Aug 25 2017 | 5:56pm ET

Hong Kong-based hedge fund platform OP Investment Management (OPIM) has debuted a new long-baised equity strategy in partnership with Global Traveller Asset Management Company.

The new fund, managed by CEO Zheng Wang, will be domiciled in the Cayman Islands and aimed at professional investors, according to an article in HedgeWeek.

It will leverage macroeconomic and cyclical industry analysis, big data and quantitative fundamentals to discover opportunities in the U.S, Hong Kong, and China A-share equity markets. The portfolio positions will be primarly large-cap stocks and will range from high-tech and new economy sectors to traditional cyclical industries

"Our investment strategy leverages our proprietary quant model and top down allocation. The model will identify both directionally long or short opportunities,” Wang said in the article.

Wang has extensive experience in fund management. He was previously associate investment director at River Fund Investment (Shanghai) Co., and was a portfolio manager at Lord Abbott China Asset Management Company before founding Global Traveller Asset Management. He began his career at First-Trust Fund Management as an assistant analyst.

This will be OP Investment Management's first special thematic fund launched off their platform, the article continued, having signed on 16 new funds in the first half of 2017.

A unit of Hong Kong-based financial services conglomerate Oriental Patron Financial Group, OPIM manages both global and Asian-based fund vehicles with expertise across every major regional market including China, Korea, India and the Middle East. Strategies include traditional long-only, long/short, macro, and CTA via Cayman-domiciled structures, segregated portfolio companies and UCITS funds.
