Hedge Fund Standards Board Presents the Japanese Translation of the Standards

The Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB) presented the Japanese translation of the Hedge Fund Standards at its first Institutional Investor Roundtable in Tokyo, attended by managers, institutional investors and other market participants.

Chris Wells, Partner of Morgan Lewis and the co-host of the HFSB event in Tokyo, said:
“We are delighted that the HFSB is engaging with the Japanese alternative investment community and raising awareness about the role of the Standards in improving practices in this industry.”

Dame Amelia Fawcett, Chair of the HFSB, said:

"The Standards have been used widely in Europe, North America and Asia, and we believe they will make a similar contribution to the Japanese market. We look forward to involving the Japanese regulators, officials and market participants in the ongoing HFSB global dialogue on a wide variety of market issues.”
