TSI Taps Hedgie To Advise On Asian Business

Sep 12 2011 | 7:35am ET

Canadian real estate asset manager TSI International Group has recruited a former global macro hedge fund manager to build the firm’s growing Asian business.

Tokyo-based Stefan Nilsson left his executive director job at JP Morgan earlier this year. He is the founder and CEO of HFC Advisory, a firm that works with global alternative investment managers and Asian investors. Nilsson’s resume also includes time at the now-defunct Bear Stearns.

In his new role with TSI, Nilsson will serve as a senior adviser to its Asian operations, focusing on the firm’s growing business with Japanese and Asian investors. TSI’s investment activities primarily involve land banking and urban renewal in the Greater Toronto area of Canada, while most of its clients are Asian investors.
 
“Stefan is one of the best connected people in the Japanese and Asian alternative investment industry. With him on our team we plan to further grow our business, especially on the institutional side in Asia where we see great growth potential as investors are increasing their exposure to alternative investments,” said Stephen Huggins, president of TSI International Group KK.
