Asia Pacific Intelligence

Editorial

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

Welcome to the April issue of Asia Pacific Intelligence. This issue has a bit of a theme of blending European and Asian investment skills and opportunities. We open with a profile of a company that combines Europe and Hong Kong, with an interview with Max Gottschalk of Gottex Penjing Asset Management. Gottschalk believes there are unique investment opportunities in Asia. Another European and Asian mix is profiled with Michael Kretschmer's Japanese long/short hedge fund, the Pelargos Japan Alpha Fund, managed from the Netherlands, and invested in by Aegon. A travelling Finn based in Singapore, Seppo Leskinen, tells us about Karelia Asia, his financial advisory firm working for institutional investors offering advice on various Asian and African asset classes and offering, Leskinen says: "Nordic values."
