Komfie Manalo, Opalesque Asia: A hedge fund manager who attended the latest Opalesque 2013 West Coast Roundtable has expressed a bullish outlook on global telecom and cable, media and gaming industry.

Chris Ainsworth COO and CFO of registered investment advisor Maerisland Capital, LLC, said that because the market is enjoying high liquidity, the rise in tide is lifting everything at this point that has created opportunities not only on the long side of investing and riding the wave but also on the short side.
