Growing opportunities in South-east Asia

The investment funds industry in the region continues to grow, fuelled by global developments and regulator-led initiatives. Domestic regulators are working closer together in harmonising industry regulations with global standards. Local investment houses are rising to the challenge of cross-border competition. Singapore’s strong position as an investment management centre continues to grow, adding fintech and digital currencies to the wide range of asset classes managed. This is a period of great dynamism and growth. The region demands expert thought leadership in navigating uncharted waters in the industry.
