Oriental Patron to invest US$250 million into Asian Emerging Managers

HONG KONG, Sept 1, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - OP Investment Management Ltd (OPIM) in association with the Oriental Patron Financial Group (OPFG), a leading player in asset management industry, today announced its plans to invest up to US$250 million in emerging managers on its hedge fund platform.

OPIM, in cooperation with a consortium of regional hedge fund advisors and allocators, will raise capital to participate into early stage regional emerging managers who have built their track record on the OPIM platform. While open to any Asia-based manager across any strategy, OPIM believes the program will be especially beneficial to onshore PRC managers looking to expand their strategy offshore, where they will have unrestricted access to global instruments whilst maintaining their edge in China research.

Alvin Fan, Chief Executive Officer of OPIM, is confident of the program's timing. "Believe it or not, the China-focused asset management industry is at the doorstep of a renaissance period. Sure, PRC saw massive outflows in 2015, and yes, regulation has accelerated as a result, driving investors and managers into the global space. At the same time, we're confident fund flows will return. Between the instability in the EU post-Brexit and peak valuations in US, there will be a tremendous amount of transitional liquidity returning Asia."

However, OPIM also sees opportunities for non-traditional hedge fund strategies. "Don't underestimate the rise of the quants; the talent we're seeing out of Shenzhen and Shanghai can be competitive at a global level. While we're already working with some of the best minds in the market, we're convinced there's more talent out there." Fan observes.

OPIM launched its Sunrise SPC program for emerging managers in January this year and is scheduled to have launched 12 funds by the end of Q3.

OPIM recently signed a partnership with Academia Capital Management (Shenzhen)'s Charles Wang. Charles was previously the Senior Partner at Acadian Asset Management, CEO of E Fund Management (Hong Kong) and CIO of Bosera Asset Management (Shenzhen), and they are scheduled to launch an actively managed offshore global version of their quantitative China long-short strategy for Q4, 2016.

Philippe Zhang also partnered with OPIM to launch a global macro multi-asset fund later this year. Philippe, who is returning to Hong Kong to spearhead his new fund, was previously with AXA IM in Paris and was the ex-CIO of AXA SPDB Shanghai.

"Access to capital completes a final but vital puzzle piece. Vintage 2017 funds will not only have infrastructure, proper business establishment, but they'll also have early access to investors ready to participate", Fan said.
