Mediktor Acquires Sensely and Consolidates Its Position as a Leader in AI Healthcare Solutions

BARCELONA, Spain and SAN FRANCISCO, June 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mediktor, the leading digital healthcare company, has announced the acquisition of Sensely, a San Francisco-based digital healthcare provider that pioneered an empathy-driven conversational platform to support hospital systems and insurance services with world-class member engagement.

Adam Odessky and Cristian Pascual

The merger creates one of the largest global providers of AI-based solutions in the healthcare ecosystem. The new organisation will be driven by an enriched conversational healthcare platform to help increase efficiency and reduce costs through its complementary technologies, including the company’s AI medical assistant.

By joining forces with Sensely, we will be able to offer a leading, best-in-class AI solution to multiple companies, ultimately improving access to healthcare for millions of people,” said Cristian Pascual, Chief Executive Officer of Mediktor.

We’re excited to share Mediktor’s vision of becoming a leading player in an evolving and competitive digital healthcare environment.

Surge in Foreign Interest in Chinese Investments: EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd CEO David Barrett Shares Insights with Yi Cai

David Barrett, CEO of EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd, shares insights with Yi Cai on the surge in foreign interest in Chinese investments. He explores the factors driving major investors to Chinese markets and offers his outlook on their future growth.

LONDON, June 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — David Barrett, CEO of EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd, recently shared his insights on the burgeoning interest in Chinese investments during an in-depth interview with Yi Cai. Barrett explored the factors driving major investors toward Chinese markets and offered his outlook on the future of these investments.

David Barrett, CEO of EBC Financial Group (UK) Ltd, as one of the speakers on Yi Cai's Chief Strategy Forum on Chinese investment opportunities

Surge in Foreign Interest

In recent months, there has been a notable increase in foreign interest in Chinese stocks, driven by high-profile investors. Michael Burry, well-known for his predictions during ‘The Big Short,’ has significantly raised his investments in and Alibaba. Similarly, David Tepper’s hedge fund has heavily invested in technology and Chinese markets. This growing interest is reflected in the performance of the Nasdaq Golden Dragon China Index, which surged by 14.86% from April 22 to May 3, achieving its largest two-week gain since January 2023. On May 16, the Index closed up by 2.49%, marking its highest level since September 2023.

Barrett attributes this renewed interest to the relative value Chinese markets offer. “Chinese indexes have struggled since the property-led bust in 2021, causing a significant dip in foreign direct investment and domestic confidence. However, this has led to extreme pricing discrepancies, making Chinese stocks an attractive option for value-focused investors,” Barrett explained. “Investors like Burry and Tepper are known for their strategic focus on high-concentration portfolios, and their significant investments in Chinese companies signal strong confidence in the potential upside of these markets.”

Future Prospects of Chinese Investments

Looking ahead, Barrett remains optimistic about the continued growth of Chinese markets. “There are several indicators suggesting that the Chinese government is taking effective measures to stimulate economic growth and restore market confidence,” Barrett noted. “Efforts to support vulnerable areas of the economy, encourage domestic investments, and stabilize the financial landscape are beginning to show positive results.”

He emphasized the crucial role of domestic policy in sustaining this growth. “Policies aimed at reducing property-related risks, supporting the semiconductor industry, and encouraging state-owned enterprises to strengthen their financial positions are essential. Additionally, initiatives to increase dividend payouts among Chinese companies are likely to attract more foreign investors seeking yield in a higher interest rate environment.”

Promising Sectors and Global Asset Allocation

Barrett highlighted the technology sector as a key area for investment within the A-share and Hong Kong stock markets. “Chinese tech companies are at the forefront of innovation, and with substantial government backing, they are well-positioned to navigate global challenges,” Barrett asserted. “For instance, if China faces headwinds in purchasing semiconductors, they have the capability to develop their own. Given the impressive profit margins seen in companies like NVIDIA, there is a strong incentive for Chinese firms to produce competitive, lower-cost chips. With significant government support and investment, the resilience and growth potential in this sector are considerable.”

He also identified the electric vehicle (EV) industry as a promising sector. “EVs as a topic has been grabbing a lot of column inches of late,” Barrett observed. “However, it’s uncertain how well Western brands will perform in mainland China, and vice versa, how Chinese brands will fare in the global market. Despite these challenges, Chinese tech remains on the cutting edge, and any progress, especially amid geopolitical tensions, will likely bolster domestic investment. This increased focus on local innovation and development will enhance the industry’s growth prospects.”

From a global perspective, Barrett advises a diversified asset allocation strategy, cautioning against overreliance on US stocks. “While US markets have experienced substantial growth, it is crucial to consider opportunities elsewhere, such as in China, where valuations are compelling,” he explained. “Given the recent run-up in US stocks, there is a need to be cautious and diversify. Commodities like gold remain attractive as a store of value and a hedge against economic and geopolitical uncertainties. As central banks continue to manage liquidity and interest rates, maintaining a balanced portfolio that includes undervalued international assets and tangible commodities could provide stability and growth potential.”

Orange Middle East and Africa strengthens its social and environmental commitment by involving its employees through the Engage for Change program

CASABLANCA, MOROCCO – EQS Newswire – 5 June 2024 – For several years now, Orange Middle East and Africa (OMEA) ( has been taking concrete action to reduce its environmental impact.

A collective commitment for a lasting impact

Climatic events, societal upheavals and changing work patterns have created a pressing need for reference points and meaning among citizens, and our employees are no exception. We firmly believe that employee engagement is an essential key to meeting these challenges. The Orange Engage for Change program enables each employee to devote three working days a year to projects with a societal impact.

A platform to mobilize and inspire

It is accessible to all Orange Group employees to volunteer, and to the general public for a better understanding of our commitments. This multi-country initiative draws on the programs of the Orange Foundation and the Orange Digital Centers network, offering a structured framework, a solid infrastructure and varied opportunities to support and develop volunteer actions with our committed employees.

Concrete actions for real impact

The platform offers environmental and social initiatives, solidly backed by the active commitment of our employees. Throughout the day on June 5, a number of local initiatives are being organized across our region to demonstrate the concrete impact of this platform. In Mali, for example, a team of 200 Orange employee volunteers is taking part in the reforestation of an urban park dedicated to children by planting 1,000 trees, while in Côte d’Ivoire, 43 kilometers from Abidjan, 30 hectares in the Azaguié forest will be reforested thanks to 150 employees. These examples symbolize Orange’s commitment to supporting local projects that strengthen social ties and protect the environment.

Jérôme Hénique, CEO of Orange Middle East and Africa: “The launch of Orange Engage for Change symbolizes our deep commitment to corporate social responsibility. By empowering our employees to get directly involved in positive impact projects, we are contributing to the sustainable development of communities in the countries where we operate.”

Asma Ennaifer, Executive Director of CSR and Communications at Orange Middle East and Africa and Secretary General of the Orange Digital Center Foundation adds: “This platform is a powerful tool for uniting our teams around shared values. Every initiative, every action taken by our employees demonstrates our collective ability to bring about significant change. We’re proud to see this commitment come to fruition and to witness the positive impact it generates.”

With Orange Engage for Change, Orange gets closer to people by investing in and actively supporting local initiatives in favor of inclusion and the environment.
