New hedge fund on OPIM platform seeks to tap into China's arbitrage opportunities

Wednesday, July 17, 2019

B. G., Opalesque Geneva for New Managers:

OP Investment Management (OPIM), Asia's leading hedge fund platform, is launching Heqi Global Absolute Return Fund SP with Qijian Global Investment Management.

The fund is Cayman-domiciled and aimed at professional investors. It focuses on the China A-Shares market, using fundamental and market data to apply statistical arbitrage models for medium to high-frequency long positions. It also seeks to minimize systematic risks by hedging swaps and index futures. The holding period for equities and futures can range from a few seconds to as long as a few weeks.

China A-shares are the stock shares of mainland China-based companies that trade on the two Chinese stock exchanges, the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE).

China's domestic stock market has grown to become the second-largest in the world. According to Value Partners, the level of foreign ownership of stocks in the Chinese domestic stock market, aka A-shares, is only at 3.5% - but it is expected to rise rapidly to between 15% and 20% in the next 10 to 15 years.
