is a report from The Economist Intelligence Unit, commissioned by DBS Private Bank to explore the history, dynamics and governance implications as they relate to families of the Chinese diaspora in Asia and their businesses and family offices.

Productive ageing in Hong Kong is a report from The Economist Intelligence Unit, sponsored by HSBC Life.

The report was written by Siddharth Poddar and Shivaji Bagchi, and edited by Naka Kondo. Findings from the survey were supplemented with wide-ranging research and in-depth interviews with experts in the field.

Hong Kong has the world’s longest life expectancy. In 2019, the average life span was 82.4 years for men and 88.2 years for women. How will people spend these additional golden years? Will Hong Kong’s elderly be able to live their lives with dignity and self-respect? The Economist Intelligence Unit, sponsored by HSBC Life, conducted a consumer survey in June 2021 on the state of “productive ageing” in Hong Kong and people’s preparedness for the challenges of and opportunities in life after work.

Branching out: can banks move from city centres to digital ecosystems?

  • As the branch closures of covid-19 accelerate consumer shifts to online banking, 65% of bankers now believe that the branch-based model will be “dead” within five years, up from 35% four years ago, according to new research from The Economist Intelligence Unit.

Poised For A Boom: Financing A More Sustainable Future

The sustainable finance market has grown significantly in the past year. This stems from a range of factors, from the COVID-19 pandemic to the election of a new administration in the US to the development of new financial tools to an increasing consensus around standards for sustainable finance instruments and disclosure of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. It is underpinned by a growing consensus among governments, business, and the public that climate change represents a clear and present threat to human welfare and natural resources, as well as to asset portfolios.
