Global hedge funds settle in Singapore, invest in Japan

About 330 executives and employees of Singapore-based hedge funds gathered for Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards 2015 in Singapore in late May.

SINGAPORE -- Singapore is only a bit larger in area than central Tokyo, yet its hedge fund environment is noticeably more vibrant.

   One reason for this is the Financial Sector Incentive Scheme for Fund Managers, a set of tax incentives unique to Singapore. Hedge funds based in the city-state have plenty of cash at their disposal, a significant portion of which is flowing into Japanese assets.
