That's the sentiment of Daiwa Securities, according to Keiko Tashiro, the Japanese bank's senior executive managing director, who said the group will continue to expand within the region.
"It's something that's very difficult to predict in terms of what's going to happen with North Korea, so we look at the risks we have, but we also look at the growth that's surrounding the area," Tashiro, who also heads Daiwa's overseas operations, said at the sidelines of Milken Institute's Asia Summit 2017.
"So from our point of view, despite what's happening in North Korea, a lot of our resources are dedicated to Asia. And I think that will continue," she added.
Tashiro named Southeast Asia as an important market to expand into as the region looks to be a key beneficiary of the China-led "One Belt, One Road" initiative.
"We look at ("One Belt, One Road") because it might change a lot of things: the geopolitical connection between Asia and Europe, how much is going to be put into infrastructure, in terms of how people are going to move. So Southeast Asia obviously will be part of it and it will be very important," she said.
Daiwa has been ramping up its presence in Southeast Asia. Last year, it invested nearly 20 billion yen (about $181 million) in a Vietnamese securities company and a Malaysian investment bank. It also bought shares in a Myanmar internet service provider and is working with the frontier country's government to develop its capital market.
