Theoria Plans Fundraising Push After Strong First Year

Oct 8 2010 | 10:26am ET

Singapore-based Japan-focused hedge fund Theoria Capital Management is one of many firms planning big pushes to boost assets over the next year.

The firm, headed by former Aizawa Securities trader Minoru Umezaki, hopes to redouble its assets under management over the next 12 months, to about US$200 million. The firm has already seen its assets more than double during its first year in operation to US$115 million, buoyed by the 43% return of its Multi-Strategy Fund since its launch last October.

Umezaki called the short-term prospects for Japanese equities "difficult," by told Bloomberg News that, "under any circumstances, we continue to aim to achieve returns from mispricing, relative under/over valuation and micro/macro events with low correlation with the market movement."

The Multi-Strategy fund is up 26% this year through August.
