Stefan Nilsson launches hedge fund advisory firm in Tokyo

Thursday, September 01, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update – Hedge fund wizard Stefan Nilsson launched a hedge fund advisory and research business in Tokyo on Wednesday, AsianInvestor reported.

The new firm is called HFC Advisory and will assist investors in the alternative investments industry by providing them information, particularly for setting up operations in Japan and other parts of Asia.

HFC Advisory will conduct its own surveys about the hedge fund industry in the region, including specific research commissioned by interested clients. The report added that the advisory firm is set to publish a survey on Japanese hedge fund investors soon.

Nilsson told AsianInvestor, “I have the right knowledge and long-term relationships to assist global fund managers with growing their business in the Asia-Pacific region. Having boots and brains on the ground is the only way to better understand Japanese and Asian investors and start building the relationships that fund managers need to succeed.”

Nilsson was known for launching the Hedge Funds Club in Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong (where he was also well known for hosting great industry parties.

Nilsson founded the first Hedge Funds Club in Tokyo in June 2005 as an informal industry network with the intention of providing a networking venue among hedge fund managers in Asia and at the same time help the region’s hedge fund industry through networking. The club has grown into Asia's largest network for hedge fund managers and institutional investors.

In February 2008, Nilsson launched the Singapore Hedge Funds Club and drew close to 200 members. The first ever by invitation only networking party was held at the exclusive Tower Club at Raffles Place in the heart of Singapore’s financial district. Guests were treated with a spectacular view of Singapore while partying on the 64th floor of the Republic Plaza’s The Straits Bar.

The club continues to hold social events each year in the Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo and has become an important meeting place for investors and hedge fund managers.
