The Asian Hedge Funds industry improves during 2012 first half
The Asian Hedge Funds industry improves during 2012 first half

The AsiaHedge Asset Survey, released on September 21st 2012, reported, for the first six months of the year, a net progress for the whole Asian Hedge Fund industry.

The report reviled a positive increase of 2.5% that brought the total assets for the industry from USD140.62bn, at the end of 2011, to USD144bn in June 2012. The increase was partially due to a substantial boost in the overall assets for funds based in Hong Kong, which, in the first half of the year, hit a record of USD47.1bn.
The period January-June 2012 experienced a booming growth for multi-strategy funds that have reached a total of USD18.31bn, representing as much as 13% of the entire Asian market. On the contrary, assets managed by Japanese funds hit an all-time low USD5.72bn, after declining 41%. 
Finally, the report highlights how the Asian-Pacific market is becoming every day more important to investors and funds that have moved into this region, from outside Asia, about USD112.15bn (representing as much as 78% of the Asian-Pacific hedge fund industry’s assets). This trend represents a remarkable progress from the previous year, confirming that the region is increasingly becoming a central financial market.
