The Asia Institute is a private membership for leading asset management firms looking to grow their Asia Pacific business. It is an unparalleled business development platform that provides access to senior decision makers from the largest institutional investors across the region and builds brand awareness by showcasing firm capabilities.

Asia Institute members attend three investor-attended meetings which can be customized to best align with sales targets and business objectives. The fourth event is a “CEO-only” gathering for Senior Delegates of member firms.

Of the investor-attended meetings, one is a major Summit attended by a diverse delegation of investors from across the region. Members then have the opportunity to select two regional events from Institutional Inves­tor's menu of investor-attended events across Asia Pacific (Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, and Singapore). This allows members to tailor the experience to cover their priority markets.

Meet the right investors

Institutional Investor’s core business is working with Asia-based pensions, insurers, sovereign wealth funds and central banks to help meet their investment objectives. As an Asia Institute member, you have the ability to benefit from our relationships. We get the right investment officials to our meetings and their quality is unparalleled.

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.

Membership not sponsorship

Join the Asia Institute for one year at a time. Members partner with Institutional Investor and have access to an unparalleled business development platform, insights from peers and open doors to client decision-makers. Take advantage of Institutional Investor’s dedicated investor relations team that can help you identify asset owners most relevant to your strategies.

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.
