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?
