The CFA Institute, a professional organization composed of global investment professionals, released on the 14th its global investor confidence survey report. It shows that Chinese investors have more confidence in financial services than those in other regions. At the same time, they have higher expectations for investment advisory brand and returns. China’s investors in the category of “fully trust” and “trust” the financial services industry account for as much as 70% of total surveyed (that’s crazy high to me), far exceeding the global share of 44%. The survey also shows that Chinese investors have different perspectives on causes of financial crisis. Similar to global investors, Chinese investors and global investors have the same outlook on the issue of “the likelihood of a financial crisis expected in the next three years.”, around a similar amount of ~38% surveyed. However, they have very different views from global investors on the cause of the crisis. Among them, Chinese investors believe that “real estate” and “cryptocurrency bubble” are the two major causes of the crisis, accounting for 59% and 26% respectively, which is much higher than the 29% and 12% share of global investors. However, only 35% of them believe that the cause would be “national or global policy crisis”, lower than the global 51%.

Second, blockchain technology should not be combined with finance, because from the current market situation, blockchain does not help improve financial efficiency;
Third, if the blockchain is to be applied, it is better to use it in the real economy. For example, it can use its irrevocable features to play a role in artistic and archeaological identification.
