Taiwan’s investment landscape is fast evolving. Global trade tensions, market volatility and geopolitical risks continue to impact the market. Deregulation, meanwhile, has played an important role in the development of the market. The relaxation of investment quotas paved the way for more investment options for domestic investors.
The bond market becomes more attractive as formosa bonds become popular among investors, particularly insurers, who struggle with the market’s low yields. The country’s ETF market is seeing increased participation from institutional investors, resulting in new innovative products. ESG investing is on the rise as corporates and investors ramp up efforts to achieve financial returns along with sustainable performance. Multi asset strategies present a compelling opportunity as investors continue to diversify.
However, challenges remain. Currency risk has become a major issue as investors pile up on overseas assets. Regulatory changes, which are currently underway, could re-impose investment restrictions. Amidst this landscape, what opportunities are available for Taiwanese investors as they search for better returns in this volatile market?
The Asset is pleased to be organizing the 5th Taiwan Investment, a high-level event which will bring together institutional investors, insurance companies, private banks and asset managers to discuss the developments that are reshaping the Taiwan's investment landscape.
