Hong Kong-based Sun Hung Kai Financial has expanded its regional focus, launching its first private equity fund concentrating on the Asia-Pacific region.

The SHK Asian Opportunities Fund, which reached its initial target of US$100 million, invests in listed and unlisted shares, equity-linked or debt securities and physical assets, in Greater China and the wider Asia-Pacific region.

“Sun Hung Kai as a group has long had a successful track record of deal making in the Greater China region,” said Christophe Lee, CEO. “We continue to see ample opportunities and we believe this Fund represents a fantastic vehicle for us to channel our best deal flows and to generate attractive returns for our investors.”

Sun Hung Kai Financial currently has over HK$60 billion (US$7.68 billion) in assets under management, custody or advice.
