APAC Broker-Dealers Outlook Stable on Post-Pandemic Recovery

Fitch Ratings has a stable sector outlook for Asia-Pacific's (APAC) broker-dealer sector covering China, Japan and Taiwan. This is underpinned by our expectation of a post-coronavirus stabilisation in the macro environment and investment activities, along with a potential pick-up in capital market issuance and M&A volumes. Profitability may be challenged by lower trading volumes from a high base in 2020 and unexpected adverse market volatility.

12/11/2020

Fitch Ratings' 2021 rating outlook for Chinese local and regional governments (LRGs) and their related entities remains stable, as the expected increase in debt is already factored into the ratings. We expect the sector to be supported by the country's trajectory for economic recovery. Gradual improvements in the LRGs' fiscal performance should alleviate the impact from higher debt in 2020. We have accounted for such a scenario in our expectations.

The performance of housing markets across the Asia-Pacific (APAC) is likely to vary significantly in 2021, despite a strengthening of macroeconomic indicators. Next year, we expect Australia to see some of the strongest price gains among the 16 markets that we track globally, but prices in Japan are expected to decline by 1%-2%.
