This week’s OnFrontiers #ExpertChat asked three leading experts to identify the next big thing for private equity in Asia. Here’s what they told us. We haven’t seen a huge impact yet from President Trump’s first year. That being said, people are starting to ask questions about anything related to exports. If there are tariffs placed on products coming into the US, what does that do to the economics? There’s the negative side – the downside risk assessment – but there’s also the upside.
Take the bullet train from Shenzhen to Guangzhou and you begin to understand how President Xi Jinping is turning China’s Pearl River Delta into the new Silicon Valley. This gleaming white snake hurtles at 245km (152 miles) an hour across a vast landscape that’s 200 per cent productive – from densely packed office blocks to oxygenated fish farms and giant component factories. Yet current productivity is a fraction of what President Xi has in mind.
Private equity deal value in Asia region has been soaring to new records in the past two years, emboldened by economic reform in China, India and beyond. To help navigate the terrain, OnFrontiers brings a unique 360-degree perspective from private equity experts at the axis of capital flow between China, India and the US:We’re bridging broad time zones here, as we know this live discussion will be as relevant to investors in the US as it will in China and India.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
