A recent survey by global fund network Calastone shows a clear shift towards tokenisation among Asian asset managers: 61% expect to launch tokenised products within a year, compared with 67% for the United States. In Asia, enthusiasm is even more pronounced: 96% of asset managers plan to tokenise funds within three years, while 37% are currently actively implementing distributed ledger technology (DLT). The trend highlights Asia's rapid adoption of financial technology innovations, outpacing European rivals in the race. Cost savings are the main motivation for nearly a third of Asian asset managers, while a quarter see tokenisation as a way to provide a more personalised investment experience. Improving liquidity management (a segment interpreted as broadening investment access) came in third at 23%.
