The Shift to Asia

The prolonged bull market has brought stretched valuations to developed stock markets and increased global concerns that a major market correction is imminent.

The global hunt for growth

The prolonged bull market has brought stretched valuations to developed stock markets and increased global concerns that a major market correction is imminent. In the global hunt for growth at a reasonable price, the high prices in established markets are forcing high-net-worth investors to look elsewhere. This investor reality is helping Asian markets, which do not suffer the effects of such “stretched” valuations, become an increased focus of global attention.

Alongside this shift to Asia, Bloomberg will gather some of Asia’s top investors to take a macro look at the future for Asian inflows, how the hunt for Asian growth needs a different approach and risk appetite to developed markets, and how the end of the bull market will influence investor strategy.
