East Capital gets hk asset management license

The firm set up its Hong Kong office in 2007 and has been investing in Asia since 2010.

“We have ambitious plans for further growth in the region as we see increasing interest for our Asian products from our global investor base,” said Karine Hirn, partner and co-founder of the firm. 

Hirn leads the Hong Kong-based equity team, which has two investment professionals, Adrian Pop and Dmitriy Vlasov, as well as a team of analysts.

Over the last ten years, the firm has been distributing its range of equity funds in Asia-Pacific, including the East Capital Russian Fund and the East Capital Eastern European Fund.

East Capital’s Asia fund range includes the East Capital (Lux) China Fund and the East Capital (Lux) Emerging Asia Fund. 

Last year the firm launched the East Capital (Lux) Frontier Markets Fund, which invests in countries such as Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Vietnam.

In China, the firm set up research capability in Shanghai in 2010. It received a qualified foreign institutional investors license in 2013. 

In March this year, the firm said it became the first Luxembourg-domiciled fund to be allowed to invest its portfolio in A-shares through the Stock Connect.
