Bloomberg – Felix Chee, an adviser to China’s $200 billion sovereign wealth fund, said it aims to make investments in hedge funds.
“We will have a preference for managed accounts,” he said in an interview today at the GAIM International hedge fund conference at Monaco’s Grimaldi Forum. “The platform would like a core of single-manager funds and fund-of-funds.”
Chee, who said he will initially run China Investment Corp.’s hedge fund and proprietary trading effort, is a special adviser to the chief investment officer of CIC.
“It’ll be across the spectrum of strategies,” he said. “We’re looking for the best managers and a handful of fund of funds, and when I say handful I mean five or less.”
