PCA Investments shut its doors last week, according to The Wall Street Journal. CIC had been PCA's only major investor and had provided almost all of its roughly US$500 million in assets.
CIC, which has been reshuffling its management recently, decided to redeem from PCA due to a strategy change, Bloomberg News reports.

PCA was based in Beijing and Hong Kong. At least five jobs have been lost at the latter site, although the fate of Hu and his Beijing-based staff is unclear, Bloomberg reports. Lau left the hedge fund last year.
