Myriad Asset Management launched its maiden hedge fund today with $300 million in assets under management. Myriad, which is based in Hong Kong, was founded earlier this year by Carl Huttenlocher.

Prior to founding Myriad, Mr. Huttenlocher headed up Highbridge Capital Management’s Asian investment operations. While at Highbridge, Huttenlocher oversaw the firm’s $1.4 billion equities and convertible bonds focused Asian hedge fund. Highbridge Capital decided to shutter Huttenlocher’s former fund following his departure.

Myriad Asset Management’s hedge fund will focus on Asian-Pacific opportunities by investing in stocks, convertible bonds, corporate bonds and derivatives. Myriad hopes to raise approximately $2 billion for the fund during the first half of 2011.
