Some Asian Hedge Funds Making Gains in Stock Turmoil

Some Asian hedge funds are actually doing well in this volatile market, according to Thomson Reuters. Vulpes, a hedge fund ran by hedge fund star Stephen Diggle, and Tantallon Capital have emerged as winners at a time when many investors--including many hedge funds--have been racking up losses over the last few days.
Asian hedge funds Vulpes, started by industry veteran Stephen Diggle, and Tantallon Capital are emerging as winners in a volatile August that has wiped out more than $3.8 trillion from global stock markets.

Diggle, who made a fortune during the financial crisis, said his long Asian volatility and arbitrage hedge fund LAVA gained about 4 percent in the first six trading days of the month.

The fund gained as its bets on volatility going up paid off as the U.S. government struggled to piece together a deal addressing its long-term fiscal problems and S&P cut its AAA rating.

Tantallon Capital, founded in 2003 by former Morgan Stanley wealth management executive Alex Hill and Nicholas Harbinson, who earlier worked at Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs , gained 4.15 percent in its flagship fund last week, according to a letter to investors seen by Reuters. Source
