Summary:

This paper explores the ongoing changes to cross-border investment fund distribution in Asia Pacific. It examines the success of Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities Directives (UCITS), the way that patterns of demand are changing and some of the obstacles to greater pan-regional activity. It also sets out some possible trends in cross-border fund sales and ends with a call for asset managers to avoid being left behind by market developments.
