Some 360 delegates from more than 200 companies across the region gathered at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore on November 30 and December 1 for AsianInvestor's 8th annual Southeast Asia Institutional Investment Forum.

Speakers at the event included representatives of leading asset owners, including insurance firms AIA, Great Eastern Life and Tokio Marine and Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC. 

Topics up for discussion included the challenges of negative interest rates, the rise of India's economy, the challenge of finding returns in a low-yield world and the question of whether alternatives are now in fact essential investments.

The event also saw the presentation of AsianInvestor's prestigious Institutional Excellence Awards at a dinner in the evening of the first day.
