ABOUT PUBLICATION

Asia’s portfolio investors continue to invest more outside the region. Outward debt investment from Asian economies stood at $4.0 trillion in 2016, up from $3.6 trillion in 2015, driven largely by the region’s higher
investments in the European Union (EU) (up $110 billion) and the United States (US) (up $224 billion). Outward equity investment outstanding also rose to $3.5 trillion from $3.2 trillion. Asia’s continued portfolio investment bias toward outside the region has led to a lower intraregional outward debt (equity) investment share—at 15.3% (19.0%) in 2016 from 16.7% (20.0%) in 2015.
