Zeal China Fund awarded Best New Asian Hedge Fund 2011 by Eurekahedge

Wednesday, May 25, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - Zeal Asset Management announced that Zeal China Fund has received the “Best New Asian Hedge Fund Award 2011” by Eurekahedge.

Zeal China Fund, a Greater-China Long Short equity hedge fund was launched in January 2010 and has been acknowledged by many global institutional investors for their outstanding performance. Alexander Mearns, Chief Executive Officer of Eurekahedge commented "The best new Asian hedge fund award has traditionally been handed to the best performing new fund both in terms of quantitative performance and qualitative values. After much deliberation by our esteemed panel of judges, this year we are delighted to present the award to Zeal China Fund".

Jacky Choi, Chief Investment Officer at Zeal believes China will become one of the most important platforms for the fund management industry in the next decades. However, Jacky stresses that while investors may identify attractive themes in China, “the key to investment success still lies in understanding the fundamentals of a company through conducting vigorous bottom-up research and extensive reality checks: stock-picking is still the key when it comes to China investing,” said Jacky.

From day one, the Zeal team has committed to build an institutionalized infrastructure for investment research as well as risk management and operations. “We believe this is what our investors are looking for. We are very glad that our efforts are reflected in our fund’s performance and are recognized by the market today”, concluded Franco Ngan, CEO of Zeal Asset Management.
