SkyBridge Capital’s Asia hedge fund conference could be on the move.
The New York-based firm, whose annual SkyBridge Alternatives Conference in Las Vegas may be the most prominent industry gathering, has held a second conference in Singapore in each of the past two years. The third installment of SALT Asia is scheduled for October.
The fourth may be held elsewhere: CNBC reports that SkyBridge has told its conference partners that SALT Asia could be on the move in 2015. Asia’s largest hedge fund center and Singapore’s chief regional rival, Hong Kong, is under consideration, as are Macau, Seoul and Tokyo.
About 1,000 people have attended each of the first two SALT Asia conferences.
SkyBridge is also mulling another expansion, with groups from Abu Dhabi, Argentina, Brazil, Dubai, Monaco, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey having approached the group.
“We are committed to SALT in Asia,” SkyBridge’s business development chief Victor Oviedo told CNBC. “We’re always evaluating how to expand the conference. But at this point there’s nothing concrete planned outside of the U.S. and Asia events.”
