Ping Capital Launches Emerging Markets Fund

Jan 12 2011 | 2:39pm ET

Former SAC Capital Advisors fund manager Ping Jiang has launched a second hedge fund after his maiden fund secured its second-straight year of triple-digit returns.

Ping Capital Management’s Emerging Markets Macro Fund debuted on Jan. 1, Dealbreaker.com reports. A source told the blog that the new fund “targets a lower [volatility] and focuses on short-term trading.”

The new fund has a $500,000 minimum investment and a one-year lockup, and charges 2% for management and 20% for performance.

Investors rushing to invest in the new fund are betting that Jiang’s ability to repeat his performance with the firm’s Exceptional Value Fund. The $155 million vehicle returned 105% last year and 193% in 2009.

Jiang is still perhaps best-known for some lurid accusations made against him by a former employee at SAC. Andrew Tong sued Jiang and SAC, alleging that Jiang made “violent sexual advances” towards him and forced him to cross-dress and take estrogen pills. Both Jiang and SAC vehemently denied the allegations, which were dismissed by an arbitration panel.
