The APAC wealth management market is maturing in various aspects, including the adoption of best practices, automation, streamlined operational processes, and a more diverse distribution of assets. However, compared to other regions, Asia still lags behind in implementing sustainable investment strategies, although it is rapidly working to meet client demands. The COVID-19 pandemic had an impact on the APAC wealth management market, leading to an increase in remote working and the adoption of digital initiatives.
Efficient post-trade processing plays a crucial role in asset management companies’ risk reduction and ultimately affects the performance of investment portfolios. In the current environment, where differentiating between performance and returns is challenging, asset managers are placing even greater emphasis on operational efficiency and cost savings. The Asia-Pacific region displays significant variations in fund types and investment behaviors across countries such as India, China, Japan, Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Malaysia. This geographical diversification has increased exposure to currency settlement risks and a growing allocation to offshore assets among pension funds and insurers in the region.
Wealth management firms in Asia faced challenges due to slowing economic growth, increased market volatility, and significant capital losses globally and in the APAC region. Embracing best practices in operations and risk management will attract further investment in the asset management industry in Asia, driving overall growth in the region.

In 2021, wealth management through private banks in the APAC region experienced significant growth and development. Due to the increasing number of high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs), ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNWIs), and the growing demand for wealth management services, the APAC region has emerged as a critical market for private banks. To cater to the specific needs and preferences of their HNWI and UHNWI clients, private banks in the region have been focusing on providing personalized and tailored services encompassing risk management, investment management, tax preparation, and estate planning.

In 2021, China’s national equity exchange and quotations (NEEQ) had a market capitalization of 2.28 trillion yuan (353.4 billion USD). The market capitalization experienced rapid growth after 2014 and reached its peak in 2017 at nearly 5 trillion yuan (740 billion USD). However, a year later, the equity market suffered a value loss of almost 1.5 trillion yuan (222 billion USD). This decline was attributed to the unfavorable investment climate in 2018 when stock values on the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges decreased by approximately 24%. Since then, the NEEQ has struggled to recover as larger exchanges sought to attract young companies, posing significant competition to the equity exchange through boards like the ChiNext in Shenzhen and the StarA board in Shanghai.
