The fast, dynamic and growing cities of Singapore, Shanghai and Seoul along with established hubs Hong Kong and Tokyo have seen a phenomenon of unbridled expansion and relocation into Asia in the last decade - thanks to open labour markets, regulations and taxation.
With this private sector backdrop, it is unsurprising to see local governments also making positive moves into the alternative assets space; China’s introduction of a long/short investment program, South Korea's recent acceptance of onshore hedge funds.
Asia Pacific's economies have contributed to an important increase of worldwide alternative assets in recent years. New Asian hedge fund launches have raised US$20 billion since the 2008 financial crisis.
Seeing the opportunities in Asia is not hard for investors – the challenge today being able to generate performance from their large asset bases so as to ensure durability and consistent returns. Given the region’s potential, global allocators will continue to increase investment in Asia over the next decade and Asian hedge funds will be a primary beneficiary of that trend.
