AsianInvestor, sister title to CT, is pleased to announce the launch of a new research division: Asset Owner Intelligence. The platform will deliver detailed analysis on the activity of Asia’s leading asset owners, including pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and insurers.
Asset Owner Intelligence will initially offer bespoke reports on Asia’s largest institutional investors, focusing on fund size, key contacts, portfolio information, lists of external managers and insight on how future asset allocations will be determined.
The research will be split by geography – Korea, Japan, Greater China and SE Asia – while a targeted report on Asian insurers will also be available.
AsianInvestor brings more than 15 years of award-winning institutional reporting to the table and has regularly delivered high-profile events where asset managers and owners can connect. Asset Owner Intelligence is the natural extension to this offering.
According to AI300 research, assets held by Asian asset owners is expected to grow to $60 trillion by 2026, up from $35 trillion today. In step, the percentage of total AuM managed externally will jump from 16% to 20% during the same period, while mandates will become more internationally focused.
The move into alternatives is even more pronounced with 62% of Asia’s largest asset owners planning to increase their allocations within the next 12-24 months.
The division will be headed by Alastair Hills, who is currently AsianInvestor’s head of conferences. Alongside Hills is Ed Stockreisser, who joins as an executive consultant to the business.
Stockreisser brings a wealth of experience with him in Asia, Europe, and the US, most notably with Lombard Street Research, as its head of Asia-Pacific.
Stockreisser is also the chairman of AsiaIRP, the industry body in Asia for supporting fund managers and research firms develop best practices. He is also co-founder and director of Seed Alpha, a fintech start-up helping asset managers with research management and analytics.
“Information on many of Asia’s leading asset owners is opaque. We hope this intelligence will help asset managers navigate, target and ultimately win mandates by serving asset owners what they need,“ said Hills.
