New Business Opportunities for Asset Management

Thursday, March 23, 2023
09:40 AM - 10:25 AM JST
Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Tokyo - Grand Ballroom

The asset management industry has had to adopt new business strategies in response to a long series of financial, political, and health-related events. Besides the global health pandemic, geopolitical events, monetary policy shifts, and greater accountability on sustainability and ESG considerations have all weighed—and continue to weigh—on the asset management class. Panelists will reflect on how transition to a new era has affected asset management, from capital raising and portfolio construction to business continuity. They will compare the various ways in which regulators have adjusted their policies to attract capital and accelerate financial innovations, while maintaining stability in financial markets. Panel members will examine where investors are looking for returns, from the real economy to financial markets. Most especially, the panel members will try to answer questions about the opportunities that beckon investors to—Japan, the Asia Pacific region, and around the world.
