The seminar will focuse on business management and investment strategies that will enable asset managers to be successful in Asia on a sustainable basis.

This seminar is free of charge for CIIA holders from abroad who are most welcome to attend. Simultaneous interpretation in English and Japanese will be available.

Looking at the financial industry, there is a common recognition that asset management has the highest growth potential in all geographical regions.

In particular, Asia-Pacific is expected to be a source of substantial growth for asset management companies in the coming years. The region’s key growth drivers include expanding local capital markets, aging demographics, and official support for funded retirement systems. However, Asia-Pacific is not a homogenous market for asset management services: thus, different business models should be considered for asset managers seeking to capture the region’s growth.

The 6th SAAJ International Seminar “Asset Management in Asia: Opportunities and Future Development”, April 24, 2015, in Tokyo, focuses on business management and investment strategies that will enable asset managers to be successful in Asia on a sustainable basis. Discussion will be led by forefront experts and senior executives who have insights into both global and local management.

Also, as a keynote speech, a senior official from the Bank of Japan will present the economic outlook for Asia over the medium to long term.

Seminar Topics

  • Growth opportunities for the asset management business in Asia
  • Prioritizing markets and products: how should asset managers plan to focus their resources across Asia-Pacific?
  • Institutional vs. retail: how do future product preferences compare across these two segments in the region?
  • Disruptors to watch-out for: should asset managers worry about institutional in-sourcing, and direct-to-consumer sales?

Following the sessions, there will be a reception for a social gathering of seminar participants.
