Infini Capital Becomes First Asian Hedge Fund Manager in the ADGM

Infini Capital Management Limited, a Hong Kong-based multi-strategy alternative investment firm, has been granted an In-Principle Approval (IPA) from the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA).

The firm has opened its Abu Dhabi office at the Al Khatem Tower in the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), the international financial centre of the UAE’s capital and subject to final regulatory approval from the FSRA, Infini Capital will become the first Asian Hedge Fund Manager to establish itself in the ADGM, as it looks to tap into deepening ties between Asia and the Middle East.

With an established presence in Hong Kong, Infini Capital’s new Middle East operation will include representation from its portfolio management, trading, risk, operations, compliance, and investor relations teams. In addition to the executives relocating to Abu Dhabi, the Firm will look to benefit from the highly skilled and diverse talent pool available in the region.

Huge Potential

Tony Chin, founder, CEO and CIO of Infini Capital said that this is an important milestone for Infini Capital as the Infinci Capital opened its first office within the EMEA region in Abu Dhabi, marking a meaningful step in the long-term strategic plan for the firm.

“We believe in the tremendous potential of the region as an alternative investment hub and have received strong support and partnership from the ADGM in getting to this point,” Chin added.

ADGM is one of the world’s leading international financial centres, located in the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The IFC is an ideal centre for asset management due to its exceptional infrastructure, robust regulatory framework, supportive local government, sound regulation, and the direct application of English Common Law.

Connecting Asia with Middle East

Arvind Ramamurthy, Chief of Market Development at ADGM, while welcoming Infini Capital as the first Asian Hedge Fund Manager to establish its presence in ADGM, said that this was a significant milestone representing the strong commercial connections between Asia and the Middle East.

“Their decision reflects the growing momentum of asset management firms to choose the capital city of the UAE as a hub for their international business operations. As these global players continue to recognize the opportunities presented by Abu Dhabi, the ADGM will continue to solidify its position as a thriving hub for the alternative asset management sector,” Ramamurthy added.

By establishing operations in Abu Dhabi, Infini Capital aims to contribute to the commercial growth of the Firm by accessing regional institutions and leading talent from across the EMEA region, as it continues to expand its capabilities and expertise.

The Firm recently launched its flagship product, the Infini Global Master Fund, in 2023, which seeks to build on its previous track record of success, driven by a multi-manager approach with a focus on niche investment strategies.
