Millennials Need To Start Taking Real Estate Seriously ft. Raymond Ho, Eugenia Leung

We’re back at it again with our second Insights episode with Raymond and Eugenia! Instead of focusing on the overall scene in Toronto, we double down on investment tactics for millennials. The effects of the pandemic have been felt worldwide. In some cases, individuals and businesses alike have suffered massive setbacks, but in many others, opportunities have sprung forth. How has the real estate industry fared?

In Canada, the younger generation has been spurred by lowered interest rates, and high savings, to purchase housing. 25% of millennials flocked to purchase a new property in the last year alone! Even now, a housing poll conducted by The Bank of Nova Scotia shows that 40% of millennials are pelting towards home ownership (while interest rates last). But Raymond and Eugenia preach caution. In their extensive career, they have come to realise the value of portfolio planning. They are huge proponents of wealth accrual through smart property purchases spread out through many years, instead of spending all your cash on one big buy.

Raymond touches on the importance of “positioning” and how one should think of purchasing property as a 30 or 40-year long game. Eugenia gives a practical demonstration of their approach through a client case and breaks down how one could make smart investments by looking into different types of homes and locations. So sit back, relax and let’s catch some industry gems together. Listen closely for some very clever tips and suggestions if you’re interested in growing your own wealth through investment and real estate!

The Secrets of Smart Investment & Real Estate with Larry Hung

The last decade, and even more so the past year, has seen a shift in global markets. In Hong Kong, technology has become a pervasive force in all industries, especially in Real Estate with the rise of PropTech. Decreased geographical mobility and increased work flexibility lead to changes in business practices and modes of operation in industries. Furthermore, an increased presence of regulators and a mandate for high corporate transparency unsettled local markets. With all these trends intersecting, it’s hard to untangle from it a general theme to which investors can orientate themselves. Hence today, we sit down with a man that has been at the centre of the local investment scene for a while now – Larry Hung.

In an episode rich with insightful details, Larry discusses both his past as well as his future insights into what the future of Hong Kong’s investment scene could turn out to be. He tells us how he approaches investment – which is not merely as a simple exercise of crunching numbers, but rather involves an accurate intuition of the ground situation informed through conducting site visits, talking to multiple parties and going to the very depth of each and every case. He outlines his approach so that he can avoid all the traps that await unsuspecting investors.

Larry also ponders on the rise of technology, PropTech, and how these new elements are here to stay. Rather than merely be a witness to these oncoming changes, Larry suggests professionals and laymen alike to capture the opportunities afforded by the changing fabric of the workspace and business life. The current market volatility and tension can be off-set by proper planning and usage of the tools available to everyone! In the marketplace, things are constantly shifting and the management of each business must follow suit by adapting and overcome obstacles while taking advantage of sweet opportunities.

In the next episode, Larry will discuss his advice for millennial investors, as well as divulge his thoughts on education and family.

▶ About the Guest

Larry Hung is the Co-CIO of Centaline Wealth Management. He runs a hedge fund and a bunch of discretionary accounts which focus on three main sectors – TMT, discretionary consumption and healthcare. He is value and growth-oriented, and a true long-term focus investor. Larry started the investment brand Oceanic with his partner Michael Kan in mid-2017. The company formed a Joint-Venture like structure with Centaline in late 2019. Recently, he launched a global mandate hedge fund that aims to run a concentrated portfolio with no more than 15 holdings, with a target to achieve “home run” returns for investors. Larry and his team are now accepting inflows and expect the fund to trade in mid-Oct.

How to Promote Properties & High-Stakes Businesses with Lucie Wong

In this Lens episode, we sit down with Lucie Wong from MOVE Partners – a specialised marketing agency targetting high-stakes businesses such as real estate companies. 

We discuss how her company came about and quiz her on the differences between FMCGs (Fast-Moving Consumer Goods) and high-stake products. Lucie explains that FMCGs items are everyday items that usually involve emotional buying and marketing, citing Coca Cola as an example. Products sold by high-stake businesses usually involve a thorough and logical decision-making process where a customer has to understand the goals and risks of their investment. She highlights how companies must take different approaches depending on the kind of product they sell. 

While many decisions are dependent on each business situation, Lucie has three general tips for promoting properties and high-stake business

Consider to:

> Understand the Impact of Your Product

> Focus on Content: Articulate a Boring Product Creatively

> Focus on Media Buy

Lucie doubles down on the importance of using media to persuade potential buyers and provides important strategies to advertising more effectively. She suggests talking to customers (never skip this step) and keeping track of every single piece of data. She acknowledges that some firms may harbour concerns when trying Avante-Garde advertising methods, and advises them to never spend money on an inexperienced team or bad advertising idea.

Grab your notebook, find a pen and settle in for a watch to catch the deeper nuances of Lucie’s experience.
