Hedge fund distribution and seeding firm Triple A Partners has announced that it is partnering with SPARX Asset Management to help that firm further develop its marketing activities outside of Japan.
“It has been a challenging two years for both Japan and for SPARX, but we now feel that interest in Japan is finally starting to come back after a long period of skepticism towards the region,” said Shuhei Abe, Chairman of SPARX, an independent investment company headquartered in Tokyo with assets under management of approximately US$2.8 billion.
“We believe it is time to aggressively promote Japan as a market where opportunities for generating returns are more visible than ever from various perspectives,” added Abe. “Our strategic relationship with Triple A Partners represents an important step for us on the road to reaching out to investors around the world and helping them to take advantage of these opportunities.”
Hans Tiedemann, chairman of Triple A Partners, said “We are honored to have the opportunity to work with SPARX – one of Japan’s first and most respected independent asset management boutiques to specialize in Japanese equities, and now the biggest Asia-based single-manager hedge fund firm.
