5 ways to ride Asia’s ascent


Asia is home to 4.7 billion people - around 60% of the world’s total population. The region accounts for 40% of global GDP and this is growing at 6% per annum – twice the global average. After a period of stunning economic growth, COVID-19 was the ultimate stress-test, but the major economies of the region are now emerging with significant economic tailwinds.
