Full biography here.

Inflation risk (72%) is the biggest concern for most asset owners and asset managers in Asia over the next two years, followed by global recession fears (67%), risk management (66%), and geopolitical tensions (59%). Although inflation was expected to be transitory at the beginning of 2022, the consensus expectation now points to inflation extending well into 2023, reducing real returns immediately and making portfolio diversification more challenging.

In 2023, Cerulli believes that the promotion of real assets, emphasis on income, and capital protection are re-emerging as core themes across asset owners in Asia. To evaluate asset owners’ portfolio allocations in 2021 and 2022, the reasons behind their asset allocation decisions, and how they plan to change their asset allocations going forward, use our latest report, Institutional Asset Management in Asia: Opportunities in a Changing Landscape.
