At AsianInvestor's recent Art of Asset Management forum in Hong Kong, we sat down to interview Madeline Ho, head of wholesale fund distribution for Asia Pacific at Natixis Global Asset Management.
In the second part of this interview, Ho discusses Asia fund passporting and how she sees the need for larger countries to join in order to provide scale. She also says having one or two passporting schemes would be best to avoid thinning-out demand.
Looking to the next 10 years, Ho says it will be important to identify the needs of the current tech-savvy generation in their 20s and 30s, who will form the core of the future customer base.
Ho also discusses data mining and the possible separation of advice fees and product sales fees.
