Gordian Capital, an alternative fund platform provider, has established a representative office in Shanghai to support its mainland Chinese clients.
Established in the Cayman Islands in 2004, the firm has subsidiaries in Singapore, Tokyo and Melbourne.
“While the recently announced liberalisation measures are intended to grow the domestic Chinese market and attract foreign participants, our focus initially at least, continues to be to assist those Chinese financial market participants seeking to diversify both their investor and asset bases outside of China,” said Stanley Howard, chairman of Gordian Capital Singapore.
The firm says its Chinese clients currently include an asset manager with $16 billion under management, a wealth manager with $15 billion and a private corporation with $12 billion.
Gordian Capital helps to structure, launch and operate offshore fund vehicles and caters to conventional long-only funds as well as alternative asset classes.
