Alternatives Placement Agent Expands Asian Presence

Mar 31 2014 | 3:43pm ET

Monument Group, a leading independent alternative investment fund placement agent, has opened offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo.

“Asian investors are becoming an increasingly important source of capital for alternative investment funds,” said Bob Mast, Monument Group partner. “In addition, we see a continuous demand from investors elsewhere for exposure to Asian funds. Given our global focus, it is a natural step for Monument Group to be on the ground in both Hong Kong and Tokyo.”

Mast leads Monument Group’s efforts in Asia, while also retaining some responsibilities at the firm’s headquarters in Boston. Monument Group has a London office, which was established in 2005.

Monument has been active in the Asian markets for many years; most recently completing a $750,000,000 fund raise for Phoenix Asia Real Estate Investments Fund V, a Hong Kong-based real estate fund.
