In this new year, the confidence in the performance potential of emerging markets in Asia-Pacific and beyond are expected to continue.
According to our Asia-Pacific private equity outlook, Asia-Pacific's private equity volumes and deals look set to rise in 2014 with acquisitions taking the lead. In addition, our latest attractiveness study found that Russia is gaining FDI momentum with its changing business environment, expanding middle class and highly skilled workforce.
Amid optimism, the risks facing organizations are getting more profound, and unique to the sector. Insurers in Singapore are expected to up the ante on enterprise risk management with new regulations in place this year. We discuss the implementation issues, as well as present a new journal on the global developments and challenges in banking and capital markets, asset management and insurance.
