Local market expertise

Members leave every meeting with a finger on the pulse of specific challenges facing that market and a deeper understanding of the developments affecting investment decisions across the Asia Pacific.

Reduce your costs & improve productivity

The Asia Institute provides access to clients and markets in a very timely and cost effective manner. You have the ability to meet over 250 individual investors in any given year. The Asia Institute compresses the amount of time required to visit prospects and to service clients. This doesn’t just save you time and money, it means that you can win more business, sooner.

Get to really know your clients

Our meetings are designed by investors for investors. Thus, our programs are compelling and attract investors with direct asset allocation responsibilities. There are no sales pitches and the media is strictly prohibited. As a result, members have a rare opportunity to hear investors speak candidly about their investment challenges in a private setting, while positioning themselves as experts and thought leaders.

Win more mandates

The Asia Institute allows you to build relationships more effectively with investors because you meet them when they are reaching out for answers. The Asia Institute is a private membership, its meetings are educational, and members work alongside investors in closed-door discussion groups to discuss their biggest challenges. Members have the opportunity to build trust and credibility with their most important clients and prospects.
