Trading Places: the Economic Geography of Asia through its Stock Markets

Herald van der Linde, 9 March 2022

Herald van der Linde looks at Asia through the prism of its stock markets. He’ll examine why and how how they differ from each other, what unique features each stock market has and relate these to the development of the countries concerned, their own history and cultural background.

Herald van der Linde is HSBC’s Chief Asian Equity Strategist. He and his Indonesian wife are based in Hong Kong and Jakarta. Prior to his role as a strategist, he had worked for 20 years in Indonesia, South Africa and Taiwan as an analyst. Herald is trained as an economist and wrote his Master’s thesis in Jakarta. He decided to stay in the city after graduation and made it his home. He is a Certified Financial Analyst (CFA), who speaks seven languages including Bahasa Indonesia. He is also an Associate of the Institute of Wine and Spirits and is a certified lecturer for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust.

Herald spoke to the RSAA about his home city of Jakarta in February 2021.
