10th Anniversary Edition Of Asia's Leading Investment Management Conference

18 - 21 April 2016

A Total Programme Refresh For FundForum Asia

Alongside the ever-popular Distribution and China Summits, we have added a 3rd, investment- focussed summit. Our  exhibition will be running from the summit day onwards making this day a much more integral part of the event, whilst maintaining our commitment to in-depth debate.

We have condensed the main conference programme over 2 days, whilst maintaining the breadth of topic, to suit our delegate's attendance patterns better and encourage a more captive audience.

Opportunities to meet, question and do business with key potential clients and your peers with a dedicated networking programme including off-the-record Q&A sessions, peer-to-peer closed-door meetings, Chatham House Rules boardroom discussions and lots, lots more

Including Digital Disruption to distribution and advice, the threat of passive investments, new products such as liquid alternatives, the cyber security threat and much, much more

Digging Deeper At FundForum Asia

Monday, 18 April


1. Distribution Summit:

What will the distribution landscape of the future in Asia look like? Is the industry responding to its customers’ needs, how are these needs changing and what are asset managers and fund selectors doing to adapt?


2. China Summit

Ignore China at your peril! This is the message we have been receiving loud and clear. With this in mind, this summit aims to equip you with in-depth information into the different approaches for China within the current macro context.
NOTE: Simultaneous interpretation from English to Mandarin will be available throughout.


3. Asset Allocation Summit:

What is the value proposition for active management in an environment where clients are increasingly relying on passive strategies? Who is truly innovating and where is this innovation coming from? Is alpha still achievable?
