our guest joins us on set here in london. all trying to work out just how much donald trump is going to stick to some of the things he promised during the campaign versus changing tack. this is massive for investors. what have you learned so far? incredibly more reasonable. i'm very encouraged by this. becomee that he will more and more market friendly. and the movement of we've seen in equities reflects that. what about government bond yields? they've been hovering at 2.31%. the inflation trade is really on. what is your view on that? >> the momentum carries us forward. we've seen a reasonable performance yesterday, for example.
i think it is coming through. it was coming through with or without trump. anna: i want to show you this chart. this was pointed out this morning, 2016, ending the drought of synchronized record highs. about how the major for indices had reached these record highs at the same time, like nothing we've seen since the 1990's. it used to be common for these indices to move in tandem, and then something changed. it didn't happen for 15 years or so. 2016,t the end of suddenly something grips the market enough for it all to move in sync. i remember it well as i started in 1987.

dollar. in december and probably to next year. yousef: isn't that a bit conservative? especially if the fiscal stimulus comes through. >> let's see who gets on the board. who joins the presidential seat. we could see them get more aggressive on interest rates. they may not need to do more than two. >> let's pick up on that. this is the one your implied policy rate change. still shy of pricing in two h ikes within a year. despite all the talk of what donald trump's economic policies might mean, it seems that traders are reluctant to price even 50sis points, not
basis points within the year being priced in, despite all the talk. moved so far, so fast, you need to posit reset and clear out some of the stale positions. it could go further. yousef: how much further does the dollar have to go from here? it's very sensitive to any trade deficit indicators. quite keen on the strong dollar. at repatriation of this 1.4 5 trillion dollars that is overseas in bringing that back, and may not be a bad place for him to be.

market. do we know any further details beyond that? manus: they have tempted our appetite. standard and poor has raised the credit limit on egypt from negative to stable. this is a finance minister who's looking for a bit of fair went .o get in there >> we were planning to do it by the end of new member but there has been volatility since the election that has taken place, maybe because of the change in philosophy and the plan of the president elect. we are still trying to do it, maybe next week. december,ond week of
markets will either be quiet of this. how do i participate in the future of egypt? market --on is the the money in the market right now. how much more will we see for next year? >> it depends on the development of one thing like how much investment will come into the , but we will come to the markets. 5 billion, 10 billion? we can't have a number like that between now and 2017. removal of fuel
subsidies and raising interest rates, that's a lot to handle for one country in one market. what's the latest progress report from the ground in egypt? look at the equity market, one that best best-performing equity markets in the world. currency is one of the cheapest in the world. there's no doubt about it, the market is testing the level at the finance ministers they don't talk about currency. has beatens report what they thought they could do within 20 days. resultseedback and the are very encouraging in terms of returning the foreign currency theet and having it in market that was very harming to the economy. so the results so far are very positive.
he's a finance minister that turned up on time with a huge entourage. they haven't got the $2.5 , is my from the chinese interpretation thus far. they are working on it. it's an ambitious program. is whatyour money out global national investors want to know. $900 million has been bought. i'm told a lot of that is new money. manus cranny, thank you very much. take care of your portfolio. we mention the function as we went into that conversation, monitoring what currencies have

egyptitics are stable in for a change, i think that is great. you have to look at the global investor and think about emerging markets. egypt has been one of these countries that has been reengineering itself. a shift in ratings agencies is really important for them. there's so much else going on that right now, avoiding too much on emerging markets is probably the right paying. just today i don't have a lot of exposure in emerging markets. but it will be coming back through, certainly. up next, planning for the future. -- italy's your
we need to take about what is happening in italy. a strategy update today. the company plans to reduce headcount and exit from less profitable markets to increase efficiency. the ceo spoke to our francine lacqua. >> it's mostly because of the interest rates. 15 years ago, i've been turning around the life insurance company in japan. the same low interest scenario. it's difficult to understand how and when you get out of this kind of scenario. so our assumption is we have to live with it and this is why we , to adapt the company, to live in this new low rate environment.
a cautious assumption is that is going to last. markets seem to believe donald trump will reflate the and the bonds have already started changing a little bit. yetaybe, we don't know because we don't know exactly because his economic program was not that clear. so we still have to understand what's going to happen. stateseless, the united is one thing, europe is another thing. ofis not the president europe, he's the president of the united states. obviously the growth is quite slow in europe. which also has an impact especially on the property and casualty business. this is why the competition is
strong and the growth of the premium is very small. >> do expect the more fiscal spending in europe as well? speaking, i don't really know. >> if you look at the situation in italy, are you discounted in terms of your share price because you are seen as an italian company and there is a referendum coming up? >> yes we are, definitely. connected toce is the insurance industry index, which is discounted. italian index, which is also discounted. one for the sector and the second for the country. , the expectedtaly result of the referendum from december 4, nobody knows what
will be the result. that, quite optimistic. you have to be optimistic and cautious at the same time, so i am boat. we don't know what's going to happen. my view is that anywhere in italy, the reforms have to continue. i think that politics is something that can accelerate or slow down the reform, but at the end, reforms will be cheap as they have to. >> why is there a discount for the industry? >> it's mostly because of the low interest rate which definitely has an impact on the earnings of the companies. and then the regulations, to
comply with this regulation creates lots of new constraints. i think the regulation should be a little bit more flexible. ago we had issues in the banking industry, there was not enough regulation. we need regulation and we need good regulation. it should not prevent the to be a bit more entrepreneur. and we to do business need to be entrepreneurs. sometimes because of the regulation, we cannot be entrepreneurs anymore and i think maybe it to change a little bit. >> do you think it will change? what would be the catalyst?
lobbying? what needs to happen? some variation in the u.s. could be a catalyst. constant constructive dialogue with regulators. they listen to us and we listen to them. sometimes we like them to listen a bit more to us, but anyway, a constructive ilog. constructive dialogue. designsthe company that semiconductors, you're looking at fourth-quarter revenue coming in at 1.60 8 billion euros. the estimate was for 1.60 9 billion euros. adjustedh-quarter eps coming in at .21. a very narrow miss on the eps

authority finances infrastructure. this mechanism has been in place for quite some time in the u.k.. can you just flip a button and change overnight? >> legal changes have to be made. uk's can do it if you are the owner of the land. but about 9 billion pounds a year goes to profit for landowners. yousef: the numbers you are suggesting are impressive and they go further than anything that's being proposed, from the initial indicators that we have. if you could annually raise 9 billion each year but up to 180 billion, the u.k. is expected to
invest about 1.7 percent in gdp per annum. 3.5% for animal is recommended. anna: we know what the big business lobby is expecting. all the spending decisions we have alluded to, those are the constraints. thans have been better many expected. i have a chart that talks about the brexit deficit forecast. it certainly the expectation that is out there. >> hammon with his comments are
absolutely correct. gdp now.ose to 90% investors start worrying about it as well. financing everything he wants to do is going to be tough. the indications we've had -- anna: if you bar is to invest in infrastructure, will the markets treat that differently? >> it's there on the government's balance sheet. hook forstill on the it. thomas's idea is a very interesting one. i would love to see it happen. the transfer of wealth would go on. yousef: that's the nail on the head right there.
what is your base case for this? >> with the yield shifting up in the u.s., it will be hard for the u.k. to resist that move. we've clearly got inflation coming through from lower cable rates. inflation is coming through anyway. i think we see higher yields, but today we make it a pause in that as people realize he just doesn't have the flexibility to push forward. one comment said the statement is obvious. you sound almost set up to be disappointed, given your grand plan that you have in mind.
is this just all tinkering are windowdressing? >> it's just scratching the surface. ,he longer this goes on productivity is such a big issue. were not going to see the growth we need to pay down the debt and drive up real incomes of people. yousef: what about other components? looking at the minimum wage being raised. what are the takeaways from that? >> we been squeezing these just to make money. about putting things in place. all that is exactly what he needs to do. the market has to believe that it. we need to see some kind of action.
they said is not about picking the winners. six or seven new reports will be written. continuationt of but we haven't seen any meat on the bone yet. anna: thank you for joining us this morning. i will be in westminster monitoring the developments around 12:30 p.m. u.k. time. later i will speak with the u.k. business editor. coming up on the show, a monster move. we speak about the global recruiters u.s. strategy.

u.s.. when you hear what you've heard so far from doll trunk, does it make you want to invest more are pulled back for a bet -- for a bit, or you don't know enough to make a decision? >> we don't do upfront investments. as a traveler, i think the infrastructure needs to be improved in the u.s. bringing jobs back to the u.s., we will see. having said that, funny enough, it's already quite difficult to find people in the u.s.. in certain regions it's quite tough to find people. i don't hear him talk about that, but that could be an issue, i think. yousef: how concerned are you about continuing the spread around the rest of the world, especially europe? >> what we saw with brexit was a huge reaction on share price.
we saw the u.k. economy already slowing down of it in 2015 and after brexit, that trend just continued. on the one hand, it's good for our business. if clients just want to take it slow. anna: what is the latest on the brexit front, for a company such t1 as you suggest, you're all for moving staff away from london. >> i said if staff moves away from london, we are going to be there. that's not a problem for us. so far we see a little bit of shift away from permanent placements and a little more to tim, which is logical. yousef: what about the financial companies?
are you seeing more interests in moving businesses away from london? toward much more a move digitization, and all the layoffs we see now is nothing to do with the economy, but with the shifting business processes. we've heard that from those who are going into some countries without any kind of infrastructure and offering a very digital product. structural changes more of a driver for you than anything around short-term growth prospects. >> our clients are increasingly -- everybody is looking for the same people. i.t. skills and technology skills. and they should come from outside of europe. we can navigate with our clients on how to get them. you taking a
