Navigating Asia and the growing opportunity for active management

Asia is home to 4.7 billion people and will account for most of the world’s population growth over the next 30 years, while its share of the global economy has steadily grown from 9% of the global economy in 1980 to 39% today. As we move over the next 30 years, Asia’s structural drivers will continue, but where are the money making opportunities for investors?

With an expanding range of investment opportunities, the decade ahead looks promising for Asia, but with countries like China and India taking their own path and the shifting of supply chains, a new playbook is required - and a playbook with stock selection at its heart.

Join Anthony as he shares his insights and observations on the:

  • Critical success factors for this region and where he is seeing investment opportunities
  • Challenges facing Asian investors
  • Importance of corporate governance
  • Portfolio position and performance

This webinar is for professional investors.
