Ercil Garners US$1.1B For Second Fund, Largest Asia Launch Of The Year

Dec 9 2013 | 12:48pm ET

Perry Capital's former Asia chief has achieved the largest hedge fund launch of the year in the region, netting more than US$1 billion for his second fund.

Hong Kong-based Asia Research & Capital Management's existing investors—who number a mere 15 to 20—pledged the full US$1.1 billion raised for the firm's Fund II. Barring a larger launch in the next three weeks, Alp Ercil's ARCM will house the largest Asia launches of both 2012 and 2013; the firm closed its first fund last summer with US$940 million.

ARCM employs a private-equity style strategy, and has fully invested its first fund. Indeed, Fund II is actually more like a p.e. fund, boasting a five-year lifespan. Fund I has a three-year lifespan with a possible one-year extension.

Ercil set up ARCM in 2011, after Perry closed its Asia office. Ercil spent about a decade at the hedge fund.
