London and Singapore-based Chirin Capital this month is launching the Chirin Asia Absolute Alpha Fund, a Dublin-domiciled Ucits III offering that will invest in Asian markets excluding Japan.
The fund is benchmarked against the MSCI AC Asia Pacific ex-Japan Index and employs futures, options and tactical cash weightings. It will combine strategic top-down global overview with bottom-up stock picking.
The investment team is based in both London and Singapore and is headed by chief investment officer and lead manager Martin Shenfield, who previously managed funds for Fidelity International and TT International.
“Despite the current extraordinary challenges to global capital markets, the long-term strategic case for investment in Asia remains undiminished,” said Shenfield. “However the severe market turbulence experienced so far this year re-emphasizes that investing in Asian markets is as much about risk management as traditional stock-picking.”
