  • Citigroup expects to see double-digit growth in assets serviced by its recently expanded Asia-Pacific prime brokerage arm, as it seeks more business with global hedge funds setting up in the region. Even with tumbling stock markets impairing the performance of most Asia-focused hedge funds, many well-resourced overseas managers have stepped up their focus on the region.
  • Another excellent overview of the Asian hedge fund industry
  • The Asian hedge fund industry is coming of age, with funds having had a stellar year in 2003; the Eurekahedge Asian hedge fund index was up by 27% and assets under management rose about 75%.

  • Asia-focused hedge funds have taken a beating this year and investors are shying away from managers who not too long ago were seeing double-digit returns. Funds investing in India and China produced the worst performance of any specific hedge fund classification after leading all hedge funds for much of 2007, according to
  • Asian Hedge Funds: There’s no substitute for local knowledge
  • Asian hedge fund managers will very likely close down or be bought out in growing numbers this year in a painful bout of consolidation triggered by the financial market turmoil. Combined with tougher barriers for potential start-ups, the number of Asian hedge funds could actually shrink in the near term, putting a still-growing pool of investor cash in the pockets of larger, established players.
  • Assets invested in hedge funds focused on Asia fell by 10 percent from USD111bn to USD100bn during the first quarter of 2008, a period in which global financial markets declined broadly and volatility increased sharply, according to Chicago-based industry data provider Hedge Fund Research.
  • A decade ago, it would have been rather controversial to talk about hedge funds, given the Asian economies were hard hit by a severe financial crisis widely believed to be triggered by a group of aggressive hedge funds at that time. Today, the hedge-fund industry has become an important driving force in the global financial markets. At present, there are about 10,000 hedge funds around the world with assets under management amounting to US$2.5 trillion.
  • Extensive report on hedge funds in Asia.
  • Hedge Funds build up manpower in Asia
  • Asia’s hedge fund industry is growing rapidly as global investors zero in on the region and more traders and fund managers choose to strike out on their own. At the same time, Asian investors are warming up to hedge funds, which offer them a chance to earn higher returns and spread their risks wider than if they just relied on traditional investments like stocks and bonds.
  • Although the pace of growth of the Asian hedge funds industry has lessened compared with the past two years, in absolute terms, the growth is still substantial, with more than US$30 billion in net assets estimated to flow into Asian hedge funds in 2006.

  • The hedge-fund party may be over in Asia. After years in which the number and assets of Asia-focused hedge funds have steadily risen, prime brokers and hedge fund managers say they expect a larger number of managers to fold up the tent this year because declining equity returns mean the hedge-fund managers themselves won’t be making much money.
  • Hedge funds are suddenly the rage in Asia. That's an ironic turn of events in a region that just seven years ago blamed speculative trading for its worst financial crisis in decades. It's no mystery why hedge funds find Asia attractive. Since markets here are less researched and less liquid than Western ones, the kind of inefficiencies on which such outfits thrive abound.
