There is evidence that a well-executed TPA can provide a return benefit of 50 to 100 basis points per annum over a traditional, SAA-based approach (Total Portfolio Approach – A global asset owners study into current and future asset allocation practices. Thinking Ahead Institute). However, investors must be prepared to fully commit to the organisational design, with the potential changes to operations and investment support systems that it implies, if they are to fully reap these benefits.
SimCorp, in partnership with AsianInvestor, will conduct a webinar that dives into the TPA approach. This webinar will cover:
• The shift away from traditional, Strategic Asset Allocation to TPA
• The impact of TPA on capital allocation, internal culture and governance
• Is TPA worth the time, cost and effort?
• The biggest challenges of implementing this approach
• What asset owners need to do to effectively execute TPA’
• A panel discussion
In this webcast, eVestment in partnership with AsianInvestor, will share unique proprietary data around how institutional investors globally have responded to market volatility and suggest some best practices about how best to monitor managers.
The discussion offers participants a chance to learn about specific examples of how market-leading institutional investors conduct quarterly manager monitoring as a way to both prepare for manager meetings and to flag potential investment risks.
Main points of discussion include:
- Why ongoing monitoring of investment managers is important
- Key ways to accurately scrutinise your external managers’ performance
- The importance of monitoring performance and risk relative to peers, not just benchmarks
- Flags that may signal areas of concern to discuss with your manager
Portfolio management is certainly not immune from the far-reaching influence of technology on all aspects of our lives. In line with the ever-faster availability, speed and access of data and digital solutions, investors across APAC must consider the potential applications, drivers, barriers and future of AI, machine learning and Neuro-Linguistic Programming on asset allocation and investing.
In this webinar, AsianInvestor, in partnership with Refinitiv, will reveal insights from a new, exclusive survey of over 175 senior investment professionals in APAC on the role of new technologies within today's investment landscape.
We will address key topics such as:
- The drivers for using new technologies to invest
- The future for new technologies in portfolio management
- How new technologies will (re)define asset allocation and investing in general across the industry
- The barriers to greater engagement of AI and other new technologies - and how to overcome them
- What we as an industry need to do to get ready for these changes

SOLVING THE DATA DILEMMA: Why are data management projects in Asia Pacific failing to deliver value?
Organizations in Asia Pacific are starting to spend more on cleaning up their data to maximize its value. Doing so is now critical as portfolios in the region are becoming more complex and diversified, which raises the risk of unintended exposures.
The data that organisations generate can offer unique intelligence to help them make better investment decisions. But it is only useful if it can be properly identified and managed within appropriate infrastructure. There are also costs associated with data management, so decisions need to be made over its storage and control.
Liquidity is generally absent when you need it most. And with liquidity risk becoming a bigger issue in bond markets, in particular since the 2008 crisis, institutional investors in the Asia-Pacific region believe lower market liquidity is a secular shift necessitating a new investment approach.
