HSI: Hong Kong Skyline Index

Related entries: Consumer Market, Corporate News, General

I have been in Hong Kong for the past couple of days and, between stock market peaks, I was interested to view the Central skyline from the vantage point of the Star Ferry’s unglamorous, but iconic, upper deck.

In addition to the many (relatively) new buildings, such as the giant International Finance Centre, a more subtle development seems to be taking place on the rooftops – a very unscientific visual check identified three mainland consumer brands among the usual neon names – Gome, Haier, and TCL.

My own Hong Kong Skyline Index of mainland brands may not yet have reached the heights of the Hang Seng Index, I suspect that more mainland brands will be outbidding their long-established foreign rivals for Hong Kong’s real estate roofs in the near future.
