Investing near term in the Far East
Mar 15, 2013
The Asia Pacific region is extremely exciting, it’s growing rapidly, in fact growing faster than any other region in the world.
The rest of the world is now seei ng Asia Pacific as the region to be engaging, to produce and also distribute into the region, it clearly is a destination for many investors.
It’s increasing in depth and sophistication and liquidity. It’s vibrant and we’ve got an emerging group of companies coming out of the APAC which are becoming not just regional and local leaders but also global leaders in their fields.
The corporations no longer need to rely on pure bank lending to grow their business, they could tap the capital markets easily.
The companies in Asia have become large and sophisticated relatively quickly
It’s no longer one or two countries, it’s broad based, it’s no longer just exports we’re talking about interregional trade, we’re talking about growing consumption, that’s just a solid base for the region to build upon.
In fact, there’s more companies in Asia with a market capitalisation greater than a billion dollars, than there are in either the United States or in Europe.
It’s clearly a region filled with promises, but it’s also a region that’s very diverse, it’s big and the rest of the world is clearly taking notice.
Asia is an exciting place to do business because it’s going to lead and continue to lead the world in terms of growth in the future.
