Fund of hedge funds shop Ivy Asset Management has opened an office in Hong Kong, its second in Asia.
Alex Balfour, who joined the firm as head of client development for Asia ex-Japan last year, will lead the new office, which will provide hedge fund and customized service to both institutional and high net-worth investors.

Jericho, N.Y.-based Ivy, which is part of BNY Mellon Asset Management, opened a Tokyo office in 2004.
