Sensato grows AUM on back of strong returns


A San Francisco-based quant fund focused on Asian equities, the Sensato Asia Pacific Master Fund, continues to grow – reaching assets of nearly $700 million in July after receiving significant inflows from US-based allocators.

Sources say interest on the fund among institutional allocators has perked up even more after it delivered a robust 3.53% gain in July.

That brought year-to-date return to 8.81% – which came after a gain of 19.35% last year, making it one of the best performing quant funds in the region. The fund has delivered excellent annualised returns of 20.25% since it was launched
