|OPIM to Launch Hedge and PE Strategies via Ansen SPC with Ansen Investment Management||
OP Investment Management (「東英資管」) is partnering with Ansen Investment Management Limited to launch Ansen Fund SPC. The Fund is Cayman-domiciled for professional investors only.
The first strategy, Ansen Global Investment Fund SP uses a discretionary, long-short approach towards multi- asset investments. While the Fund plans to invest within multiple exchanges, the mandate will maintain a focus primarily on Asia markets. To achieve long-term capital growth and returns, a flexible asset allocation method will be driven by value investing principles and a top-down approach. IPO opportunities will be a primary focus for investment, specifically within Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, EU and US markets.
Mr. Bill Chun, senior portfolio manager of the hedge strategy, explains, “A flexible approach towards different sectors and multiple investment classes will help us manage risks associated with market volatility and geopolitical tensions in the future. In addition, our Fund will give investors the opportunity to participate in early stage companies valued on solid fundamentals.”
Mr. Bill Chun is the portfolio manager of the Investment Manager. Before managing Ansen Fund SP, he was the Head of Principal Trading Strategy Formulation at Poseidon IAM Co., Ltd, responsible for analyzing financial trends and bank securities. Prior to this, he was an Executive in the Finance Division of Royal Trust Universe Asset Management from 2010-2013, and he was Managing Director from 2007-2012 at Importers Salvage Centre MIDAS Trading. Mr. Chun began his career as a Finance Commissioner at JP Morgan. He received his Bachelor of Management Studies from the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand.
“Given the attractive opportunities in both direct investment and in liquid markets in Asia, it’s becoming increasingly important for new managers to think ahead and provide choices for their investors. Launching with both hedge and private equity clearly positions Ansen strategy towards this appetite. We couldn’t be more thrilled to host their new SPC on our platform.” Alvin Fan, Chief Executive Officer of OP Investment Management added.
The second strategy, Ansen Global Aggregate Fund SP will focus on direct investments through debt financing in private companies in a broad range of sectors such as art, entertainment and recreation, finance, real estate, healthcare, artificial intelligence and energy.
