A recent survey by Swiss bank Lombard Odier found that Asia-Pacific super-rich investors no longer apply the "observe and wait" strategy like during the pandemic due to concerns about market volatility in the near future.

The survey was conducted on 450 wealthy investors with a minimum capital of 1 million USD in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.  Accordingly, their biggest concerns are managing current market volatility and political risks as well as how to diversify portfolios to mitigate these risks.

Lombard Odier said that these issues have become more urgent than the survey in 2020.

Currently, about 68% of investors in Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan and Australia have redesigned or changed their portfolios to better suit market conditions.  

About 77% of those surveyed said that rising inflation and the prospect of a recession were the most worrying issues.  Singaporean investors are most worried about this situation.

Wealthy investors in the region are generally less concerned about the possibility of interest rate hikes mainly because they think most governments would be cautious not to raise interest rates to avoid hurting economic growth.

However, Australian and Indonesian investors are uncertain about this.  The majority of those surveyed in these two countries, around 70%, say that higher interest rates are a significant worry.

Investors in the Philippines are most concerned about geopolitical instability, while those in Hong Kong and Singapore also see geopolitical tensions as one of the top risks over the next 12 months.

They worry about the impact of geopolitical risks and conflicts on the returns of their investments, many people forecast that profits will be lower in the near future. They are also concerned that they may miss out on investment opportunities during these volatile times.

Many investors in Hong Kong and Japan are pondering the effectiveness of current portfolio diversification strategies against the negative impact of falling stock prices, large credit spreads and high long-term interest rates.

Super-rich investors in APAC have become more cautious and diverged from traditional asset classes as stocks and bonds to investing in their own companies.

Many people have put their money in safer assets like cash and gold.  Some are investing in private assets including private equity funds, private loans through venture funds, real estate and infrastructure.  Investors in Singapore and Australia are leading in this category.

Furthermore, many investors have left the domestic market within the past two years.  The report shows that, in order to manage the post-Covid-19 uncertainty, many investors have turned to global markets. Amongst them, investors in Japan and Indonesia are showing the most active.
