Today’s low-rate environment has done little to curtail demand for income across Asia, with funds flowing into alternative income generating vehicles in the face of mounting debt risks. Especially in this region, real estate continues to be viewed as a safe haven for parking assets and generating income, especially with strong market confidence in supply-side tailwinds in regions such as Europe. Demand for physical assets, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and real estate equities is directing Asian wealth into the asset class.

AXA Investment Managers is gatekeepers’ real estate investment manager of choice, standing out for its capabilities in Europe, where select yields continue to see growth as rental demand outstrips supply growth. Indeed, AXA Investment Managers boasts a 15-year track record during which time it has asserted its dominance within the indirect European property category, providing market access to foreign investors in both real estate equities and REITs.

The fund provider has demonstrated an undeniable commitment towards establishing dedicated coverage of the private wealth segment in Asia, and providing private banks with frequent access to key investment expertise, content and solutions. AXA Investment Manager is this year’s Best Fund Provider – Real Estate Asset.
