In the financial community of Hong Kong, you can hear more and more about such voice: Today in the asset management industry in Hong Kong, there have already been half of the players, who are from mainland China. The markets in Hong Kong and mainland will join together sooner or later, and the complementary effects between will grow stronger and stronger as well.
In 2015, Will Li announced to join OP Investment Management Ltd (“OPIM”). Here he will lead a new team to create an innovative platform business for hedge funds, which is said to be Alibaba in the industry by his preference. He said, we are certainly going to take the role of Alibaba within the asset management industry, and this fund platform will act as Tmall or Taobao with the fund managers as the store owners in the above.
According to Will, OPIM hopes to build up an ecological circle of the Internet finance for Asian hedge funds as Alibaba does in e-commerce. The first step starts from the offline professional supporting platform for oversea funds. OPIM will support mainland private fund managers to launch products in Hong Kong and other oversea markets through such platform. This is entirely a new business in the market, and also a new challenge to Will.
