the new global normal
APAC & EU investor online event
Investor interest in Asia has never been higher: looking to understand the shape and scope of the recovery in Asian markets; to assess 'the new normal' for countries who have experienced COVID-19 for longer; and to model how Europe and US may follow in these footsteps.
This Neudata event, in partnership with Morgan Stanley as Platinum Sponsor, will dive deep into this theme. The event will unpack the data and tools that investors can use to track the macro trends in the major APAC economies, as well as to spot the behaviours, sectors and companies emerging and thriving.
