Weru looks to grow through alliances


Weru Asset Management, one of the few fund managers specialising in Japanese credit, is seeking partners for growth.

The firm is already seeing strong interest from Japanese institutions looking to put money into steady alpha-generating strategies this year.

The Weru Japan Credit Fund was first seeded by Vision Angel Fund, and following the takeover of Vision Angel by Samena Capital, Weru is expecting to partner with and leverage off Samena's considerable marketing resources and networking amongst its investors to aid in the growth of its fund.

Weru's parent company Weru Investment is also expected to raise around $200
