Natixis Global Associates, in conjunction with Absolute Asia Asset Management, has launched the Absolute Asia Dynamic Equity Fund, a multi-cap fund that will invest in Asian companies, ex-Japan. It is the first fund offered in the United States by the Singapore-based Absolute Asia management team, which has been headquartered in the region for more than a decade.

“The economic vitality of the Asia Pacific region is quickly converting one of the world’s most diverse geographic locations into an international marketplace of large-scale commerce, investment and development that is capturing the interest of many investors,” said Bill Sung, chief investment officer of Absolute Asia Asset Management and co-portfolio manager of the fund.

“Our strategic location directly in the heart of the Asia Pacific region gives us the distinct advantage of being close to the companies and business centers which are our focus,” Sung added.
