On Demand Webinars

Broadcast date: 16 November 2016 3:00 PM
Description :

AsianInvestor in partnership with Euroclear, will conduct a webinar discussing how to improve cross-border access to local funds in the region’s emerging markets, from technological and regulatory standpoints. We will also discuss how can countries keep ahead of the many technological and regulatory developments coming through? What can really improve their levels of automation? Can automation boost liquidity and product creation?

We will discuss:

  • The issues: what challenges (technological, regulatory or financial) prevent non-Asian investors from investing into domestic Asian funds?
  • The reality: how much interest do European investors have in Asian funds? How easy are these funds to access today?
  • The options: what can local Asian funds managers/distributors do to create/improve access to their cross border funds?
  • The future: what role can emerging technologies, such as blockchain, play in modernising Asia’s fund access and distribution networks?

The Mutual Recognition of Funds program has the potential to offer international investors access to consumer and institutional savings and investments ‘northbound’ to China, and vice versa. Fund managers are excited about the opportunity to expand their business, with many saying they will enter the Chinese market slowly.
