FRM Capital Advisors (FCA), a branch of Financial Risk Management (FRM), announced its first investment in an Asian hedge fund. FRM Capital is making a significant investment in Isometric Capital Management’s first fund. The fund will be managed by Isometric’s CEO Sanjiv Bhatia who previously led Deephaven Capital Management’s Asia office. The fund, which will mostly invest in Asian equities, expects to launch at the beginning of December with approximately $50 to $75 million in assets.

Mr. Bhatia commented that Isometric Capital’s “holistic approach to fundamental research across the entire capital structure, combined with a long investment history and solid risk management, allows to have low correlation to markets and protect against downside volatility whilst capitalizing on opportunities for investors.”

With regards to the seeding partnership with FCA, Mr. Bhatia commented “as a new hedge fund, this major investment by FCA allows us to focus all our energies on operations excellence and generating high quality returns for our investors.”

According to FRM Capital’s Chief Investment Officer Neil Mason, “Asian economies have shown their strength and there are numerous market inefficiencies that hedge funds can profit from.” This is FRM Capital’s third announced seeding deal in the past four months, following deals with JD Capital and WestSpring Advisors.
