4. Manufacturing leaders – The US Technology sector run-up on stocks (like Apple) is well documented by the media in 2020. While Apple devices are well recognised to be innovative and high quality, many of the firm’s internal components are reliant on Asia Pacific manufacturers such as Taiwanese TSMC for processor chip, Japan’s Sony for camera and South Korean Samsung Electronics for screen for example.

Asia tech giants are not just dominant in their regional markets, they are increasingly global leaders. Many Asia tech leaders are outperforming global peers by significant margins due to favourable demographics and ever-improving R&D, for instance Alibaba has outperformed Amazon over the long term.

Investing in Asia Pacific technology can be complimentary extension to global technology exposure within one’s portfolio; at more reasonable valuation.
