Institutional investors, fund managers, politicians and academics gathered at AsianInvestor’s eighth annual Asian Investment Summit at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Hong Kong on May 22-23.

Japan’s recent resurgence after 20 years of stagnation was a hot topic of conversation, with Northern Trust's chief economist Carl Tannenbaum saying Abenomics should ultimately help the country’s banks even if they do lose business from trading government bonds.

Not everyone jumped on the Japan bandwagon. Michael Roberge, CIO of MFS Investment Management, reckons that Japan’s recent efforts to stimulate the economy are “20 years too late”.

Separately, the Bank of Korea, insurer Ageas and the Hospital Authority Provident Fund Scheme also discussed how to generate returns in the current low-yield environment.
