Asia Investment Conference

The Future of Capital

ASEAN Credit

Hosted by Jesley Chua, Vice President, tryb Group

ASEAN Credit: Low access, High risk, Low returns?

  • Practical challenges of investing in ASEAN are many – difficult to have pan-ASEAN strategy due to heterogeneity of markets, high cost of currency hedging

  • Lack of data standardization and data quality assurance makes it difficult/ almost impossible to do due diligence, need to apply high risk premium

  • Given relatively high returns in developed markets, is it even worthwhile to spend time on ASEAN?

  • Digital solutions are reducing the cost of investing in ASEAN – Will it be enough so that the market becomes relevant to international investors?

Taking place on 4 May 2018

Time: 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Constellation Ballroom.
