The Cayman Islands-domiciled Platypus Asian Equities Fund SPC will trade the Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Australia markets, and will have a pair segregated portfolios, according to Hedgeweek.

The fund's portfolios will have a minimum of 160 large cap and high liquid stocks across the regions selected.
