Asia Funds taking the biggest byte out of the future

Increased, and more efficient, production is one of the major keys to non-inflationary economic growth. Deploying capital goods, technology and improved computing speed should translate into higher production and greater productivity.

Analysis of EPFR’s Industry Allocations dataset shows that managers of Equity Funds focused on the Asia-Pacific region and its markets have, since the post-Covid recovery began in 3Q20,  significantly increased their exposure to technology hardware and equipment producers.
