It's no surprise that there has been a flurry of Asian-focused hedge fund launches in recent months. Hennessee Group's Asia-Pacific Index is showing year-to-date returns of 13.65%, second only to its Latin American Index, which has posted 18.48% returns YTD.

Nick Azari, chief operating officer of Aperta Asset Management, which launched a Japanese long/short equities fund April 1, said "our fund is doing extremely well. We are up about 25% in less than 9 months... Just this month we are up 6.5%."
