Our first survey of Asia-Pacific administrators reveals a very diverse and fragmented market
In line with our sister hedge fund publications in Europe and the US, AsiaHedge is now undertaking the first in what will be a regular annual survey of market share among administrators in the Asia-Pacific hedge fund industry.
The findings of this year's initial review, which draws on the AsiaHedge database and associated new fund survey, reveal that HSBC is very much the leading administrator in the region - with a confirmed number of 200 funds, or about 22% of the market by mandates. In terms of total assets under administration, HSBC's confirmed share is nearly 19% - though, after discounting those funds which are either self-administered or undisclosed, HSBC's market share by assets is over 25%.
