A new report from Hedgeweek.com reveals there are now 500 hedge fund managers based in Asia, out of around 750 Asian-focused hedge funds globally.
Asia has evolved very rapidly from a marginal backwater of the global hedge funds industry to a critical and rapidly growing source of new capacity and diversified opportunities.
