Resource #2: Hong Kong: Hedge fund manager LIM Advisors said Wednesday, 21 November, it expects the launch of its new Asia special situations fund to raise $500 million, reflecting strong global demand for alternative investments in the high-growth region.

Launching at a time when debt and equity markets have seen a spike in risk aversion, the fund will invest in less-liquid credit oriented instruments and transactions in sectors including infrastructure, utility and agriculture, LIM executive directors Dean Van Drasek and Steven Petersohn told Reuters. source

Resource #3: Lim Advisors plans to launch an Asia property fund initially worth up to $200 million and probably listed on a European exchange, according to veteran Hong Kong property analyst Peter Churchouse, who will run it.

Unlike during the Asian economic boom of the mid-1990s, developers have been holding back because they were badly burnt by the 1997-98 economic crisis, Churchouse said. source
