Hedge Fund Opportunities in China

An alternative approach for international allocators

Although China is of great interest to international allocators, the challenge has always been how best to take advantage of what is, to many, an attractive, long-term opportunity with limited correlation to global markets. Allocators are faced with a number of issues, such as limited access to local exchanges, a lack of hedging tools, currency restrictions, the risk of government interference, regulatory and transparency concerns, a preponderance of retail investors in the domestic markets (80% according to some estimates), and, not least, cultural and language barriers. A pure long-only approach has been rewarded with generally poor risk-adjusted long-term returns. The rally of around 150% in the Shanghai Composite Index in the 12 months up to 12 June 2015, after four consecutive years of decline on the heels of the 2009 recovery, followed by the subsequent loss of -32% so far in the current correction (as of 31 July 2015), have only served to highlight the Chinese market’s volatility and increase the common perception that it is extremely difficult to navigate. Exploring alternative ways to allocate to China seems therefore warranted, and a diversified portfolio of hedge funds may be the better approach as historically this has generated better risk-adjusted returns.
