Embracing global asset management changes- Business Thailand Review 2013

March 1, 2013

Lola Myshketa and Keith Dicker look at how Thailand ’s asset management industry is forging a positive response to the impact of the current global economic environment.

The global economy and financial system is now at a point that has never been experienced before:

-The US, Japan, Britain, and Europe have all reduced shortterm interest rates to near 0%, while printing money to try to reduce longer-term interest rates.

-All four countries have nearly reached limits with deficit spending and debt accumulation.

-Direct interference by governments and central banks in bond, currency, and interest rate markets are creating significant distortions across financial markets, as well as creating a disconnect between the real economy and financial markets.

The confluence of these global macro factors has certainly made the world a very different place for both investors and managers.

Yet despite the sobering truth behind these cold hard facts, this is actually an exciting time for the investment industry. Accurately recognising and accepting the state of the world’s financial predicament provides plenty of opportunities for the astute investor and investment manager.

From an asset management perspective, correctly understanding today’s global macro environment is the key to preserving investors’ wealth and positioning their portfolios for the next great secular bull market. Simply applying the same old bullish stories and strategies from the 1980-90s will not suffice. Investors demand and deserve better and this is where the Thailand asset management industry can deliver.
