Innovative and strong: Asia remains an attractive investment region

Asia is becoming an increasingly important driver of the global economy. The Asian capital markets are characterized by high corporate earnings, attractively valued equity markets by international comparison, and a high level of innovation. Asia remains an interesting region for long-term investors – thanks to low interest rates and the supportive economic policies of the Asian governments, among other things. Metzler Asset Management’s equity strategies for China and Japan give our clients the opportunity to benefit from these opportunities. We offer investment solutions in the form of special AIFs and mutual funds with different share classes.
