[Mark Fletcher, Attorney]: "I was here in '95 and '96, and it had a reputation for being a little bit dull, which it wasn't even then. And if it wasn't then it certainly isn't now. It's a fantastic place. So much new development, the equivalent of the London Eye over there and this sky tower is just fantastic." Singapore's central bank estimates overall assets under management in the city are up about 40 percent from a year ago. [Anton Casey, Wealth Manager]: "I think Singapore has positioned itself very well, in terms of capturing all the flow of assets from out of Switzerland. You've got Zurich, Geneva, Lugano, the major financial centres in Switzerland, and a lot of people are now preferring the Asian story. To try and bring their wealth out and capitalize on all the opportunities out here." The big players, including Swiss giants UBS AG and Credit Suisse are looking to expand into the Asia-Pacific region in the next few years. The end of a decades-long ban on casinos about five years ago was a turning point. [Anton Casey, Wealth Manager]: "You know I would have never believed that we would have two massive casinos here when I first arrived here 10 years ago. But here we are, we are sitting on the roof of one now. And if you look around the bay you got all the new skyscrapers, all the new banks, wealth management firms all here, so it's really kicked off and the Gran Prix had helped a lot as well."

Latest research from Timetric finds that Singapore is the fastest growing wealth centre in the Asia Pacific region and that Singapore will overtake Switzerland as the largest global offshore private banking market by 2020. The firm writes: "With Assets under Management (AuM) of US$550 billion at the end of 2011, new research reveals that Singapore is the fastest growing wealth centre in the world, and will be the largest offshore private banking market by 2020. This reflects the significant disparity in the performance of the HNWI sectors in the Asia-Pacific region and the rest of the world, and suggests a bright future for HNWIs in the region." The research covered the high net worth individual (HNWI) populations in 13 Asia Pacific countries, focusing on HNWI performance between 2007 (the peak before the global financial crisis) and the end of 2011. The firm claims that this enables them to determine how well each country's HNWIs have performed through the crisis. Singapore has seen its AUM rise from US$50 billion in 2000 to US$550 billion in 2011. The firm says: "Singapore will benefit from the movement of funds away from Switzerland, Luxemburg and the Caribbean over the next seven years, and by 2020 will be the largest global offshore banking market by AuM."

According to a survey published this year by the real estate agency Cluttons and the consulting firm VPC Asia Pacific, about 57 percent of wealthy investors named London as their top target market for property purchases. Investors surveyed in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore identified the central London residential market as their primary target for offshore investments, while wealthy investors in Bangkok ranked London behind Rangoon, Burma, and wealthy Indonesians placed London in third position, after Singapore and Australia.

“The Asian countries hold Earth's future in their hands. If they choose to protect themselves against dangerous climate change, they will help to save the entire planet.” That’s how Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, a leading climate change researcher and founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, sees it. He made the comments recently during the launch of a new report from the Asian Development Bank and the Institute: A Region at Risk: The Human Dimensions of Climate Change in Asia and the Pacific. The report presents the latest research on the dire consequences of climate change in Asia and the Pacific under a business-as-usual scenario. https://www.adb.org/publications/region-at-risk-climate-change https://www.adb.org/

Globalization and economic interdependence among Asia's countries rest precariously on increasingly tense geopolitical relations and competing security interests, including the North Korean nuclear threat, the China-India border standoff, and escalating tensions in the South China Sea. As a region, the Asia-Pacific presents the largest source of global economic growth and possesses tremendous business potential in the next ten to 20 years, more so if financial and economic markets are further integrated. But governments and businesses are cognizant that geopolitical tensions may put a damper on these opportunities. What are the anticipated geo-economic trends in the Asia-Pacific? What is the nature of some of these regional relationships and what potential impacts will they have on economies and businesses? How can governments, the private sector, and international or regional organizations work together to maintain regional peace and stability for sustained economic development? Moderator Prerna Suri, Broadcast Journalist Speakers Karen Brooks, Adjunct Senior Fellow for Asia, Council on Foreign Relations Curtis S.
