Bringing managers and investors together to set standards for the alternative investment industry

There are many legitimate differences between Chinese onshore managers and global offshore managers that allocators must understand.

Our China Working Group looks to help bridge this gap between global allocators and Chinese managers. If you are interested in joining the working group please contact us at
