Asia-focused hedge fund Monsoon Capital Management is preparing an offshore version of its systematic strategy.
The new fund will be the third version of the strategy; the first was launched in the U.S. in August and a UCITS III-compliant version followed in September. The Cayman Islands-domiciled version will debut next month, HFMWeek reports.
The fund, which currently manages $35 million across its two versions, is a trend-following strategy that invests in Asian equity markets.
