According to Eurekahedge, assets under management by Asian hedge funds (ex. Japan) totaled USD$105 billion or 7% of global funds under management in 2009. This figure is expected to rise to US$182 billion by 2012. With this rapid growth, regional regulators and policy-makers are examining rules and regulations. What regulatory landscape will emerge – and how will it effect Asia Pacific operations? How can asset managers respond to new regulations and better manage risk?
