Swiss managed futures shop Dighton Capital Management is casting about for an Asian partner to help it double its assets over the next two years.

The Geneva-based firm hopes to strike a deal with an Asian financial institution to help market its wares in the region, Bloomberg News reports. Dighton hopes the arrangement would help it double its assets under management, which currently stand at about US$250 million.

Dighton CEO Edward Gurary said the firm has seen interest from Asian investors rise by 50% this year.
