On October 15, 2021, the Chairman of the FBA EAC Committee on International Leasing Vladimir Sokolov took part in the XXVIII Conference "New Economic Reality" organized by TCB Investment Partners.
The Conference discussed the impact of the pandemic on the Russian and global economy, as well as trends in financial markets.
Representatives of BNP Paribas Asset Management Chi Lo and Michael Herskovich spoke about the development of China and the climate agenda. In his speech Chi Lo noted that China is intensifying the policy of regulating the economy. State-owned enterprises are tasked with realizing large investment projects, and small and medium–sized businesses are tasked with developing technologies. It was decided to return industrial enterprises to the country. Such measures should increase the number of workplaces. Michael Herskovich highlighted the issue of sustainable investment. He proposed the Climate Action 100+ initiative, which aims to stimulate changes in companies reducing greenhouse gas emissions and switching to a low-carbon economy.
Speaking about the growth of the share of "green" financial instruments in fund portfolios, the head of the Investment Marketing Department of TKB Investment Partners Egor Kiselyov confirmed introduction of stricter requirements in relation to them. According to him, today the main focus is on sustainable investment in "green" technologies, which is why it is possible that demand for oil, gas and products of the metallurgical industry will decrease.
Managing Director of Investments at TKB Investment Partners Vladimir Tsuprov spoke about the state of global inflation in Russia and on the world market. In his opinion, there is no analogy with 2008, and there is no large-scale crisis, despite the fact that the Bank of Russia raises the rate, restrictions are implemented, and prices for some products are regulated. Stock returns in the Russian market are high, this should protect the Russian market from price fluctuations. It also applies to bonds, especially the federal loan bonds. According to Vladimir Tsuprov's forecast gold is potentially the best asset today.
