"In view of the incoming Basel III capital-adequacy rules and Volcker rule, banks are less likely to make investments in hedge funds, leaving more opportunity for other firms," CEO George Walker told AI on a recent visit to the region.

Currently, about 10% of Neuberger Berman's $3.7 billion in fund of hedge funds assets are invested in Asia-focused funds.
