Leading Asian FoHF firm SAIL Advisors has underscored its commitment to expanding in the US market by reinforcing its New York team with the addition of industry veteran Jason Filiberti. Filiberti has been appointed Senior Vice President to enhance SAIL’s client coverage in the US and will report directly to Gunther Jost, Head of Sales & Marketing in Hong Kong. SAIL has been increasing its expansion programme into the US since early 2010 in response to client interest in the firm’s Asian hedge fund expertise. Prior to joining SAIL, Filiberti worked at Robeco-Sage and most recently at Arden Asset Management.
Commenting on the expansion of the New York team, SAIL CEO John Williamson (pictured) said: “We are encouraged by the positive feedback from our clients and are pleased to continue to add resources to our New York operations. Jason will further increase the dialog and work with our clients to create bespoke investment solutions.” SAIL’s US research team currently comprises six experienced analysts focusing on US-based hedge fund managers in addition to a fully resourced team in the Hong Kong head office focusing exclusively on Asian hedge fund investments. SAIL also has a satellite research office in London. SAIL CIO Harold Yoon added: “With our proven long track record of investing in hedge funds globally, we will continue to utilize our strong research capabilities to select hedge funds that provide consistent alpha generation.”
