Charlie Chan, who left Credit Suisse to start Splendid Asia Macro hedge fund in 2011, has reportedly performed splendidly in his first full year. In an interview with Reuters, Charlie Chan reported that his $80 million hedge fund has gained 60 percent this year, largely on long positions in the REIT and government bond markets.

Charlie Chan, who spent 25 years managing multi-billion portfolios at Credit Suisse, is finding success where most other Asia-focused hedge funds aren’t. The Eurekahedge Asia index has gained just 4 percent this year. Charlie’s former Credit Suisse colleagues, Lam Hoi Leong and Albert Neo are part of his Splendid Asia hedge fund management team.
