Welcome to the February 2017 edition of APAC Insider.

In this edition, we reflect on the innovative, dedicated and results-focused culture that has seen the Asia Pacific region become home to some of the most prominent industry-leading businesses in the world.

In recent news, Magister Advisors analysis suggests that 2017 will be a watershed year for Asian investment into European tech. Perversely we think the most active ‘European’ destination will be the UK. There are several factors combining to set the stage for a potentially landmark year for Asian capital into Europe.

Despite the global uncertainty brought about by recent events such as Brexit and policy direction of the incoming Trump administration, the outlook for energy and environment markets in 2017 is largely viewed to be balanced with a slight positive inclination, according to Frost & Sullivan.

I hope you enjoy reading this inspiring edition.
