10:00 pm
david: we're still up for the week equity wise, the dollar had a massive drop in october and it comes down to the job numbers and what that tells us were market should go. softeningata showing but they expect the gm strike may have affected those numbers so that is what we are looking for. manufacturing data was weaker than expected and we had the interest rate cut. market wise, a bit of red, a bit of green. it is pretty much a mixed bag. againstor the hang seng the storm clouds which are above us at the moment with regards to the economy. a dismal showing on the gdp rate for hong kong, show we are for a technicalrmly in recession.
10:01 pm
gold isset classes, definitely a risk being taken off the table. gold as the month and it had its fifth month of gains this year out of six. gold may be down a fraction at the moment but we seen quite a rise, 1.7% up in the last three days. yen,. strengthening. lurchingar index lower, the 10 year yield unmoved by the price action and the price of money as it goes down. without further ado, let's look at this listing. esr making its debut in hong kong after raising $1.6 billion. exchange to the stock were sophie is standing by with someone important from the company. ie: jeff pearlman, the
10:02 pm
chairman of esr came in. certainly a day to celebrate. shares popping more than 5%. esr group from a 2016 merger to become two of asia's fastest growing warehouse providers. that was japan's redwood group. pretty much a fast growing story toward today's ipo. let's get more on the story of esr. congratulations. shares popping at the start of trading. why after the delay in june? >> thanks for having me. end up sandwiched between geopolitical and macro events you can't control and we felt june wasn't the right time. on the back of some positive traction with budweiser, top
10:03 pm
sports, and other and frankly the fact that a lot of the public market investors are coming to us saying we want to see this as a public company, that gave us the conviction to come back to the market and so far, so good. sophie: in hong kong, esr doesn't have a footprint. >> hong kong to be an interesting market for us. an exchanget as because this business is 100% can asia and the business we want to focus on in the region so we felt with a sizable presence in china, hong kong was the logical listing venue for the company. sophie: given china's markets, do you see more boom there? what is the near-term outlook? around thenoise trade war, our business has probably been a net beneficiary of what has been happening. in this calm -- e-commerce companies continue to grow. sophie: slowing economy?
10:04 pm
>> could have seen it -- we haven't seen it. consumer confidence could get in the realm of impacting, but we have seen a lot of production has shifted, it is a lower labor cost market in southeast asia so local governments have turned to esr to redevelop many dormant factories which we can turn into best in class e-commerce logistics. while it has raised uncertainty in the market, it has been a net benefit. sophie: what does that mean for acquisition pipeline, southeast asia? you've been aggressive in japan and australia. jeffrey: right now, we are in six markets that represent 80% of gdp in asia. if you look at the next frontier for the company, a market the size of southeast asia, 650 million people stands out to us. many tenants are operating out of there, capital partners want exposure to it, so on the next frontier as we think about
10:05 pm
future markets. sophie: recent acquisitions have been diluted for esr, so what are the prospects for earnings growth going forward? jeffrey: going forward, this is a nascent asset class. on a per capita basis, even in a market like china, it is 1/6 of that in the united states. e-commerce as a percentage of total retail sales, markets like japan that everyone said the gadgets of the world and every thing, japan is less than 10%. intoink we can go deeper our existing six markets and we think growth quite sustainable over the longer term. sophie: in which of those markets are you seeing challenges emerge? jeffrey: look, there's also -- always day-to-day challenges when you are acquiring land and developing projects but overall, we like each of the markets we are in for a bunch of reasons. china, india, the long-term growth trajectory is very nascent. evenre mature markets --
10:06 pm
in japan, the total transformation of the value chain for modern logistics. this is on the back of the rise of e-commerce. sophie: which segment of your business do you see generating the most income growth? investment, fund management, or development? jeffrey: we are a developer at heart but we overlay that with the asset model through the fund management business. this has allowed us to grow in excess of peers and provide higher return on equity's. are a prospect for the fund management business and capital is flowing now to asia and real estate and logistics, investors are underexposed to the sector. many are cycling out of retail and off the back of the working space so we feel we are well positioned to grow the fund management business going forward. sophie: what do you see in the retail space, more signs of stress, we are seeing that on the mainland. what indicators does that provide for you?
10:07 pm
jeffrey: have to our tenants are e-commerce clients or third-party logistics partners. even the we see brick-and-mortar retailers having more business go online. they may be shifting some of their warehousing space from the bricks and mortar to the e-commerce and the warehouse may look like an amazon warehouse, so we are happy on both sides of the equation. the reality is, consumption is growing in markets like china, india, and elsewhere and that is where we are focused. our business is 99% domestic consumption driven, so we want to continue to play on those trends. sophie: will there be a dividend further down the line? jeffrey: we don't want to speculate right now, but this is a business that over time, some global peers have paid dividends and at the end of the day, investors are always thinking about and wanting a dividend so it is something we will keep in mind overtime. sophie: jeffrey perlman of dara:

10:13 pm
>> the current -0.1% rate affects just some of the money supply in japan, for as the proportion affected in europe is bigger. if necessary, it is possible in japan to deepen the negative rate. is not that the boj can't cut the rate steeper than -0.1%. removing the timeframe from the forward guidance clarifies the boj's stance of commitment to easy policy. we are ready to take necessary action if price momentum toward the target is affected. david: just in case you didn't know who that was, that was japan governor kuroda with the decision out of the boj thursday. rishaad: to tokyo, stephen engle is standing by with the man dubbed mr. yen. he has a target of ¥100 and the dollar fairly soon. i wonder if he is holding to the.
10:14 pm
stephen: let's ask him. its bring in our guest. we are pleased to be in his office. the formero much, vice minister of finance here in japan. we heard from kuroda yesterday. off on policyng changes for now but he said there is room to cut rates further. do you see the need to ease further? we are already in negative rates. if the economyk deteriorates somewhat from the current 1%, i think easing of monetary policy is necessary and i think what corroded thinks, satisfied with the current state of the japanese economy so he is not losing at this moment. stephen: are you satisfied with the state of the economy?
10:15 pm
he seemed to highlight external factors as being causes for concern on momentum toward the 2% inflation target which we are so far away from. eisuke: 2% inflation target is something we could never reach. the target for an inflation rate was really high but right now, it is a period of disinflation everywhere, not only just japan. although corroded still has a 2% target, he doesn't really mean it anymore. stephen: why not scrap it? he will just leave it there as it is. domestically, it seems the economy has whether the increase from 8% to 10%. there is not a lot of clamoring ssent, that there have been countermeasures from the authorities to buffer the impact on the economy.
10:16 pm
do you think the japanese economy is doing all right? that's his assessment right now. eisuke: i think so. 0.9, arate is at 0.8, little below 1%. since the 1990's, the average rate of growth is about 1%, so we are cruising at that rate at this moment. i think kuroda is not the satisfied with it and i think it is all right. stephen: where will the shocks come from if he needs to pull out the last error from the quiver and cut further? what would be the catalyst? place inhock may take the u.s.-china trade frictions, and some slowdown of the chinese ofnomy, and some sort ingitical turmoil involv north korea. some confusion from the external
10:17 pm
but i'm notome in, that much worried about it, either. stephen: kuroda said the negative rates in japan do not affect the broader economy as much as in europe. would you agree with that assessment? the banks would not agree with that assessment. the commercial banks do not want a further cut to the negative rate. eisuke: yeah, but we have not had any conspicuous sort of negative result as a result of the bank of japan policy. says iswhat kuroda pretty much what we have experienced. stephen: s&p is warning the regional banks will see operating profits by as much as 21% of the boj cuts. eisuke: we do have a problem with the banks in this country. regardless of monetary policy, the policy of the bank of japan, we need to integrate quite a
10:18 pm
number of regional banks. we have too many regional banks at this point. over-banked. i think the bank of japan and japanese authorities are willing to pay out integrate regional economies -- banks, and some integration has already been happening. stephen: when do you think has been the impact on the japanese economy from the height? -- hike? they went from five to eight, now eight to 10%, and usually followed by recession. eisuke: as a percent to 10% has been long anticipated -- 8% to 10% has been long anticipated, so i don't think it has negative results. it has been absorbed in the expectation of the people. stephen: and how about the external situation? would you agree we are in a synchronized global slowdown
10:19 pm
right now, and what happens if global central banks as they are on an easing bias run out of ammunition? than what? kuroda knows about that. eisuke: yeah, but sure. is slowlyl reserve shifting their policy from the gradual slowdown to a different phase, and the ecb would probably follow. the federal reserve. kuroda will continue for some time. stephen: what about fiscal stimulus? continued fiscal option is difficult for japan because we have a huge fiscal deficit already. stephen: yeah. what about the yen? it has been fairly lackluster the last year so, 1.08 and change.
10:20 pm
is it a safe haven still? eisuke: yeah, and i think it will probably move. it will eventually head toward 100. that is my assessment. of inthe economy is sort , itate of somewhat confusing think that has been happening slowly. of bottomuld be sort gradually and it will probably head toward 100. stephen: what is an acceptable rate for corporate japan? one, but we are in competitive valuation. it is -- is 100 acceptable to its japanese exporters? 80 or 90 would be a problem, but 100 is good. stephen: what does it mean for
10:21 pm
abenomics? eisuke: he would not be surprised to see what hundred. stephen: given this global synchronized slowdown come about are the prospects globally for stagflation? if you have the u.s. trade were continue, the impact of brexit, the higher oil shock? is ae: i think stagflation trend. we have low growth rate of about 1% and we have a low inflation of 1%. 1%, 1%. i don't worry about the stagflation. it is the mature state of developed economies. we just kind of -- 1% growth rate is sufficient and i don't

us through exactly what that means. beer demand isn't exactly growing fast. why is he so bullish on these deals? to be thea goal world's number one beer company and that is a fairly ambitious when you look at global players who are very aggressive in terms of buying up brands globally all over the world. there aren't that many available. cases where they are picking up brent -- brands that are being shed by other giant beer makers to avoid antitrust situations are they are buying in other areas. it is a difficult market to assemble new brands into and make them work. this is aer hand, company that has a very strong balance sheet and they know that inand is not growing fast japan at all. it is one of the few major markets where we demand is

declining. they've got to grow somewhere and they are looking overseas for it and they are focusing on other beer premium beer brands. businessthey have done in europe, australia. what has the track record been like with overseas purchases? in the context of japanese overseas deals, the beer deals have done a little better than some others. historically, japanese companies buying other overseas companies have not fared well. lost value in those transactions, but asahi has done well. to brands they bought in europe have done quite well. they have some trouble in china with the brand there that they ended up getting out of after a few years, didn't work out for building up aare
10:46 pm
track record of being able to take in a new brand by integrated, get the market going and make some money on it. going ahead, they have a strong balance sheet so there is a good chance a lot of these deals will work out for them. they don't all have to work out as long as the majority do and they can continue to build. have abrupt -- strong balance sheet, but the rest of the industry does not. they have been leveraged with the businesses they have bought over the years but perhaps they are getting these businesses cheaper. is there evidence of that? dave: there certainly isn't evidence that they are in the buyers position. they also have time on their side. they are not in a big rush to rush into these deals. that ise said a goal fairly ambitious but they haven't put a time frame on that. when there are other beer makers that are looking to raise cash

10:54 pm
out made by disney, we think disney gets in control of the major fox franchises. they will do a great job. my company sells more tickets for disney than anybody else does for disney. we also sell more fox tickets than anyone else does for talks, so we think the merger moon will be good for the hollywood community, good for theaters, but ultimately for moviegoers because there will be great movies coming out. >> one of the big trends we are seeing now is the growth of the online streaming platform. we've got netflix, apple tv on the way. see themment, we don't distributing their products in the big movie theaters. have you had any talks with either of those about getting their producing and getting them onto the big screen? is that something you want in the future? adam: when you say "they don't,"
