Tribridge To Launch New pan-Asia Hedge Fund

Tribridge Investment Partners Ltd., a Hong Kong-based hedge fund manager, said Monday it will launch a new fund in August and hired John Liptak, former head of Bank of America Corp’s Asia special situations group, to run it.

The new fund will have a pan-Asia focus and seek to identify mispriced or undervalued securities due to financial stress, some corporate event or other special situation. It will be biased toward large-cap companies in more developed markets in the region such as Hong Kong, Australia, Korea, Singapore, or Japan.

“I believe that the opportunities from the upcoming default cycle have not been seen since shortly after the Asian currency crisis back in 1997-1998,” Liptak said in prepared remarks.
Citigroup. is the fund’s prime broker and Bank of New York Mellon Corp. is the administrator. Tribridge, founded in 2003, has US$259 million in assets under management in four different funds including a Korea multi-asset fund and three credit funds.
