CREDITEASE WEALTH MANAGEMENT
In addition to partnering with globally renowned private equity managers, CreditEase Wealth Management has also developed in-house funds such as a fintech investment solution and an Israeli innovation strategy — the first of its kind from a Chinese financial institution — to capture growth trends in technology locally and abroad. Established managers aside, the wealth manager also sources from ‘black horse funds’ — up-and-coming managers with high potential and a primary focus on TMT (technology, media, and telecommunications) or related sectors.
For its real estate allocation, CreditEase Wealth Management focuses on value, predominantly through top global and emerging partners. Its shelf boasts a variety of fund of funds solutions including opportunistic FoF, income FoF, and debt FoF, alongside selective co-investment opportunities across residential, office, retail, and hotel properties in the US, Europe, and Asia Pacific. And for clients’ hedge fund exposure, the wealth manager blends hedge fund allocations into its public equity FoF solutions across macro, quantitative hedging, event-driven, and CTA strategies.
China’s emergence as an alternatives investor is well documented, but to sustainably capitalise on an opportunity of such magnitude is no easy feat. In addition to robust asset growth, CreditEase Wealth Management has achieved strong performance across various alternative sub-asset classes, boasting a long-term IRR of illiquid investments and resilience against short-term market volatility in public markets.
CreditEase Wealth Management is Asian Private Banker’s Best Wealth Manager – Alternative Advisory for 2018.
