MSGF Online Seminar – Investment Psychology: Under and after the Covid-19 Pandemic
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM Hong Kong Time

The European Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and HKUST Business School are happy to host a webinar about the impact of COVID-19 pandemic in investment industry.

As the European economies slowly recover from the first phase of the Covid-19 pandemic it seems timely to ask whether the crisis will have long lasting effects on investors and financial markets.

In this seminar, Professor Kasper Meisner Nielsen from Copenhagen Business School and HKUST will give an overview of investment psychology under and after the Covid-19 pandemic. Investment psychology is an area of behavioral finance, which combines insights from economics and psychology to explain why and how investors act and to understand how this behavior affects the market. Understanding the impact of the pandemic on investment psychology is important, because investor psychology is shaped by past exposure to economic and financial crises. Investment psychology also provides helpful guidance to understand how financial markets reacted to the crisis and how the market will react to the reopening of economies.

Webinar – EU Green Deal Introduction and Policy Framework
3:30 - 5:00 PM


The EU Green Deal Policy Framework – Opportunities and Implications for Business in Hong Kong

In late 2019 the European Union issued its first declaration on a new overarching policy framework for all its member countries – the Green Deal. The Green Deal has the potential to reshape both EU and also global policy and to reset our current development paths onto more sustainable trajectories. However, more than a policy, the Green Deal aims to be a vision of a better future and could prove a blueprint for anyone looking to adopt long-term planning to combat the environmental and social pressures that threaten to derail future prosperity and quality of life in our societies.

EuroCham’s Environment and Energy Business Council (EEBC) warmly welcomes you to join us in this first in a series of webinars and events that will aim to dig down into the different aspects of the EU Green Deal. This first webinar will have a look at the overall policy framework followed by a moderated Q&A session open to your questions.

The next webinar will be held in a few weeks and focus on the financial aspects of the Green Deal.

Guest Speaker:

Mr. Sébastien Paquot, Head of Section, Counselor Climate and Environment, EU Delegation to China

Is there a recipe to represent European business interests as a whole, or do we need to limit ourselves to the smallest common denominator? What can we expect from the EU Commission and national governments, in particular from Germany’s presidency of the Council of the European Union in the second half of 2020? Is there a realistic chance for a comprehensive EU-China investment agreement? Lots of issues to be discussed!

The share of people at risk of poverty or social exclusion has decreased to pre-crisis levels.

Of course, the transition period currently under negotiation would give you more time to adapt. However, certainty about the transition will only come at the end of the process, with the ratification of the withdrawal agreement by both sides –probably early next year.
