Global Economic Trends
In the current macroeconomic environment, the market has already fully absorbed the anticipated two interest rate hikes, implying that investors have anticipated and adjusted to possible monetary policy adjustments. This anticipation has weakened the impact of interest rates on the market, thereby suggesting that the market may have reached a turning point. There is a high probability that the global economy will experience a soft landing, meaning that although economic growth may slow down, a sharp recession is unlikely to occur. This view is primarily based on in-depth analysis of multiple key economic indicators, including the performance of the labor market, the strength of consumer confidence, the direction of monetary policy, and global trade dynamics.
In the economic cycle of June, 70% of the investment portfolio companies of the Tengyun Global Growth Equity Fund exceeded expected returns. These data only cover stocks released in the recent reporting period. As the performance of most companies aligned with our expectations, the liquidity of the portfolio remains relatively stable.
Companies in the renewable energy sector continue to drive the market to new highs. Market information indicates that as of June 30, six automakers, including Volkswagen, Ford, General Motors, Rivian, Volvo, and Polestar, have announced their adoption of Tesla’s charging standard, encompassing both traditional automotive giants and emerging vehicle manufacturers. Furthermore, companies like Stellantis, Mercedes-Benz, and Hyundai are also considering or evaluating the adoption of this standard. As a result, Tesla is expanding the influence of its charging infrastructure and replacing the officially promoted Combined Charging System (CCS) in practical operation. Tesla’s NACS standard surpasses CCS in both the number of charging stations and charging speed, offering a significant competitive advantage and making it more likely to win the favor of new energy vehicle users. This news has had a positive impact on the new energy industry, with Tesla leading the way and the industry expected to continue to shine in the future.
