We are delighted to announce that Hugh Sloane, the co-founder of London-based Sloane Robinson Investment Management and a pioneer of Asian equity and hedge fund investing, will be delivering a keynote address at this year's annual AsiaHedge Forum.
The AsiaHedge Forum 2014, HedgeFund Intelligence's flagship Asian event, will be held on Thursday 24 April at the JW Marriott Hotel in Hong Kong – under the overall theme this year of 'Understanding Asian Alpha'.
Sloane, a keen follower of fundamentals-based investing, will share his journey in Asian investing since the early days of the region's hedge fund industry some 20 years ago. He will also share his thoughts on why he continues to be bullish on Japan and China, and how to best play key Asia themes.
The AsiaHedge Forum is attracting significant attention this year, given the resurgence of investor interest in Asia. In addition, the winds of change blowing through key Asian markets, such as China, Japan and India, are leading to unprecedented investment opportunities in the region – all of which makes the Forum and its discussions especially timely.
This year, the focus will be on exploring the changing macro-economic environment globally and its implications for Asia, as well as on the hedge fund strategies that can capitalise on the emerging pockets of opportunity across the region to deliver true alpha.
With Asia now sporting a home-grown set of highly-credible billion dollar hedge fund shops, the Forum will also look at successful business-building strategies that will help to make Asian managers into world-class institutional-standard firms.
Known for the quality of its content, speakers and networking opportunities, the AsiaHedge Forum attracts high-class participants and delegates from all over the world – comprising top Asian hedge fund managers (from within and outside Asia), leading global investors and some of the best brains in the macro-economic, policy-making, thought leadership and hedge fund consulting spheres.
Further details on speakers and the programme for this year's AsiaHedge Forum will be announced over the coming weeks.
