Sydney, Australia-based Platypus Capital Management is launching a new Asian equity long/short fund to complement its existing Australian systematic long/short offering.
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 first portfolio is being seeded by the same Swiss-based investor that seeded the Platypus Australian fund nearly three years ago.
The fund's portfolios will have a minimum of 160 large cap and high liquid stocks across the regions selected.
