Our view on the sector

Asia is home to some of the most dynamic economies in the world and has the potential to grow strongly over the long term. Funds in this sector invest in more mature economies like Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore together with emerging economies such as the Philippines and Indonesia. Some also invest in other developed economies such as Australia. The region is home to some of the biggest economies in the world, like China and India, and a growing middle class means they're less reliant on exporting to the West. Domestic consumption and the growing use of technology could help drive the next phase of their growth. We think Asia is home to plenty of good investment opportunities but it's a higher-risk area to invest so a long-term approach is needed.
