Enjoy the issue!
In this issue we bring you our annual Asian Art Report, where we found out how market players are looking to Asia for renewed growth amidst declining global art sales. What’s interesting to note is that in 2016, 31% of what Christie’s sold worldwide went to Asian buyers. More interestingly, of the top 10 works sold by Sotheby’s last year, half were purchased by buyers from Asia.
We also looked at what’s happening in Singapore’s mergers & acquisitions space, and which deals wowed us in the past year. For one of our sector reports we talked to real estate agencies and discovered how they are turning to Uber-like technology to stay in business. These days it’s all about tech tools.
We also bring you our 40 & Under list where we learned a little bit more about the young and hardworking CMOS driving growth in their companies. Inside you’ll also find our lists of the largest hotels and serviced residences in Singapore.
