TORONTO, Jan 15, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – It’s a lair fit for Mr. James Bond himself. The long-awaited Bridge Suites (https://concordbridgesuites.com/), Concord’s iconic addition to the Toronto skyline, is finally unveiled. Globally recognized as an architectural feat, the Bridge Suites were built into Parade’s SkyBridge at the foot Canoe Landing Park in Toronto, Ontario and have been a source of curiosity throughout the city – and the world – since inception.

As the country’s highest (and largest) suspended residence, the jaw-dropping Bridge Suites are an engineering and architectural marvel. The 450 tonne, 40 metre structure that took over 14 hours to lift into place is no longer a mystery. Its unique outlook suspended in the sky allows for unobstructed vistas to Lake Ontario in one direction and miles of city views to the other.

“Rarely in a city can you point in the sky and say definitively, ‘I live there,” however, the uniqueness of this residence makes it very hard to miss,” said Isaac Chan, Vice President, Sales and Marketing at Concord Adex. “The Bridge Suites have long sparked intrigue from Torontonians and we’re excited to pull back the curtain and finally give everyone the grand tour of this incredible space.”

The Grand Bridge Suite, listed at $4,550,000, is the largest of the two suites and the only one of two to be publicly offered. It is 4,168 square feet of living space spanning 3 floors including double height living, dining and study.

Under the theme “Reshaping the World Economic Landscape”, the forum will run round the clock across different time zones, examining the current economic landscape and exploring global business opportunities with more than 160 influential policymakers, financial experts, investors, business leaders and economists.

Introducing the highlights of this year’s Asian Financial Forum at today’s press conference are: Duncan Chiu, Executive Director, Hong Kong Venture Capital and Private Equity Association; Patrick Lau, HKTDC Deputy Executive Director; Mary Huen, Chairperson, 2021 Asian Financial Forum Steering Committee and Chief Executive Officer, Hong Kong, Standard Chartered; and Wilson Chow, Global Technology, Media and Telecommunications Industry Leader, PwC [L-R]

Under the theme “Reshaping the World Economic Landscape”, the 14th Asian Financial Forum will be held on 18 and 19 January 2021 (Monday and Tuesday) on a virtual platform. The picture shows one of the sessions at the 13th Asian Financial Forum.

Heavyweight speakers at the AFF’s keynote sessions include Paul Romer, 2018 Nobel Laureate for Economic Sciences and policy entrepreneur, Alexis Ohanian, Co-founder of Reddit and Seven Seven Six, and Luc Julia, Co-creator of Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant. Distinguished guests at various sessions will share insights on a wide range of topics including the global economic outlook, socially responsible and impact investment, the asset and wealth management industry in the post-COVID era, climate change risks and opportunities for the insurance industry.

Mary Huen, Chairperson, AFF 2021 Steering Committee and CEO, Hong Kong, Standard Chartered, said: “COVID has brought unprecedented changes to the world economy, although the development of vaccines will help to address some of the uncertainties. The global economy is being reshaped even as economic and trade activities begin to get back to normal. Corporates need to aggressively embrace the new normal and turbocharge the implementation of transformation, including technology upgrades, to create new opportunities for the financial industry.”

Dr Patrick Lau, HKTDC Deputy Executive Director, said: “We endured a challenging year in 2020, which makes it all the more important for AFF participants to come together to examine the latest market developments and explore innovative solutions and investment opportunities from around the world through the AFF virtual platform. Under the theme ‘Reshaping the World Economic Landscape’, this year’s forum focuses on topics such as sustainable development, impact investment, fintech, 5G, philanthropy, family offices, entrepreneurship and venture capital, and will examine how businesses can turn crisis into opportunity under the new normal. The online forum will cover more than 50 sessions from 8:30am to 10pm, Hong Kong time, allowing people from different time zones to participate.”

First plenary session focuses on reshaping the global economy

The pandemic has hit the global economy hard, and even as the vaccination programme gathers speed the economy is still expected to recover at a slow pace. Whether the world’s economy will continue on its regular cycle or whether there will be a fundamental change brought about by the pandemic is a topic of interest to many, along with the impact of issues such as trade disputes, climate change and technology development. After a special address by Guo Shuqing, Deputy Governor of the People’s Bank of China, Chairman of the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission, on the first morning of the AFF, the plenary session will explore the topic “Reshaping the World Economic Landscape”, with senior officials examining how the financial services sector can contribute to the recovery of the global economy and what opportunities await in the new economic landscape. Among those contributing to the discussion will be Teresa Czerwinska, Vice-President of the European Investment Bank; Pierre Gramegna, Minister for Finance of Luxembourg; Bandar M H Hajjar, President of the Islamic Development Bank Group; and Jin Liqun, President and Chairman of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.

In the face of the global pandemic, many governments employed unconventional financial policies to roll out large-scale fiscal stimulus packages. Speakers at a policy dialogue session themed “Policy Responses to COVID-19” include Ahmed Abdulkarim Alkholifey, Governor of the Saudi Central Bank; Ryozo Himino, Commissioner of the Financial Services Agency of Japan; Martin Raiser, Country Director, China and Mongolia, and Director, Korea of the World Bank; and Nor Shamsiah Mohd Yunus, Governor of the Central Bank of Malaysia. The discussion will focus on the effectiveness of fiscal and monetary policies in supporting growth, and the implications of the increasing use of financial technology from the perspective of regulators.

Panel discussions address broad spectrum of financial issues

As in previous years, the four Panel Discussions will be a key focus of the AFF. In the session titled “Global Economic Outlook”, business leaders from the banking and financial sectors will assess the transformation brought about by the current environment of low interest rates, increased compliance requirements and digital innovation, together with the raft of challenges resulting from the pandemic. The distinguished speakers include Laura Cha, Chairman of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited; Jean Lemierre, Chairman of BNP Paribas; Liu Liange, Chairman of the Board of Bank of China Limited; Urs Rohner, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Credit Suisse Group AG; Jose Vinals, Group Chairman of Standard Chartered PLC; and Wong Kan-seng, Chairman of United Overseas Bank Limited. The panellists will share their thoughts on the outlook for the global banking industry, while considering how banks should respond to regulatory changes and advances in technology.

As socially responsible investment and impact investment gain stronger ground, the pandemic has highlighted the importance of incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into investment decisions, creating long-term value for corporations and generating higher returns for investors. The discussion on “Responsible and Impact Investment” will review the long-term prospects for sustainable investing with a panel that includes Yoshio Hishida, President of Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Asset Management; Amy Lo, Chairman, Executive Committee, Private Wealth Management Association, and Head and Chief Executive, UBS Hong Kong Branch; Jena Raby, CEO of Natixis Investment Managers; Vineet Rai, Founder and Chairman of the Aavishkaar Group; and George H Walker, Chairman and CEO of Neuberger Berman.

The asset and wealth management industry has inevitably been impacted by COVID-19, but while there are challenges to business operations, the pandemic has also given rise to new solutions and practices and the emergence of new perspectives and investment opportunities. The session titled “The Asset and Wealth Management Industry in the Post-COVID Era” will explore the implications of COVID-19 on the asset and wealth management industry, key industry trends in Asia and globally, and how market players can best position themselves in this fast-changing environment. Speakers at the session include Ben Chan, Regional Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (Asia) Limited; Julia Leung, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, Intermediaries, Securities and Futures Commission; Rajeev Mittal, Managing Director, Asia Pacific ex-Japan, Fidelity International; and Francois Monnet, Head of Private Banking North Asia, Credit Suisse AG HK Branch.

Climate change is one of the major emerging risks in the decades ahead and is expected to reshape the structure of the economy in the future, bringing both risks and opportunities to the real economy and the financial sector. The insurance industry is expected to play a key role in facilitating people and businesses to address climate change risks and move towards a sustainable future. In a discussion titled “Climate Change Risks and Opportunities for Insurance”, insurance leaders and experts will look at how the industry is responding to climate change risks and how to capture opportunities for insurance in the transition to a sustainable economy. Panel members include Fabien Jeudy, CEO of Sun Life Hong Kong Limited; Jan Napiorkowski, Global Head Clean Energy and Vice President of Ariel Syndicate of Lloyd’s; James Turner, Group Chief Risk and Compliance Officer of Prudential plc; Lei Yu, CEO, North Asia, and Regional Head of Distribution, Asia Pacific, QBE Asia; and Patrick Zeng, CEO HK & Greater China, Regional Distribution Director Asia Pacific, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE.

Global financial policymakers assess economic prospects

The impact of the pandemic and evolving international geopolitical issues have combined to create uncertainty in the global economy. Over the two days of the AFF, Influential global financial policymakers and business leaders will take part in more than 50 panel sessions. Luminaries including Stephen A Schwarzman, Chairman, CEO and Co-founder of the Blackstone Group; Philippe Brassac, CEO of Credit Agricole SA; Mark E Tucker, Group Chairman of HSBC Holdings plc; Howard Davies, Chairman of the NatWest Group; Zhang Lei, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Hillhouse Capital Management Group; and Antony Leung, Group Chairman & CEO of Nan Fung Group, will explore strategies that can help to address the current financial situation.

Central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) are gaining traction in global markets. As a premier international financial centre and the world’s largest offshore renminbi hub, Hong Kong is well positioned to facilitate the exploration and expansion of CBDCs at the cross-boundary level. In a discussion themed “The Evolving Central Bank Digital Currency Landscape”, panellists will share insights on potential use cases for CBDCs and how Hong Kong’s burgeoning fintech ecosystem can get better equipped for the opportunities that lie ahead.

Micropillar compression for finding heat-tolerant alloys

Avatar

Published

on

Tsukuba, Japan, Jan 13, 2021 – (ACN Newswire) – Metals containing niobium silicide are promising materials that can withstand high temperatures and improve efficiency of gas turbines in power plants and aircraft. But it has been difficult to accurately determine their mechanical properties due to their complex crystal structures. Now, scientists at Kyoto University in Japan have measured what happens at the micro-level when pressure is applied on tiny samples of these materials. The approach, published in the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials, could help scientists obtain the accurate measurements needed to understand the atomic-level behaviour of complex crystals to develop more heat-tolerant components in gas turbines.

The scientists measured the plastic deformation that happened when a tiny probe exerted force on the micropillar specimens with various loading axis orientations.

“Our results demonstrate the cutting edge of research into plastic deformation behaviour in crystalline materials,” says Kyosuke Kishida, the study’s corresponding author.

Plastic deformation describes the distortion that occurs at the atomic level when a sustained force is applied to a crystal. It is difficult to measure in complex crystals. Kishida and his colleagues have been using a new approach to systematically measure plastic deformation in crystals showing promise for use in high temperature gas turbines.

In this study, they measured plastic deformation in a niobium silicide called alpha-Nb5Si3. Tiny ‘micropillars’ of these crystals were exposed to very small amounts of stress using a machine with a flat-punch indenter at its end. The stress was applied to different faces of the sample to determine where and how plastic deformation occurs within the crystal. By using scanning electron microscopy on the samples before and after the test, they were able to detect the planes and directions in which deformation occurred. This was followed by simulation studies based on theoretical calculations to further understand what was happening at the atomic level. Finally, the team compared the results with those of a boron-containing molybdenum silicide (Mo5SiB2) they had previously examined.

“We found that instantaneous failure occurs rather easily in alpha-Nb5Si3, which is in marked contrast to Mo5SiB2,” says Kishida.

This could mean alpha-Nb5Si3 is at a disadvantage compared to Mo5SiB2 for use as a strengthening component in metal-based alloys. Kishida and his team think, however, that this material’s inherent brittleness could be improved by adding other alloying elements.

The team plans to use the approach to study mechanical properties of other crystalline materials with complex structures.
