Jasper Capital Becomes Second China-Based HFSB Signatory

Aug 14 2017 | 6:16pm ET

Jasper Capital, a systemic investment manager founded in 2013 in Shenzhen, China, has become the second China-based signatory to the Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB).

The London-based HFSB was created in 2008 as the standard-setting body for the global hedge fund industry and now has a growing membership internationally in both Asia and North America. To join, signatories must show they uphold the group's standards and will adhere to a range of best practices and standards in such areas as investor communication, proxy voting, conflicts of interest, asset valuation, and risk management. 

In addition, the HFSB proactively works with members on addressing crucial issues, such as cybersecurity.  The group is supported by more than 125 hedge fund managers managing roughly one-third of the industry’s AUM, and by more than 60 global institutional investors investing some $600 billion in hedge funds.

As prudent stewards of client capital and as part of a commitment to adhering to the highest international standards, Jasper welcomes the HFSB's effort to enhance global industry standards and facilitate investor due diligence, the company said in a statement.

Jasper's logic-based investment approach currently deploys some $1.5 billion into Chinese equity markets across four strategies: long-only bias, long/short equity, market neutral and seasoned equity offerings.
