How better use of performance data and analytics can boost investment returns

Many investment firms in Asia overlook the importance of performance data, risk and analytics when it comes to portfolio management – and they are lagging their peers in the US and Europe in this area.

Knowing what has contributed to returns can help improve future performance, and incorporating risk management more closely in this process is key.

On Tuesday 12th September, we will host a complimentary webinar with experts from BNP Paribas Asset Management, Eastspring Investments, FactSet and NTUC Income to discuss how investments and advancements in the area of performance risk and analytics are helping their businesses.

Discussion topics include:

  • The challenges in Asia around to performance and analytics data (i.e. availability, accuracy, timeliness, breadth/depth) and the downstream repercussions
  • How asset owners and asset managers in the region approach performance measurement and analytics across asset classes
  • What’s next? How the role of analytics is evolving and how to develop these processes further

Cross-Border Funds Distribution – Changing Dynamics between Asia and Europe

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?
