LatAm: Starting A Hedge Fund

by Dave

Latin Business Chronicle

Latin America has emerged as a region with enormous potential for growth. Currently holding a 3 percent share of the global hedge fund market and growing, the region is home to 330 funds with more than USD60bn in assets under management (EurekaHedge, February 2008). The vast majority of these funds are located in Brazil, where 80 percent of fund managers in the region can be found, followed by Argentina (7 percent) and Chile (1 percent). Managers located in the U.S. and Europe with funds trading in the region account for the remaining 12 percent.
