26th CLSA Investors’ Forum
September 9 - September 13
CWR WILL BE PRESENTING “GBA – THE NEW ATLANTIS? TOO MUCH/TOO LITTLE WATER” ON 11 SEPTEMBER
The base case has moved – the current consensus is that we are heading to 3°C to 4°C of warming on average instead of 1.5°C to 2°C. This has serious, severe impacts on water resources. How ready are we? Hong Kong is part of the Greater Bay Area (GBA), which generates USD1.6 trillion of GDP and is home to a population of 70 million spread across 11 cities.
However, the GBA, a key growth region identified in China’s 13th Five Year Plan, is vulnerable. It faces imminent threats from water and climate risks. Already eight of the 11 GBA cities are as dry as the Middle East; plus it is exposed to worsening water-related climate risks such as floods, typhoons, storm surges and sea level rise.
Just how exposed is it? Is it building resilience? Which sectors will be hit? This presentation gives the lowdown of various threats to the GBA and delves into scenarios of how corporates/index stocks could be impacted. Find out who benefits and who’s vulnerable. Since multiple companies will be affected, your portfolio could look like the new Atlantis. So avoid getting sunk by getting on top of these risks and factoring them into your valuations today.
In the 26th CLSA Investors’s Forum, CWR’s Director Debra Tan will be presenting the findings of new CWR guest-authored CLSA report “GBA – The New Atlantis? Too much/too little water” from 9am to 12pm on 11 September.
Please contact CLSA directly if you would like to attend as this is only open to their clients.
