Russia’s invasion of Ukraine deeply impacted emerging markets in 2022. With investor sentiment shifting towards emerging Asia-Pacific markets, especially India, Vietnam and Taiwan, fund flow data from EPFR reveals that other regions, such as Latin America, underperformed despite the opportunities that the war in Europe created for them.
The biggest surprise, however, was the ever-growing investment appetite towards China. The country’s ‘zero-Covid’ policy and the tensions with Taiwan didn’t stop money flow during the Year of the Tiger, as other neighbouring countries within the region experienced a similar scenario.

- In-depth China: equity and hedge funds
- Daily fund flows towards APAC countries
- South Korea’s case
- …And more.
