In its 13th iteration, this report covers both retail and institutional segments in Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. In the retail space, we size the mutual fund markets and discuss distribution, product, regulatory, and competitive developments, among other topics. In the institutional space, we look at market sizing, both in terms of investable and addressable assets, and identify which institution types and markets provide the best outsourcing potential for managers.
The region holds strong growth opportunities. With a rising middle class and emerging affluent, as well as increasing needs to diversify overseas, managers generally have strong conviction that the demand for foreign investments will continue to rise. What investment strategies can global and regional fund houses offer, and what are the different entry routes they can use to meet the desire to tap the Southeast Asian markets?
Data included in this report is sourced from industry associations, proprietary surveys, and research meetings. Survey data includes almost 70% of the mutual fund (MF) assets in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. In addition, over 50 research calls and meetings were conducted with asset managers, distributors, fund associations, and regulators across all five markets covered in the report.
