A Note from the Author

Alternative Investments Gain Popularity Among Asia’s Wealthy

Interest in onboarding alternative investments is growing among Asian distributors as they seek to promote these strategies to wealthy investors, who have increasingly warmed up to the asset class amid volatility in public markets.

Cerulli’s research finds most Asia ex-Japan bank distributors expect the adoption of alternative funds by affluent, high-net-worth (HNW), and ultra-HNW investors to increase over the next two years. More than three-quarters (76%) of banks see HNW clients increasing their allocation to alternatives in 2023, and this proportion jumps to 86% by 2025.

In terms of strategies, 77% of banks in the region express interest in promoting private equity, with hedge funds following closely behind. Private banks are particularly keen on these two strategies, while retail banks have also shown a strong interest in real estate strategies.
