Singapore is top APAC market with lowest investor risk in Q1

This as the region continues to struggle with economic conditions.

A GlobalData study cited Singapore as the market with the lowest investor risk in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, which faces challenging economic conditions due to increased financing costs in major APAC economies and weakened external demand. 

In the first quarter of 2023, Singapore’s global rank is at third place. Regionally, the risk score for remained unchanged over the last quarter at 42.4 out of 100 during the first quarter (Q1) 2023 but higher compared to 42 in Q1 2022.

Following Singapore in the APAC rank are Taiwan and New Zealand. Hong Kong is fourth lowest risk, then Japan. 

The highest risk countries are Cambodia, Mongolia, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan,  and Bangladesh.

Puja Tiwari, Economic Research Analyst at GlobalData, said the Chinese economy posted robust performance in Q1 2023 but declining investments, inflation much lower than Central Bank’s target, real estate crisis and high youth unemployment rate point may still have a ripple effect on the APAC region.

The APAC region faces risks, including economic instability and humanitarian crises, said GlobalData.
