Asia Investment Survey 2023

Our latest research for the S-RM Asia Investment Survey 2023 captures investment sentiment towards the region just as it emerges from Covid-19 controls.

On 8 January 2023, China dismantled its last pillar of Covid-19 restrictions and the world’s attention turned to Asia to see what would happen next. The region that went into isolation in 2020 is far removed, both economically and politically, from the one that has emerged in 2023. But what do these changes mean for investment in the region?

In March this year we surveyed over 400 senior decision-makers globally, from both corporate companies and private investment firms. They told us about their views on the emerging opportunities, risks, and structural dynamics they are seeking to navigate and exploit in Asia post Covid-19.

Key insights from the report

  1. Long-term assumptions and optimism about growth in Asia remain in place and do not appear to have been significantly impacted by Covid-19 or the ‘new macro’.
  2. Concerns are proliferating and investment consensus breaks down around which strategies and Asian sub-regions are best placed to benefit from the changing dynamics and risks associated with current conditions.
  3. Financial services and fintech are consistently seen as the biggest opportunities for investment in Asia, across all sub-regions.
