The Asian private debt market kept surging, with more global fund manager raising money to invest in private opportunities in APAC. The best way for investors to protect themselves from risks is to lend money to high-quality companies and to diversify their private debt portfolio. There's a lot of appetite for good quality credit, but supply may be limited. BNPL remains a hot topic, with traditional lenders increasingly entering the space by acquiring established BNPL players, getting into partnerships with them or rolling out their own BNPL products.

More than 1 billion people in Asia still have no access to formal financial services — meaning, no formal employment, no bank account, no meaningful ability to engage in commerce online or offline. By some estimates, only 27% percent of adults have a bank account, and only 33% of firms have a loan or line of credit.

The only way for them to get the loan is to turn to alternative lenders, non-banking financial institutions aimed to solve the problem of financial inclusion.

I bet you would not guess what has been the second most adopted innovation - Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) with an 18% yearly growth for the same period. ETFs have been introduced in 1993 but it was not until 2010 when they entered adulthood with $1T of Asset under Management (AuM).

Critics raised alarms about the bubble they saw growing in private lending long before the pandemic — but the sector emerged from the crisis in a healthy position.

The private capital industry has grown to more than $7tn thanks to demanding for higher-returning but pricey and opaque strategies, spurring the likes of Schroders and JPMorgan to launch new divisions and sending others on the prowl for acquisitions.
