East Asia’s LPs Go Long


May 7, 2015

An article on Asian asset managers’ strategies, such as  Taiwan’s Public Service Pension Fund Management (PSPFM) and Korean Sovereign Wealth fund (KIC), reveals some insights into how these giants aim for steady returns and outperformance. KIC is owned by the government and yet it has been successful in growing capital in part because it has managed to “match the culture” of hedge funds and private equity firms, not a central bank corporate culture. The Asian fund managers are moving more into alt assets, including private equity and real estate, with an eye to concentrated, long-term investment opportunities. They also have some innovative strategies and are quite transparent on them if this article is anything to go by.
