We are looking forward to further enhancing ACF and helping to contribute to the advancement of the sector's capabilities."
Kwan continues; "The recent COP26 meetings highlighted a global effort to address this crisis - international collaboration and partnerships are critical to establish plans, and to take action against the consequences of climate change.

We're sure that the new ownership will be highly positive for the long-term future of ACF, and we're grateful to all the loyal supporters, sponsors and exhibitors who have been with us for the past eight years; we look forward to continuing to work with them as well as MMI in future."

HONG KONG, Jan 24, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Global X ETFs, a leading global provider of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), today announced its market outlook for 2022. With peak liquidity reached, Global X ETFs expects the market to pay closer attention to fundamentals as markets are likely to be more selective in 2022. On the other hand, the convergence of several disruptive technologies such as robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), mobility, digital economy as well as blockchain, is creating unprecedented opportunities.
Updated guidance and sentiments from the US Federal Reserve on inflation expectations and the speed and trajectory of tapering and interest rate increases are likely to dominate sentiment in equity and fixed income markets. Inflation is likely to remain elevated until mid-2022 while supply chains normalize.
The Omicron variant adds a new wrinkle in the fight to control the virus, and may dominate market sentiment in the near term. The risk associated with Omicron may help dampen the demand-driven portion of inflation while exacerbating supply chain challenges.
Jon Maier, Chief Investment Officer, Global X ETFs said: "Income investors should be prepared for higher rates and inflation, a scenario that makes lower duration assets and real assets more attractive. Equity markets will likely be more selective in 2022 with a focus on valuations, fundamentals and quality."
Jay Jacobs, Head of Research & Strategy at Global X ETFs, commented: "Spurred by rising labor costs and disruptive supply chains, disruptive industries such as robotics and AI could reach an inflection point in 2022. At the same time, the emergence of the metaverse and a new generation of consumers with distinct preferences are rapidly changing the way we live, spend, travel and the demand for immersive experiences via the digital economy."
Global X ETFs' landmark research report Charting Disruption ( https://tinyurl.com/2p87w2mu ) seeks to help navigate this landscape of accelerating change. The ETF provider has identified what it believes are among the most critical developments for 2022 and beyond. The identified themes present where the accelerated long-term investment opportunities lie.
The following key insights emerged:
-- Robotics & AI: The industrial robotics industry is set to more than double from 2020 to 2030, from $16 billion to $37 billion, as companies look to accelerate automation in manufacturing and logistics.
-- Blockchain: Digital currencies* could more than triple in market capitalization by 2030, reaching $10 trillion, as adoption broadens.
-- Mobility: The number of EV charging stations could increase more than 7x due to the implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, addressing two of consumers' top three hesitations about EVs: concerns about range and the hassle of charging.
-- Digital Economy: Today's relatively niche market for augmented reality, virtual reality and mixed reality products could grow 9.6x to over $296 billion by the end of 2024, helped by growing use cases, content and technological advancements.
