The Hong Kong hedge fund industry now contains a more experienced crowd of managers, but
also more emerging managers, who use a greater variety of strategies and instruments. As one of
Asia’s main financial hubs, Hong Kong is also seeing a renewal of interests from Western
allocators, who are setting up shop there in droves.
The territory does not just present a stable regulatory environment, low taxes, and more local
money to court; it also supports the great Greater China story.
This Roundtable also covers:
What strategies are being launched in Hong Kong?
What kind of emerging managers are there in Hong Kong?
What are the investment opportunities and the macro prospects in China?
Why was the China hedge fund industry called the grey market? Where is it heading now?
What Asian markets are currently attractive?
What are the challenges and key investment risks? Will Western regulation affect the industry? Is the investment space being over-crowded? Is non-risk taking such a high risk on the industry?
How difficult is the current fund raising environment? What deals are managers cutting to attract capital?
Is the UCITS structure likely to work in Asia?
The Hong Kong Roundtable took place on September 16th, 2010, at the local offices of Bingham
McCutchen, who also sponsored the event, and included the following experts:
Daniel Ghirardi, Chief Executive Officer, SYZ & CO
Vincent Duhamel, Chief Executive Officer, SAIL Advisors
