Value Partners Again Tops Institutional Investor's Annual Ranking of the Biggest Asia-Based Single-Manager Hedge Fund Firms
NEW YORK, NY--(Korea Newswire) July 28, 2011 -- As they put the financial crisis behind them, Asia-based hedge funds are looking stronger than ever. With $8.6 billion in assets, Value Partners once again claimed the No. 1 spot in the Asia Hedge Fund 25, Institutional Investor‘s annual ranking of the region’s 25 biggest single-manager hedge fund firms. Reflecting a new maturity that has helped make Asian hedge fund managers popular with savvy investors, Hong Kong-based Value Partners is moving toward the next growth stage by expanding into Greater China and Southeast Asia. In the 12 months ended April 1, the firm saw its assets surge by more than 50 percent. During the same period, assets managed by the Asia Hedge Fund 25 grew 31.6 percent, to $47.5 billion.

In another sign that the Asian hedge fund industry is coming of age, long-short equity managers are losing their traditional dominance. The region now offers investors a diversity of investment styles. Besides currency specialist Ortus Capital Management (No. 5) and multistrategy shop Azentus Capital Management (tied for No. 13), both based in Hong Kong, the list includes Singapore macro fund Dymon Asia Capital (No. 20). Meanwhile, exciting new players emerged in 2010 and early 2011. Leading the charge is Azentus, Asia's first $1 billion hedge fund launch in recent memory.

“We're very bullish on Asian managers and the opportunity set, partly because both seem better today than in the past and offer strong alternatives to Western-based funds,” says Kent Clark, New York-based managing director of the alternative investments and manager selection group and CIO of hedge fund strategies at Goldman Sachs Asset Management.
