City Financial has launched a new hedge fund, which the firm called the largest of its kind over the past year.
The British firm said it had garnered US$120 million for the Counterpoint Asian Macro Fund. The vehicle is led by fund manager Geoffrey Barker, during which he hopes to achieve double-digit annualized returns.

“Most other Asian macro funds with a long-standing track record and team are closed to new capital, so capital-raising success in part represents investor demand for an uncorrelated strategy with relatively few available managers.”
