Asia Hedge Fund Assets Rise, Especially In Hong Kong

Sep 24 2012 | 2:13pm ET

Asian hedge funds grew by 2.5% in the first half as Hong Kong solidified its status as the region's hedge fund hub.

Hedge funds in the region now manage US$144.09 billion. Nearly one-third of that total is managed out of Hong Kong, while the Chinese city's main competitor, Singapore, actually saw its combined hedge fund assets fall, AsiaHedge reports. Hong Kong now boasts hedge funds with US$47.06 billion to Singapore's US$19.77 billion. Japan's hedge fund industry contracted by 41% to an all-time low of US$5.72 billion.

More and more Asian hedge fund assets are actually managed in the region now, as well. Nearly 78% of Asia-focused hedge fund assets are now based in the region.
