Henderson Group and Tantallon Capital are closing their Asia-based funds due to the tough capital-rising environment for Asia-based hedge funds; it was later reported that Henderson Group, the dual London and Sydney-listed fund manager, posted a bigger-than-estimated gain in full-year profit as management fees climbed after its purchase of Gartmore Group Ltd. Attara Capital, the hedge fund co-chaired and founded by Nat Rothschild, is to liquidate its operations, said the FT, as a result of adverse trading conditions and difficulty raising new money from investors.
