Christopher Choa sees the market characterized by a great deal of uncertainty, not only local issues such as BREXIT in the UK but issues around trade imbalances embargoes. People are conscious of the rise of China and are trying to understand how they position themselves to take advantages of the opportunities but, at the same time, protect themselves from technology-led disruption. “There’s a part of my business that sees a great deal of defence needed to protect against disruption but also, how to take advantage of the opportunities and the benefits that may accrue if you have a longer-term vision about how you want to grow your company and take advantage of the change”
