China to make up nearly half of Asia multi-asset investments

China will account for 49% of multi-asset funds in Asia by 2021, a report predicts.

Researchers said that a recent lull in demand from Chinese investors has slowed the market in multi-asset funds, but that it will pick up again and lift the country’s share of assets in the sector from 40% to 49%.

Investment consultancy Spence Johnson predicted that multi-asset funds in the Asia-Pacific region would contain more than $1 trillion in assets by 2022.

The current value of the sector stands at $596 billion, with institutional investors providing most demand due to a lack of internal asset allocation capability.

Retail appetite for multi-asset funds has ebbed since its peak in 2015, the researchers said.

Japan accounts for 22% and Australia for 16% of investment in multi-asset funds.
