IFM Investors opens Hong Kong office

Investor-owned fund manager IFM Investors has opened an office in Hong Kong and secured a licence from the region’s Securities and Futures Commission.


The firm has also launched three new strategies, including an Asia-Pacific market neutral capability, and IFM Investors chief executive Brett Himbury said the new office would support the company’s global reach.

“Our investors are increasingly seeking opportunities in Asia and an office in Hong Kong will allow us to continue to globalise our investment capabilities,” he said.

“We will work closely with regulators and professional investors in Hong Kong to meet regulatory requirements and investor need.

Mr Himbury said the new office will allow the company to “increasingly meet the global appetite of institutional investors”.

In addition to the new Hong Kong office, IFM Investors now have offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Berlin, New York, London and Tokyo, with 40 per cent of the company’s investment staff based outside of Australia.
