Interviews

Interview Title: the biggest risk of QE is the substantial growth of debts
Interview Date: 31-10-2014
Interview Link: http://www.aetoscg.com/en/company-news-content.html?id=81
Interview Description:
On 31st October, Mr. Mike Thomas, Senior Vice President of AETOS Capital Group and City Councilor of the Hills Shire, Australia, was invited for interviews by various known financial media in Shanghai, and talked about the hot topics in market on US Fed flagging the end of the quantitative easing (QE) programs, and the expected results in raising interest rates.

Mr. Mike Thomas said that QE removed financial barriers which should not be removed. To some extent, the QE used to save the financial markets that was lacking in liquidity during the financial crisis in 2008, while at the same time, the QE that lasted for 6 years, has made the Fed's balance sheet expansion nearly $4 trillion, which left the biggest risk to cause a substantial increase in the size of the Fed's debt and make it unsustainable.

Mike Thomas pointed out that in this era of economic globalization, any move of the United States will affect the global economic situation. With QE, there have been winners and losers. Winners have been the wealthy who have seen the significant increases in the wealth (data showed that in 2014, the number of billionaires has increased by 7%. Their wealth has doubled since 2008). On the other hand, Household disposable assets have seen significant falls in many parts of the world including US.

He continued, "another winner has been government with large deficits. Traditionally, deficits have been constrained by funding and the impact on interest rates."

"Overall, I think any increase in interest rates will be moderate and short-lived", Mike Thomas said.

Talking about the future development of AETOS in China, Mike Thomas stated:"AETOS is a high-growth company, we expect this to continue in the future. We are committed to improving our products and trading platforms to benefit our clients."
