Mar 10 2010 | 12:26pm ET

New York-based hedge fund Atlantic Investment Management has launched a new Asia-focused hedge fund.

The $1.5 billion firm’s long/short equity fund debuted in December, HedgeFund.net reports. The new vehicle can invest across Asia with the exception of Japan.

Atlantic was founded by Alexander Roepers more than 20 years ago. The firm’s long strategy is value- and bottom-up-oriented and its short book is opportunistic and short-term.

UBS serves as prime broker for the new fund.
