As of 31 December 2022, we managed a total of USD 221 billion in AUM on behalf of institutional and individual investors globally. Our investment teams’ deep understanding of Asian markets, paired with their global expertise, is our key differentiator. We are also firmly invested in the future of our clients, our colleagues, our partners, our shareholders and the communities in which we live and operate in.
Founded in 1994, in Hong Kong and Singapore, we have since grown to 16 offices in 14 markets globally.

Today, Eastspring Investments as a group employs over 300 investment professionals, across Eastspring entities and joint ventures globally, as of 30 June 2023. The diversity of our teams fosters a culture of open communication and debate, allowing us to seek best ideas and high conviction views.
Eastspring has grown organically and through selected strategic acquisitions to become a leading asset manager, and one of the largest in Asia. We are ranked among the top ten asset management companies in seven Asian markets, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, India, and Hong Kong.
