Brace yourselves for the ultimate in Hong Kong broking and media unions. SocGen-Crosby Asian sales hot shot Miles Remington and RTHK lunchtime radio presenter Liz Case have at long last decided to tie the knot after being an item on the Hong Kong scene for seven years. The couple made a simple 11-word announcement about their decision in yesterday's Post, ending years of 'will they or won't they' speculation. Both have led high-profile lives on the Hong Kong circuit. Mr Remington, aside from his well-chronicled broking exploits, for years terrorised the Hong Kong bar scene as lead singer for a local band, and was also a feared opponent on rugby fields at the highest level. In 1993, he won the Taipan of the Year award from a field of well-known business movers and shakers. Ms Case - who hosts the Lunchbeat radio show on Radio 3 - has supplemented her broadcasting activities with regular charity work. Yesterday, Mr Remington was being coy about the date of the couple's nuptials when we caught him briefly. He did, however, pronounce himself 'very pleased' about the announcement. Local markets have been notable for lacking their usual spark in recent weeks, but one trade has proved to be of more than academic interest to even hardened market observers. Those savvy investors, the President and Fellows of Harvard College - via their investment vehicle, the Harvard Management Co - have decided now is the time to reduce their exposure to the troubled Indonesian stock market. Public records reveal the Harvard investors sold down their substantial stake in the Jardine Fleming Indonesia Fund by 300,000 shares - or more than half a per cent - early this month at about $3 per share. Granted, this was up from the $1.85 share price the fund fell to at one stage this year in the wake of the Indonesian economic crisis. But compared with the more than $10 a share they could have reaped last year, the value of the investment has fallen lately. A quick calculation values its 5.9 million share stake in the fund just before the sale at about $17.7 million - a far cry from the $60 million-odd the stake was worth in the middle of last year. Even an academic investment approach, it seems, isn't always successful at picking the top of the market. Lai See was surprised to find the Harvard Management Co manages an endowment worth a whopping US$11.3 billion on behalf of the famous university, in no small part because of substantial donations. We're informed the company's recent overall performance has been worthy of such a princely sum - although it has been affected by the Asian woes. We called the company's CEO, Jack Meyer, in Boston, to ask him what it felt like to be the man in charge of so much money - and other people's money at that. Did it give him a feeling of power? 'I don't think I should comment on that,' he said. He also refused to discuss the JF Indonesia Fund transaction - but was more forthcoming about the company's investment outlook for Asia. The company had not been discouraged by Asia's troubles from investing in the region, he said. 'We tend to be more diversified than most [US] institutional funds - diversification in the long term is very powerful.' Reader Mike Parry, just back from Japan, tells us of an interesting Easter Monday service with a Hong Kong-style twist that he attended in the town of Koga, just outside Tokyo. The sermon in the town's solitary Catholic church was being delivered not in Japanese or English, but in the Tagalog dialect to cater to the town's population of Filipina maids. Everything seemed to be progressing without event - and the priest's speech was getting into full swing about resurrections and the like. At this stage, with the priest in mid-sentence, a mobile phone went off, playing a well-known tune as its ring. Sheepishly, the priest reached into his pocket and took out the offending object. A message from God, perhaps? We'll never know: he switched off the offending article without even asking who was on the other end of the line. This Easter was not a bad one for retailers despite the tough economic times. A spokesman for Marks & Spencer confirmed that egg sales were strong, and in fact ended up being in line with those of last year. The company has stressed, however, that the real mover and shaker this year was the humble hot cross bun. Wellcome supermarket didn't go all out for an egg-stravaganza this time around. It was more cautious this season after disappointing sales last year. Group category manager Lo Yiu-keung said its leaner strategy had paid off - as the company was not left having to hold '70 per cent off' sales this time around.
