In the first place, the extremely high expectations of consumers in the region for seamless and personalized digital experiences inspire a great deal of innovation. Firms in mainland China and other markets are experimenting widely — and delivering impressive results — with new products, new distribution models and new technology.In addition, regulators in multiple jurisdictions are increasingly focused on capital standards, consumer protection and financial reporting, thus rising regulatory costs.Moreover, rising economic uncertainty, largely due to global trade tensions slows down growth in several countries, including those that experienced the strongest recent growth, while creating new winners in global trade. What also sheds light to the problem is the low interest rates, particularly in the advanced markets, though developing ones are increasingly impacted, too.
