Globally, assets under management (AUM) for alternative strategies are expected to grow to US$18.9tn by 2025 as investors increasingly turn to the asset class in the pursuit of alpha, income, and diversification. The asset class in Asia is growing faster than other regions and expected to reach US$7 trillion by 2025. Against this backdrop, alternatives are set to become a larger source for funding and providing for Asian economies, which are in need of private capital to help maintain growth momentum, fund infrastructure projects, respond effectively to climate change and address other pressing issues.
With the demand for capital in Asian economies far outstripping the supply of capital from traditional providers, the role of the alternative asset class in channelling private capital to meet the financing needs of the fast-growing Asian economies is paramount. For investors in alternatives in the region, compelling opportunities to share in the growth of Asia’s development are plentiful.
