headed in the next year?

These are the questions that Dr. Jim Walker will address in this luncheon presentation. 

Come and hear:
- why Japan and China are likely to be outperformers in an equity sense,
- why being long India is a global strategy for the next 10 years and
- why the doomsayers on China’s financial system are just missing the point.

About the Speaker

Dr. Jim Walker
Founder and Chief Economist
Asianomics Group Limited

Between 1991 and 2007 Dr. Jim was Chief Economist at CLSA, where he was regularly voted ‘best regional economist’ in Asiamoney, Institutional Investor and Greenwich surveys.

Dr. Jim is a key speaker at major economic conferences and a presenter at global investment forums. He regularly airs his hard-hitting views on economic issues and policies on TV, notably on CNBC, Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg. Note that clients always hear his views weeks in advance of any media appearances.  

Before moving to Asia, Dr. Jim worked as an economist with The Royal Bank of Scotland and was an economic researcher at the Fraser of Allander Institute in his native Scotland, where he also gained a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree and a Doctorate in Economics from Strathyclyde University, Glasgow.
