China views


    What the advisers say:

    Martin Bamford, managing director at Informed Choice, says:

    “The change of leadership in China should be positive news for investors. We had experienced a period of uncertainty in the run up to the leadership change. But the fact that it was such a smooth transition was reassuring and the early messages from Xi Jinping suggest plans for economic reform which should result in more sustainable economic growth in the future. What happens in China has important consequences for global investors, so this is a story that all investors will want to watch with interest.”

    Darius McDermott, managing director of Chelsea Financial Services, says:

    “I don’t expect that there will be any radical policy changes with the new leadership, just more of the same. The economy has slowed but growth is still at a respectable rate in spite of all the gloomy headlines – the adjustment to more realistic growth expectations may take a while though as we have been spoiled in recent years. The market itself has been oversold and is one of the cheapest in the emerging world, even when you exclude the banks from the market valuation. The PMI survey looks to have just started to pick up and, as long as the global situation doesn’t worsen, it may be a buying opportunity for higher risk investors willing to sit it out for the long term.”
