Asset Management Industry Expansion in Hong Kong and Singapore Creates Opportunities


Singapore -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/27/2021 -- The asset management industry currently exists in a challenging environment, one that is experiencing shifts in asset classes, market volatility, a potentially long recession and new swathes of corporate debt. However, there are also many opportunities thanks to the large amount of capital that is available for investment and the markets that are expanding in locations such as China and Asia Pacific. Digitisation and emerging technologies also present many opportunities to improve outlooks. As the asset management world looks for ways to streamline approaches and get ready for the next big shift, KPMG professionals have identified a number of key themes that are going to be critical for a brighter future. These include accelerating digital adoption and integration of technology, redesigning the future of work, navigating business opportunities in China and redefining operating models.
