|OPIM to launch Long-Term Leader Fund I with L Squared Management||
OP Investment Management (“OPIM”), Asia’s leading hedge fund platform is partnering with L Squared Management, to launch Long-Term Leader Fund I SP. The Fund is Cayman-domiciled for professional investors only.
Mr. Liyang Lu, the fund manager and founder of L Squared Management, will deploy a long-short strategy focusing on companies with China exposure. His investment approach will target companies with a sustainable and increasing economic moat.
“We believe in 'Global vision, China perspective'. As China becomes more integrated into the world economy, the ability to analyze companies from both global and local angles gives us an edge in identifying long-term winners” Mr. Lu explained.
Mr. Lu was previously assistant vice president at Sanford C. Bernstein’s Hong Kong Office where he was responsible for research Asian insurance and Chinese consumer finance companies. Before, he worked for several hedge funds in the United States and Hong Kong as a research analyst and involved with numerous Chinese and international IPO’s in the investment banking department of Morgan Stanley Huaxin Securities. He began his career as a consultant with Capgemini consulting in Beijing. Mr. Lu holds a Bachelor of Arts in Finance and Banking from Peking University, and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
“Having successfully shifted its economy from a manufacturing, export driven market into an incubator for emerging innovators, we are now seeing a new generation of companies built on sustainable quality and strategic advantage. We are thrilled to be working with Liyang to launch his strategy which reflects this fascinating change in landscape.” Alvin Fan, Chief Executive Officer of OP Investment Management added.
