Editorial

Thursday, May 09, 2013

Welcome to the May issue of Asia Pacific Intelligence where we feature two new Australian hedge fund firms, two surveys from Japan showing that their institutions will increase investment in alternatives over this year, and a New Zealand absolute return house that is looking for like-minded company.

Sona Blessing of Opalesque Radio has interviewed Lanny Lim, a portfolio manager at SAIL Advisors. You can listen to that interview here.

I hope you enjoy this issue and do feel free to send me your news.

Kind regards
