Webinar – The rise of Asia

CIO Paras Anand kicks off the week with a keynote presentation that asks how Asia’s influence over global markets might be impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. As economies worldwide are reshaped, how will the response of policymakers, companies and ultimately investors change the outlook for the region?

Speakers: Paras Anand, CIO, Asset Management, Asia Pacific | Catherine Yeung, Investment Director, Asia Pacific


The story of Asian economic strength is not new. Stable political regimes, widescale adoption of technology and rising consumer spending patterns have combined to make Asia the dominant driver of global growth for more than a decade.

As the world gets back on its feet after the hammering blow of Covid-19, we’re already starting to see an acceleration of this trend.

Many countries in the region have demonstrated disciplined, well-resourced and effectively-targeted responses to the pandemic. As a result, their economies are benefitting from a “first in, first out” dynamic with activity returning to normal sooner than elsewhere.

But ongoing trade and geopolitical tensions could create headwinds to China’s ascent as a global superpower. What’s more, the renewed focus on sustainability as a result of the recent crisis could also bring into the focus the region’s historically questionable governance and employee welfare track record.

What does all that mean for future capital flows and the shape of investment portfolios in the months and years ahead?

Join our experts to find out.
