Chris Wang, a former co-manager of Owl Creek Asset Management’s Asia funds, plans to start his own long-short fund focused on North Asia stocks in the second quarter. The fund will make more bullish than bearish bets, with five or six ideas contributing the majority of returns. Wang aims to start with as many as 10 employees and has hired Ed Littmann, a former head of equity manager research at Chicago-based Mesirow Financial Holdings Inc., as chief operating officer.
A slew of hedge funds are setting up shop in Asia, pointing to early signs of a revival after new starts slumped in 2017. Long-time employees of Tybourne Capital Management, Moore Capital Management, Millennium Management and Soros Fund Management are striking out on their own. Global investors have renewed their interest in the region after Asia-focused funds were the top performers last year, and beat global peers in five of the past six years, according to data from Eurekahedge Pte.
While most of the world’s institutional watched from the sidelines as surged last year, a small group of hedge fund managers piled in. Call them visionaries or just plain lucky, but boy did they hit the jackpot. The nine tracked by Eurekahedge Pte soared 1,167 per cent as a group in 2017, according to preliminary figures from the data provider, which doesn’t disclose details such as assets under management or individual returns.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
