Hong Kong’s monetary authority is working with the government to issue green bonds in the city in the next financial year, setting a benchmark for companies to issue debt to fund environment-related projects. The move is part of the plan outlined last week by Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor for the government to take the lead in establishing a fixed income market in the city. The government is working with the Chinese government in the development of green financing.
China’s yuan is likely to become one of the world’s strongest currencies, even as concerns mount over slowing growth in the world’s second largest economy, said Andy Seaman, fund manager and partner at British investment firm Stratton Street. Seaman said he was bullish on the outlook because of China’s current account surplus and large net foreign asset positions, though shifts in the nation’s exports should be expected.
Futures signal Hong Kong’s stock market is likely to open higher on Friday, but still end the week relatively flat after all three US major indices retreated overnight. The Hang Seng Index futures spot October contract rose 0.5 per cent, or 130 points, to 28,569 in the pre-trade session on Friday morning, while Hang Seng China Enterprises Index futures eased 0.1 per cent, or 11 points, to 11,499.
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".
