UK boutique signs deal to boost Asia profile

By on

Neptune Investment Management has announced plans to expand its operations in Asia by entering a partnership with third party marketers Peak Capital.

The UK boutique is aiming to bolster its presence in Asia among professional and institutional investors in Hong Kong and Singapore through the agreement.

Douglas McDowell, head of investment strategies at Neptune, said the move had been prompted by the rise of private banking in Asia and the consolidation of wealth management in a number of key centres.

‘We are focusing on Singapore and Hong Kong because of demand from those regions for non-benchmark, high-conviction equity fund management. Peak Capital will be marketing specific funds from Neptune’s US, Russian and Global range.’

This will likely include funds like the Neptune US Opportunities fund, Neptune Russia & Greater Russia fund and Neptune Global Equity fund.

Peak Capital specialises in introducing and supporting professional investors in Asia with leading boutique fund managers. To date, Peak Capital has raised approximately $1.5 billion from professional investors in the region.
