Asia’s tightening regulatory regime is helping to raise institutional appetite for Asian hedge funds, according to financial services software group Misys.

Didier Giesen, the Singapore-based hedge funds sales manager for Asia Pacific, says that as a result of the problems facing Europe due to the continent’s escalating fiscal and sovereign debt crisis, “a lot of institutional money for hedge funds will likely flow into Asia as they start to feel safe and secure in parking their money in the region”.

His comment comes as regulators around the region strengthen regulations on OTC trades,
