Brummer & Partners Asia Hedge Fund Launch

Swedish hedge fund manager, Brummer & Partners, is expanding its offering of hedge funds by launching Karakoram, a new long-short Asia fund today.

The Fund will take both long and short positions in liquid equities on Asian markets such as Hong Kong, China, India, South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore. The Fund will base its positions on fundamental equity research, complemented with transaction-focused macroeconomic-analysis.

The new Fund’s aim is to consistently deliver a positive return for its unitholders, regardless of stock market performance in general, with a better risk-adjusted return than that of traditional equity portfolios.

Domiciled in Singapore, Ee Toh Chia is the Managing Director and a Partner of the Fund management company and is responsible for the management team. Ee Toh has 15 years of experience from Asian capital markets and has been involved in the management of the Zenit Fund’s Asian holdings since January 2008.

Karakoram has approximately SEK 300 million ($39 milllion) in assets under management. As Karakoram is a Bermuda-based fund a minimum investment of one million kronor ($131,000) is required. Brummer Multi-Strategy will initially invest a small proportion of its fund capital in the Karakoram Fund.
