While global growth has taken a beating, Asia remains poised to continue its sustainable growth path once the COVID-19 pandemic abates, supported by trends like favourable demographics, a rising middle class and high digital adoption.

So, how can investors draw a sustainable income stream while at the same time get exposure to a range of investment growth themes across Asia?
