As more wealthy Asians seek to buy property overseas as an investment or short-term residence, their private bankers are only too happy to help, according to a recent article in the New York Times. Indeed, the wealth management divisions of banks are reporting a brisk business in setting up short-term revolving loans for property purchases. The term is usually five years, renewable annually after that, and the interest rate is set individually in accordance with the borrower's credit profile. Given the low interest rates in the region, it makes sense for clients to borrow against property and use the cash for investments to generate higher returns. Another goal is to take advantage of low interest rates on loans, and to borrow in Asian currencies that have appreciated smartly in recent ...

“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.

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 econo...
