Cross-border capital flows: What’s trending?

  • Is there a trend towards diversifying out of home biased investments?
  • Will there be an impact on capital flows as a result of the recent geo-political instability in the US and Europe and anti-Chinese rhetoric?
  • What will be the impact of cross-border investments to your total portfolio returns apart from the benefit of diversification?
  • Is the trend of Asian capital heading to the US and Europe likely to increase, given the cash reserves of sovereign wealth and pension funds, insurance firms and private investors, particularly the Chinese?
