Asian Macro Hedge Fund Launch

A new Asia macro hedge fund has been launched by Dexion Capital and Morgan Stanley veterans Andrew Gale and Lee Ka Sha.

With a minimum investment is $100,000, the fund will invest in Asian interest rates and currencies, opening trading on May 1, according to HedgeWeek.

Lee will play the role of CEO, with Gale as chief executive. Gale most recently was responsible for product development and fundraising for Dexion Capital's London-listed closed-ended funds of hedge funds and third-party funds. Lee was a founding member of Abax Global Capital in Hong Kong, where he managed both the South Asia special situations portfolio and macro positioning.

“In the course of these discussions it has become apparent that most investors look to their macro investments to be a diversifier providing a different source of returns than the inherent beta in credit and equity strategies,” Gale said, "the fund launch was based on investor demand."
