With the stroke of a pen, Hong Kong hedge fund Double Haven Capital has nearly doubled its assets under management.
The credit specialist won a $200 million long-only mandate from an unnamed reinsurer, which it is running as a managed account. The new strategy focuses invests in U.S. dollar-denominated Asian corporate bonds, with a bias towards investment-grade debt, Asian Investor reports.

Double Haven is planning to continue that growth, with a new direct-lending private equity fund planned for launch in the next few months.
