Hong Kong (PRWEB) May 1, 2008
Opalesque, the world's largest subscription-based publisher covering the alternative investment industry, has launched the fourth issue in a series of regional roundtable forums, the “Opalesque Hong Kong Roundtable”.
In each Opalesque Roundtable, Matthias Knab, Opalesque Founder and Director, unites leading hedge fund managers with representatives of the local investor base for an insightful and candid discussion on the hedge fund industry within that region. This informal and lightly moderated forum allows for single- and multi-strategy hedge fund managers to connect with investment advisors, fund of fund managers, and institutional allocators to gain unique insights into the specific developments and idiosyncrasies of each region. Through the publication of the Roundtable Series, Opalesque has created the opportunity for these leading hedge fund managers and investors to share with a broader audience the various issues and advantages found within each hedge fund center.
The Opalesque Hong Kong Roundtable was sponsored by Newedge Prime Brokerage (http://www.newedgegroup.com) and took place in their Hong Kong office. We also thank Singapore based GFIA for helping us put the group together.
The participants of the Opalesque Hong Kong Roundtable are:
- Jacob Tsang, Treasurer, Hong Kong Jockey Club
- Christophe Lee, CEO, Sun Hung Kai Fund Management
- John Knox, Co-Founder, KGR Capital
- Paul Smith, Partner, Triple A Partners
- Michael Nock, Founder, Doric Capital
- Peter Douglas, Founder, GFIA
- Andrew Ballingal, CEO, Ballingal Investment Advisors
- Kirby Daley, Head of Sales and Capital Introductions – Asia, Newedge Group
- Eugene Kim, CIO, Tribridge Capital
One of the "big stories" for the next 20 years is the continued growth of China and India. At the moment, Hong Kong is still the gateway for money and people both going into and coming out of China.
- Will Hong Kong's supremacy hold in the light of fast-raising Shanghai?
- The Hong Kong Jockey Club is a pioneer of hedge fund investing amongst Asian institutions. How satisfied is the Club, what is the future of its hedge fund program? Which trends do investors observe?
- How is the local hedge fund industry developing? What are the regulatory trends?
- What is behind that "Hong Kong-Singapore thing" - how do the experts see the rivalry of these two Asian power centers?
- Market participants observe a "huge influx of hedge fund investors from Europe and North America" into Hong Kong. What are the opportunities for hedge fund managers in 2008 and beyond?
- Learn from some of the most seasoned investors what Asian hedge funds can deliver, but maybe most importantly what NOT to expect from a typical Asian hedge fund.

Opalesque leads the finance media space for its in-depth and innovative products. Since February 2003, Opalesque is publishing Alternative Market Briefing, the premium news service on hedge funds and alternatives. The launch of these Briefings was a revolution in the hedge fund media space ("Opalesque changed the world by bringing transparency where there was opacity and by delivering an accurate professional reporting service." - Nigel Blanchard, Culross) combining proprietary news with the “clipping service” approach of integrating third party news. Each week, Opalesque publications are read by more than 360,000 industry professionals in over 100 countries.
Opalesque is the only daily hedge fund publisher which is actually read by the elite managers themselves (http://www.opalesque.com/op_testimonials.html).
