Asia Region Funds Passport

The future of the funds management industry in Asia

Welcome to the PricewaterhouseCoopers/Financial Services Council Asia Region Funds Passport - The future of the funds management industry in Asia

Industry bodies, market participants and member firms of the PwC network across 11 economies in the Asia region have been surveyed to explore the benefits arising from the development of an Asia Region Fund Passport, as well as the regional attitudes towards this objective.

The survey has resulted in more than eighty per cent of industry body and market participants surveyed, endorsing its development. This is because Asia is the future growth engine for the global funds management industry. The region accounts for USD2.757 trillion, or 13 per cent, of global funds under management but nearly two-thirds (60 per cent) of the world's population.

It's believed that an Asia Passport will increase investor choice, provide access to capital, improve efficiency, lead to cost reductions and the retention of asset management jobs regionally.
