Occam Asset Management is preparing an Asia UCITS III-compliant hedge fund.
The new Asian Absolute Return fund will debut early next month, the Financial Times reports. The vehicle will be managed by Mark Williams and Fabiana Fedelli, who currently run its long-only Asia Focus fund.
Asia Absolute Return will be domiciled in Dublin and will be part of the firm’s Occam Umbrella range. It will be sold in euro, pound Sterling and U.S. dollar share classes.
Occam Asset Management was founded in July 2007 by Jonathan Hughes-Morgan formerly managing director and co-founder of Thames River Capital, and David Sheppard, formerly of SG Investment Banking.
Occam currently manages two long/short equity funds investing in Europe and Asia. In September 2008, the firm broadened its offering with the launch of its UCITS III fund platform. In April 2009, Occam added a Global Emerging Markets Fund to its UCITS III range of funds.
