Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Opalesque Roundtable Series - the Opalesque New Zealand Roundtable.
In an Opalesque Roundtable, we unite some of the leading hedge fund managers (single and multi strategy managers) as well as representatives of the local investor base (institutions, fund of funds, advisers) to gain unique insights into the specific idiosyncrasies and developments, the issues and advantages of each hedge fund center.
We have chosen to focus on New Zealand in our first Roundtable issue to underline the value of this new Opalesque publication. No matter if you are a hedge fund investor looking for new talent, a hedge fund interested in diversifying your investor base or a service provider looking for new clients, you will get to know some of the leading heads of each hedge fund center and find invaluable information and intelligence right on your desk, without any travel involved.
The Opalesque New Zealand Roundtable was sponsored by Minter Ellison Rudd Watts Lawyers(www.minterellison.co.nz) and took place in their Auckland office.
The participants of the Opalesque New Zealand Roundtable are:
Who are some of the leading local New Zealand hedge fund managers, their style and strengths
The steps which one of the largest state government pension fund is taking to become a hedge fund investor
The "guerrilla tactics" New Zealand hedge funds apply in order to find attention, despite the fact that "about 90% of hedge fund analysts, as soon as they hear you are from New Zealand, they make a mental note to try and find a reason to shoot you down because they don’t want to come to New Zealand"
How a New Zealand fund of funds, operating since 1991, manages to get into the best of breed hedge funds even though they may be closed for other investors
What could be the future of a New Zealand hedge fund industry?
