Asia, unlike the US, is not a homogeneous region and
each country has its own peculiarities that add to the
potential alpha-generating opportunities
Niki Natarajan, InvestHedge
What is clear about Asia is that it is not a
homogeneous arena - like the US, nor is one centre simply the
only hedge fund capital - as London is to Europe. And it seems
that part of the trick of maximising potential returns is the
ability to pick the market that is going to be the next hotbed
of activity. This will involve keeping an eye on changing
regulation, which will affect investors, as well as the type of
instruments that can be developed. Until now Japan has really
been the investment centre of Asia, and for this reason it
seems to have an ecosystem all of its own. But beyond Japan,
what are the other hot markets in Asia?
