  • Private banks assist Asian clients shop for foreign property

    As more wealthy Asians seek to buy property overseas as an investment or short-term residence, their private bankers are only too happy to help, according to a recent article in the New York Times. Indeed, the wealth management divisions of banks are reporting a brisk business in setting up short-term revolving loans for property purchases. The term is usually five years, renewable annually after that, and the interest rate is set individually in accordance with the borrower's credit profile. Given the low interest rates in the region, it makes sense for clients to borrow against property and use the cash for investments to generate higher returns. Another goal is to take advantage of low interest rates on loans, and to borrow in Asian currencies that have appreciated smartly in recent ...

Another goal is to take advantage of low interest rates on loans, and to borrow in Asian currencies that have appreciated smartly in recent years against Western ones like the U.S. dollar and the British pound. According to a survey published this year by the real estate agency Cluttons and the consulting firm VPC Asia Pacific, about 57 percent of wealthy investors named London as their top target market for property purchases. Investors surveyed in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore identified the central London residential market as their primary target for offshore investments, while wealthy investors in Bangkok ranked London behind Rangoon, Burma, and wealthy Indonesians placed London in third position, after Singapore and Australia.

[Mark Fletcher, Attorney]: "I was here in '95 and '96, and it had a reputation for being a little bit dull, which it wasn't even then. And if it wasn't then it certainly isn't now. It's a fantastic place. So much new development, the equivalent of the London Eye over there and this sky tower is just fantastic." Singapore's central bank estimates overall assets under management in the city are up about 40 percent from a year ago. [Anton Casey, Wealth Manager]: "I think Singapore has positioned itself very well, in terms of capturing all the flow of assets from out of Switzerland. You've got Zurich, Geneva, Lugano, the major financial centres in Switzerland, and a lot of people are now preferring the Asian story. To try and bring their wealth out and capitalize on all the opportunities out here." The big players, including Swiss giants UBS AG and Credit Suisse are looking to expand into the Asia-Pacific region in the next few years. The end of a decades-long ban on casinos about five years ago was a turning point. [Anton Casey, Wealth Manager]: "You know I would have never believed that we would have two massive casinos here when I first arrived here 10 years ago. But here we are, we are sitting on the roof of one now. And if you look around the bay you got all the new skyscrapers, all the new banks, wealth management firms all here, so it's really kicked off and the Gran Prix had helped a lot as well." Singapore is spending billions on infrastructure in its drive to continue attracting the best and brightest.

6th Asia-Pacific Base OIl, Lubricant & Grease Conference 2012 Asian Economic Outlook Fan Cheuk Wan Managing Director Head of Research Asia Pacific Private Banking Abstract Looking back at 2011, fears of inflation, asset bubble risk and policy tightening were the key macro concerns in Asia. Looking ahead, we see reduced tail risk of a disorderly Greek debt default and EMU (European Economic and Monetary Union) break-up while the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis is expected to muddle through in 2012. Asia is impacted by Europe via two main channels: the financial and the economic effects. On financial contagion, we think that the impact can be contained due to very limited exposure of Asian banks and institutions to peripheral sovereign debt in Europe. On the economic effects, Europe accounts for about 11% of total demand for Asian exports, but only 4% stems from peripheral Europe. Asian growth is expected to remain relatively resilient as compared with the advanced economies due to the higher fiscal flexibility of the Asian countries to take policy responses to mitigate growth risks. China's soft landing, recent improvement in the U.S. labor market and manufacturing activities and stabilization in the Euro debt crisis are supportive drivers for the Asian economy in 2012. With domestic growth moderating, inflation easing and external demand weakening substantially, Asia has entered into a monetary easing cycle as central banks are taking counter-cyclical measures to mitigate the negative impact of the global slowdown. In 2012, we forecast GDP growth in non-Japan Asia to decelerate to 6.9%, from 7.4% in 2011, while GDP growth in Asia-Pacific to slightly accelerate to 5.9%, from 5.8%, due to the effects of the post-quake reconstruction in Japan. Global and domestic growth moderation is expected to cause inflation in non-Japan Asia to soften to 4.4% in 2012, from 5.9% in 2011, and inflation in Asia- Pacific to 3.6% in 2012, from 4.7% in 2011. However, the flexibility of Asian central banks to cut interest rates aggressively is limited due to sticky inflation. The financial imbalances caused by massive credit expansion in 2009-2010 and informal lending problems would constrain the room for China to launch aggressive counter-cyclical monetary and fiscal stimulus measures. China will introduce selective and moderate credit easing, but it seems unlikely for Beijing to reverse its property tightening measures which are targeted at defusing asset bubbles in the property market. The negative real interest rate environment also limits the scope for broad base monetary easing or policy rate cuts in China. We see scope for further cuts in the reserve requirement ratio of 100--250 basis points in 2012. Against the healthy macro backdrop in the region, we expect sustained appreciation in Asian currencies in the next 12 months as we believe that global growth could bottom out in the first half of this year and pick up slightly in the second half. A soft landing in China will lend support to a continued CNY appreciation stance and we forecast a 3-5% appreciation in the CNY against the USD over 12 months. About the Speaker Fan Cheuk Wan is a managing director of Credit Suisse, in charge of Private Banking Research across asset classes in Asia Pacific. Cheuk Wan joined Credit Suisse in October 2006.
