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%.
