China-Focused Hedge Fund Looks Farther Afield

Apr 3 2008 | 2:00am ET

Marco Polo Pure Asset Management has launched a new hedge fund, allowing it to explore investments outside of the Chinese mainland.

The firm, whose US$170 million China Fund has enjoyed double-digit returns for the past two years, is set to begin trading its Pan-China Master Fund today.

The new fund, unlike its predecessor, will invest in Hong Kong-listed companies and China-related securities trading overseas, while the China Fund invests entirely in domestically-traded Chinese stocks. At launch, just about one-fifth of the Pan-China fund’s US$20 million in assets will be invested in the Chinese mainland.

The firm has another US$20 million in assets coming into the fund on May 1, and expects to add another US$10 million to that by June 1.
