AsianInvestor is proud to announce the publication of its first Asset Owner Insights report ­– your guide to the investing behaviour of South Korea’s largest and most influential allocators. 

Asset managers, and anyone covering institutional investors in the region, are now for the first time able to access a market overview of their allocation strategies and portfolio breakdown all in one simple-to-understand report.

Never has it been more vital to learn about South Korean asset owners’ investment habits. As assets in Asia grow at a terrific pace, so does the need to find more varied markets to invest them in. 

Korean institutions had more than $2 trillion under management as of the end of 2016, according to our new report. Their average annual asset growth is estimated at just over 10%, with insurance companies expected to lead the pack with a 15% increase.

For example, Nongyup Property & Casualty Insurance’s AUM grew by more than 20% in each of the last two years. During this time the firm’s foreign investments more than trebled to over $600 million.

The Asset Owner Insights: Korea Institutional Report delivers:

  • Key institutions’ asset data, market size, investments and strategy plans
  • A concise regulatory roadmap to help asset managers understand the process of winning mandates in Korea
  • A comprehensive directory of asset owners, including top personnel and external managers 

Asset Owner Insights, the new research arm of AsianInvestor, will also release reports on Japan, Greater China and Southeast Asia institutions, and on insurers Asia-wide. The Southeast Asia report will be published in mid-May.
