Hedge Fund Securities Targets Japanese Investors With Epic Funds

Hedge Fund Securities, run by a former Nikko Securities Co. banker, aims to raise 6 billion yen ($78 million) by March 2013 from Japanese individual investors by offering hedge funds run by Epic Partners Investments Co.

The company raised 673 million yen in the first month since starting a fund of hedge funds in November that invests in three Japanese equity strategies run by Tokyo-based Epic, said President Sadaya Mano. It will have capacity of about 10 billion yen, which the firm aims to raise in about two years, he said.
