Paulson & Co. has become the latest U.S. hedge fund to plot its entry into the Asia-Pacific region.

The firm's Paulson Asia affiliate was awarded a Hong Kong securities license on Feb. 21, the city's Securities and Futures Commission said. Such a license is necessary to trade on Hong Kong's financial markets.

Paulson's SFC filing shows that Paulson Asia has made at least three hires for its new office: Xiaoli Deng, Sandra Lee and Winnie Wong, all formerly of Morgan Stanley.
