Corporate confidence is evidently running high across Asia-Pacific, with over a quarter of firms polled by Fidelity International expecting to grow their revenues by 20% or more this year.

To gauge the mood of corporate Asia, Fidelity dispatched more than 70 of its equity and credit analysts in the region to quiz hundreds of companies they follow on their expectations for 2011.

Matthew Sutherland, Asia-Pacific head of research at Fidelity International, discusses the findings, and outlines his own views on equity markets, valuations and the implications for investors.
