    Basically we have a record of all quotes we make and over 70% are to the UK and nearly all of them are BNO.

    Hey!

    This thread is about anecdotal evidence, not good solid data that is not available elsewhere and just happens to corroborate exactly what most people already think.

    You should delete your comment immediately! I’m sure it’s the type of fact the govt prefers to suppress.

    I hope HK doesn’t start following China’s Covid policies, or there’ll be a lot less dogs to move:

    HK’s medical system no longer run on basis of science, as politics sometimes override science, she said.
    But but but ... free healthcare and all that!

    Multiple units in my large development now appear to be coming on offer at 10% below 2015 asking prices.

    One unit on my floor seems to have been vacant for several months now.

    More than six global banks and at least four asset managers have relocated their headquarters out of the city, including Germany's Commerzbank, according to a tally by Nikkei Asia.

    Noticed that hotel lounge (longer term stays and top tier hotel chain members) seem to swung to slight majority to mandarin vs canto. I'm assuming a lot of coming across the border more easily now.

    Used to be primarily Europeans/westerners and overseas born Chinese and a fair mix of canto.

    Hotel lobby and local streets in North Point - hear a lot of mandarin vs Feb/March. Similar on recent MTR trips (hardly ever took longer MTR trips).

    Similar at Grand Hyatt in Sep, though weekends seems to have much more western expats.

    Marriott Courtyard in SYP -> 3 months in June/July - fair mix of canto and westerners (business hotel, less tourists and staycation).

    ymmv.

    What does that mean? Comer bank obviously never had a headquarter in HK, and there operations were always pretty small.

    If there's one good thing that comes from all this, hopefully it's lower property prices across HK. Half off would be nice.
