Asia Cross-Border Quarterly

The Strategic Insight Asia Cross-Border reports series focuses on three major Asian markets where cross-border funds can be sold directly to retail investors. This quarterly reports series combines assets and net flows of both local and crossborder funds, providing a holistic picture of mutual fund trends and distribution dynamics in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan, also highlighting successful managers and funds with mini case studies.
