Demand for products and alternative assets from investors seeking yields is probably largest in Asia

Komfie Manalo, Opalesque Asia:

The demand for wealth management products and alternative assets from investors seeking yields is probably the largest in Asia. In addition, a large part of the global savings growth is in Asia, said Vishweshwar Anantharam, co-founder and CEO of multi-asset macro fund Vanhau Asset Management.

Indeed, that growth story was the very reason why Anantharam and his partner left their jobs at Goldman Sachs to pursue the opportunity set in Asia. The duo would bring decades of India-China expertise, which they think will be the two of the biggest macro drivers in the years to come, Anantharam told participants of the latest Opalesque Hong Kong Roundtable that he.

"Today, 45% of the global FDI is attracted by Asia and 60% of incremental GDP growth in the world is contributed by developing Asia," he said and added, "The widening financial architecture in Asia with the increased accessibility to these markets for foreigners presents a great opportunity for managers who have the right experience and DNA to generate alpha."

Adam Tam, quant equity portfolios manager at China Everbright Asset Management agrees that overall, Asia remains an attractive place to look for investment opportunities. He stated that since 2010 Asian has underperformed the MSCI World but has also broken out of the underperformance.
