In this one-time report, Cerulli examines product trends in various Asian markets, and sheds light on the potential uptake of non-traditional strategies as well as some new product ideas. The report looks at how Asian investors, particularly institutions, are seeking increased allocation to alternatives, such as private equity, real estate, infrastructure and private debt, in search of better returns and diversification of their portfolios amid rising volatility in public markets. The report provides insights on the market landscape of each asset class, the demand drivers, potential opportunities, and challenges. This report also assesses the demand for alternative strategies in the retail segment, particularly among wealthy investors. Among other strategies, we examine the uptake of theme-based products: smart beta, artificial intelligence, and sustainable investing, and examines how these will unfold in future.
Data from this report is compiled from surveys of distributors and more than 70 managers across Asia. Nearly 50 research meetings were conducted with asset managers, distributors, fund associations, regulators, consultants, and institutional investors in the region.
