Precient Investment Management - China Opportunity

  1. 1. The China Opportunity
  2. 2. CHINA  Most great investments begin in discomfort. – “The things most people feel good about – investments where the underlying premise is widely accepted, the recent performance has been positive and the outlook is rosy – are unlikely to be available at bargain prices. Rather, bargains are usually found among things that are controversial, that people are pessimistic about, and that have been performing badly of late.”

  18. 18. SMMES  Very difficult to get access to credit – Get expensive credit through shadow banking signal  Shadow banking actually works like a real bank / corporate bond market – Depositors get higher yield with higher risk – SMMEs get access to credit although expensive credit  Trusts make up only 7-10% of GDP  HSBC research that 90% of products issued by trusts are issued by companies with huge financial backing and profitability, will have no problems in making investors whole  In general trust credit spreads are around 5%, which implies a default rate of around 33% over 5 years for investors to still be better off invested in them, current default rates are tiny around 1%
  19. 19. UNLISTED SOES  Listed SOEs have some of the lowest debt levels across all companies – Makes sense as the privatisation / listing process started with the ones that was best managed  Unlisted SOE – GOD HELP THEM… – Restructuring – Government bail out – Local access  Government reform plans shows that those with polluting, excess capacity and low productivity will be allowed to default and close – Myth that Government do not fire people – Civil service reforms in early 1990s resulted in around 50 million people losing jobs before rehired in more efficient industry
  20. 20. FINANCIAL STABILITY REPORT 2014  The Chinese Central Bank ran a stress test on the banks using the following scenario: – 4% GDP growth – Top 3 clients of each bank renege on their contracts – 30% default in developers – 15% default in private residential – Interest rate spread lowers by 100bps – Bad loans rises to 15%
  21. 21. CONCLUSION  Very Cheap  Risky, growth slows down, new consumption model, reforms – In the price already?  Good Diversification  Long term picture more stable
