Hong Kong based Managing Director, Hemal Mirani, will moderate the Regional Funds Panel Discussion at the 2018 Forum.  Hemal will lead the dialogue alongside other industry leaders, answering topical questions such as, Are investors specifically looking for regional / geography-specific funds to commit to? Does focusing on a particular country or sub-region of Asia present more opportunities or challenges to GPs? What are the effects of the increase in outbound investment from Asia on investment strategies? As Japan seems now to be an attractive market for regional funds, what are their competitive advantages versus local managers? and Will the flow of capital out of hedge funds and into private equity have a negative impact on returns?
