ASEAN Wealth Management Summit

YB Dato' Seri Ahmad Husni Mohamad Hanadzlah, Minister of Finance II of Malaysia, confirmed as keynote speaker


Kuala Lumpur 26th November 2013

Southeast Asia is in the midst of an economic boom, as evidenced by the sharp rise in the number of people who now fall into the middle class demographic, and the increasing levels of wealth that have created a new and growing generation of ‘high net worth’ and ‘ultra high net worth’ individuals. Indeed, the number of high net worth individuals (HNIs) in Asia is believed to be growing at twice the international rate, which goes some way to explaining why the global wealth management industry has been increasingly shifting its focus eastwards.

While the powerhouse economies of
China and India continue to dominate the headlines, there is mounting interest in the emergence of ASEAN countries such as Indonesia, where the world’s largest Muslim population is helping to drive growth in Islamic wealth management markets. The variation in the demographics of these countries makes for a vastly different wealth management environment to that of Europe and the US, and the race is on to understand the mindset of today’s HNW and UHNW ASEAN population.

FT Live, in association with Labuan IBFC, is delighted to present a full-day summit to discuss the fast-moving evolution of the wealth management industry and the impact of Southeast Asia's growth
. Leading industry participants, from both conventional and Islamic disciplines, will provide expert knowledge and analysis through keynote presentations, panel sessions and onstage interviews. This is an exciting time for the ASEAN region but what are the best wealth management strategies that position HNW and UHNW individuals and families for the future?
