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