Asia's fund markets are changing, and fast: the growth of its middle class, a rapidly ageing population, the disruption of traditional distribution channels by the entrance of new ones and opportunities to sell across borders are emerging, as well as the establishment of fund-passporting regimes.
These forces are prompting a rethink in how funds are distributed, and distribution will no longer be a single-step process, but a multi-faceted one with many considerations.
In this interactive workshop, come and join Asia industry experts in the debate on what the future for funds look like in Asia.
The rise of online distribution and its governance challenges, the mutual recognition agreement between Hong-Kong and China, the stock exchanges supplying alternative funds distribution channels, the rising so-called ‘funds hubs’, and the regulators’ role in the success of a distribution channel are some of the topics that are going to be covered in this session.
Let’s look ahead together - join the dialogue!
