  • Asia’s low level of fund penetration today is not representative of the region’s fast growing middle class and the increasing need for retirement savings.

 

3)    Some observations on how UCIT fee levels have not necessarily delivered the efficiencies you would hope for from cross-border schemes;

4)    Different ways fund investors are taxed in various markets as an illustration of some of the complications.
