Asia fund management myth-buster

Asset Management

A recent AsianInvestor survey of the biggest institutional fund managers across Asia-Pacific dispelled several misconceptions:

They are not home-bound and instead have a strong appetite for global market exposure; they are willing to explore alternatives rather than stick to traditional assets; and there is little sign that they are switching to passive investment strategies.

So, Asian fund managers are dynamic, experimental and keen to take on the world. They’re also a social lot and keen to share.

“Respondents are as happy to invest directly and to co-invest with general partners and peers as they are to take a fund-of-funds approach, and they are ready to outsource more to local partners,” notes AsianInvestor. (paywall)
