Discussion of the key issues in the hedge fund industry

As always the conference focuses on the issues that matter for the hedge fund industry including:

• Japanese investors in the credit crunch aftermath – how has their allocation towards hedge funds changed?
• How are long shorts adopting to the new economic climate?
• The aftermath of FIEL (Financial Instruments and Exchange Law) and JSOX – how will the hedge fund industry be affected?
• The rise of shareholder activism – what are the implications for the hedge fund industry in Japan?
• Risk management: what does it really mean after Basel 2?
• Event driven funds; what opportunities do they offer Japanese investors?
• Hedge fund replication, 130/30 strategies – academic hype or the next big thing in Japan?
• Foreign investment issues: China’s QDII funds, India and the growing importance of sovereign wealth funds
• Japan as a hedge fund centre; can it survive the onslaught from Hong Kong and Singapore?

Early confirmed keynote address: Andrew Shipley, author of The Japanese Money Tree

Many investors shunned Japan after its economic recession and some still have doubts after recent stock market wobbles. However the country’s economy has made a remarkable comeback, having outperformed the markets of all other developed countries in 2005 - a fact that means that Japan is too important to be ignored. With the help of continued economic restructuring, foreign hedge-fund managers, private equity turn-around specialists, property developers and value investors there are exciting and lucrative opportunities.

Guest speaker Andrew H. Shipley is the author of the Japanese Money Tree having previously worked as an economist at Lehman Brothers Japan, Credit Suisse First Boston Securities (Japan) and Schroders Japan, working in Japan for 15 years.
