Next Thursday, November 18, at 11:00 am EDT, at a new Virtual Investment Summit organized by Funds Society and entitled "Investment opportunities in Asia: China and beyond", Jorge Corro, Head of US Offshore, along with his colleagues Kiran Nandra, Head of Emerging Equity Management and Senior Client Portfolio Manager, and Qian Zhang, Senior Client Portfolio Manager in the Emerging and Greater China Corporate Debt team, will talk about the opportunities and challenges for investors interested in Asia

For the first time since the 1980s, the return on a 50/50 global portfolio is below the expected inflation rate. Consequently, global investors will have to diversify into new asset classes, markets and topics like they have never done before. Higher returns, lower inflation, higher growth and cheap currencies are, in Pictet Asset Management's opinion, a convincing argument for emerging Asian assets.

The panelists at this Virtual Investment Summit will also discuss how recent events in China are affecting the region and the growing influence of the area on the world stage, bringing the world's economic center of gravity constantly to the East.
