The Chinese disruption paradox

17 Oct 2018

Innovative internet companies are highly disruptive and increasingly dominant within the Chinese economy but they are regulated by the Communist Party, which perceives disruption to be a threat to the status quo. In this video update, Charlie Awdry discusses the interesting implications of this dynamic for investing in China.

Key takeaways:

  • Disruption is both an opportunity and a threat in China
  • The Communist Party is the antithesis of disruption; for them, disruption is a threat
  • Innovators within the technology space look well placed to benefit as they disrupt traditional supply chains and customer relationships, becoming more dominant
