SAIL Advisors strengthens its US presence with new appointment

Monday, March 19, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: SAIL Advisors, one of Asia’s leading global fund of hedge fund managers, has reinforced its fast-growing team in New York with the addition of an industry veteran to help drive its expansion in the US market.

Mr. Jason Filiberti has been appointed Senior Vice President to enhance SAIL’s client coverage in the US and will report to Mr. Gunther Jost, Head of Sales & Marketing. Having worked at Robeco-Sage for many years and most recently at Arden Asset Management, Mr. Filiberti brings to SAIL his longstanding experience and knowledge in client servicing and business development in the hedge fund industry. The new hire follows the company’s expansion efforts in the US since early 2010 as SAIL sees increasing client interest in their Asian hedge fund expertise.

Commenting on the expansion of the New York office, Mr. John Williamson, Chief Executive Officer of SAIL, said “The hallmarks of SAIL are focused on-the-ground research, dedicated risk management capabilities and superior risk-adjusted returns. We are encouraged by the positive feedback from our clients and are pleased to continue to add resources to our New York operations. Jason will further increase the dialog and work with our clients to create bespoke investment solutions.”

Mr. Harold Yoon, Chief Investment Officer, added “Our research team in New York consists of six experienced analysts focusing on hedge fund managers in the US. In addition, we have a fully-resourced team in our Hong Kong head office that focuses exclusively on Asian hedge fund investments, as well as a satellite research office in London. With our proven long track record of investing in hedge funds globally, we will continue to utilize our strong research capabilities to select hedge funds that provide consistent alpha generation.”

SAIL’s outstanding prowess in the Asian hedge fund industry was recognized at the Asia Asset Management Best of the Best Performance Awards 2011, where it was named a winner in the “Asian Fund of Hedge Funds/Three years” category. In addition to its expertise in Asia, SAIL has established a presence in Europe in 2011 with the opening of its office in London, which focuses on European hedge fund research.
