October 4, 2006

The hedge fund industry in Asia is still in its infancy, said Philip Millward, partner at the Hong Kong office of law firm Walkers.

“We’ll see increased competition amongst the managers for target investments.”

Here, Millward talks about how some hedge funds are beginning to adopt private-equity strategies.
