Senrigan Capital Group Passes $1 Billion Mark

April 3, 2011 James Heinsman Hedge Fund News

Hong-Kong’s Senrigan Capital Group has just passed the $1 billion dollar mark, making it one of the more successful firms in Asia.

Senrigan was founded a little over a year ago by Nick Taylor, former Citadel Investment Group Asia investment chief. The firm debuted with around $220 million, $150 of which came from the Blackstone Group’s fund of hedge funds unit. Since its launch, the company has returned over 9%.

Taylor’s career at Citadel lasted for six months. He left when the Chicago-based hedge fund cut back on its Asia branch. Taylor also has experience with Modal Capital Partners of Credit Suisse.

Last year, there were 29 billion-plus dollar funds in Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Melbourne and Sydney numbered. The number is currently over 31, including Goldman Sachs’ former propriety trader Morgan Sze’s Azentus Capital.
