GAM Holding has launched a new fund focused on Southeast Asia, which the firm calls "the new powerhouse for Asia."
The Star Emerging Asia Equity Fund is helmed by top manager Michael Lai, who runs GAM's Star China Equity Fund, and Camille Vergara. The new fund, however, will steer clear of China, focusing instead on countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
