On the back of its success in Hong Kong, Inflection Point Intelligence, in collaboration with Henley Business School, ia launching a Hedge Fund Programme in Singapore in October 2016. What is it about?

Developed and managed by Inflection Point Intelligence, the Hedge Fund Programme is designed specifically for professionals within the financial services industry, providing a holistic, hands-on real-practice understanding of hedge funds. 

Applicants with a keen interest in the hedge fund industry, a good bachelor degree and three years’ relevant experience in financial services are encouraged to participate.

The programme will offer a blend of modules and workshops to address pitch book formative, investor relations, compliance and fund-pitching, just to name a few.

Educating The Wider Community

Swiss-Asia Financial Services (Swiss-Asia) who are keen to grow the talent pool and educate the wider community, is sponsoring the programme and the first intake of 25 qualified services professionals will commence 15 October 2016.

With workshops conducted by well-respected industry figures, participants can look forward to practical, hands-on advice over a six month period. In the long run, this is set to grow Asia’s hedge fund community as more fund managers set up shop in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo.

Hedge Fund Simulation

«We found that many in the hedge fund community only knew their own area of expertise. Often, a lawyer might not appreciate fund administration and in turn, these administrators might not know about capital introduction,» said Anna Stephenson, Programme Advisor and Partner of Inflection Point Intelligence.

Participants will also be assessed by a final group project, simulating the setting up of a hedge fund. This will be presented to a panel of industry experts in Asia, before they are successfully awarded with a professional certificate of completion.
