JP Morgan Releases Guide to Launching Hedge Funds in Asia

JP Morgan Worldwide Securities Services has released HEDGE:ahead, a resource guide aimed at helping hedge funds in Asia navigate the complexities of launch. Developed by JP Morgan’s Hedge Fund Services team in conjunction with leading industry experts from across the region, HEDGE:ahead features articles that examine areas of critical importance for new funds, such as jurisdiction and regulatory issues; fee structures; service provider selection; and technology systems and processes.

In addition to JP Morgan, contributors to HEDGE:ahead include the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA), Axxsys Consulting, EurekaHedge, Ogier and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

Adam Wallace, head of hedge fund services, Asia-Pacific, JP Morgan Worldwide Securities Services, said: “When a hedge fund is preparing to launch, its managers invariably focus their efforts on developing the right investment theme and the most appropriate trading strategy – and raising capital, of course. However, even with a successful trading strategy, a robust operational structure is crucial. If funds want to attract investors, they’ll need to partner with leading service providers, incorporate strong EMS/OMS systems, establish effective segregation of duties and integrate comprehensive operating procedures. Funds must design themselves from the outset to successfully complete institutional-grade due diligence reviews.”
