DKR Oasis CIO Fischer readies spin-off


Seth Fischer, the Hong Kong-based CIO of DKR Oasis Management and a highly regarded credit-focused hedge fund professional in Asia, is understood to be spinning off and restarting his venture under the Oasis moniker.

The new fund is expected to have a pan-Asia multi-strategy mandate and launch is expected at around $100 million, given Fischer's pedigree. DKR Oasis Management was formed as a joint-venture between Hong Kong-based Oasis Management and Stamford-headquartered DKR. Fischer joined DKR Capital from Highbridge Capital, where he was a star international convertibles trader.
