SkyBridge Capital has set its sights on Asia.
The New York-based fund of hedge funds plans an office, a fund and a conference for the region in the coming year-and-a-half, Asian Investor reports. The firm will mark its entry into Asia with the first SkyBridge Alternatives Singapore Conference, modeled after the firm's hugely successful annual Las Vegas confab, in October.
