Launch of Withers Asia regional funds centre


Asia has seen unprecedented economic growth and wealth accumulation over the past three decades. This has attracted global investment funds focusing on asset classes ranging from traditional real estate and private equity, to intellectual property and distressed assets. The prospects for further growth are excellent, prompting the formation of medium-to-large sized funds focusing on the Asia-Pacific region.
