    Weekly Bond Update: More female CEOs? Outrageously possible...
    One of Saxo's 2017 Outrageous Predictions is that more women will become CEOs of leading organisations. A look at the bond markets shows several cases where women have driven innovation and charted new courses for corporate giants. It's not always the case, but in our view female CEOs remain undervalued as a corporate asset.

    3 Numbers: Slowdown expected for UK Services PMI
    The UK's services have been enjoying a decent run since Brexit, and there's little proof it has hurt the economy. In the US, services signals are mixed - as are those of employment.

    China to build floating nuclear power station this year

    China Daily
    China will start construction of a floating nuclear power station by the end of this year, a senior corporate executive said. The facility, designed to power offshore oil and gas drilling, island development and remote areas, is scheduled to be put into operation in 2019, said National Nuclear Corporation chairman Sun Qin. The company holds all the intellectual property rights of the floating nuclear reactor, said Sun, a deputy to the National People's Congress, before the opening of the annual legislative session. Currently, China has 30 nuclear power generating units in operation and another 24 units are under construction, all on land.

    Trade with Pyongyang could succeed where sanctions have failed

    South China Morning Post
    North Korea is the only country known to have conducted nuclear tests this century, which points to an unwavering ambition to achieve long-range ballistic nuclear deterrence. The response so far is for more sanctions: the blunt tool that hasn’t proved to work. China is in a quandary. Beijing opposes sanctions that would precipitate a humanitarian disaster. To change North Korea, sanctions are necessary but not sufficient. In addition, Beijing should see fit to give financial fair wind to North Korea’s special economic zones and infrastructural development, particularly those that link up with China. The historian Thucydides reduced human motivation for war to “fear, honour and profits”. His insight can apply to North Korea’s belligerence.

    Calls grow louder for Fed to give September a miss
    As the September 17 deadline approaches, more informed voices say the Federal Reserve Bank should not hike in September - the world economy, most notably China, is not ready for it. All the same, there have been positive readings on job openings which have added muscle to the hawks’ argument for a September tightening.
