HFC Advisory Group, the Tokyo-based alternatives investments shop, has recruited some royalty for its board—Prince Andreas von und zu Liechtenstein.
The prince has been active in the global finance industry in the UK, France, Sweden and South Africa since 1998 and currently serves as president of the Scandinavian Association of the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta.
“Due to the successful launch of the firm earlier this year and the great response from our clients in the hedge fund, private equity and real estate areas, we are now expanding the firm to position ourselves for future growth. We see great demand for our services and will selectively add additional clients in 2012. By appointing Prince Andreas as a board member we now have a senior representative in Europe who will be a great addition to our team,” said Stefan Nilsson, HFC’s CEO. The firm also plans additional hires in Asia in the coming months.
HFC’s clients include hedge funds, private equity funds, real estate funds and other alternative investments managers.
Nilsson is a former hedge fund executive who has also worked in capital introduction and asset management at Bear Stearns and JPMorgan. He is the founder of the Hedge Funds Club network in Tokyo, Singapore and Hong Kong.
