Trium Capital hires Asian equity specialist for new L/S fund

London-based alternative investment specialist Trium Capital has appointed Angus Chiang to manage a new Asia ex-Japan long/short equity portfolio.

With over 15 years’ experience covering Asian equities, Chiang previously co-managed the Pelargos Asia Alpha Fund, a fundamental long/short equity hedge fund. Prior to this, Chiang held various positions at Inox Global Capital management, Morgan Stanley and ACPI Investment Managers.

Chiang’s appointment is one of several recent high-profile hires, as the firm prepares to unveil a broad investment proposition later this year.

Trium’s new Asia ex-Japan equity long/short strategy aims to capitalise on stock mis-pricings created by investor misconceptions and misplaced expectations.

Shenan Dhanani, co-head of Trium Capital, says: “Chiang has consistently demonstrated his ability to deliver for investors, generating absolute returns each year while at Pelargos. He applies a fundamental, catalyst-driven approach and draws on his extensive experience to guide investors through fluctuating Asian market cycles. With the Asian region undergoing a period of elevated volatility, this is an ideal time for Angus to join the team and unearth sources of true alpha for our growing investor base.”

Chiang added: “Innovation is transforming and redefining Asia, with many of its economies rapidly developing sustainable domestic industries and strong intellectual properties. These developments create opportunities for investors, and through a concentrated long/short approach, I aim to capture the shift in investor perceptions and the correction of perceived mis-pricings. I look forward to working at Trium Capital, a company actively striving to harness the potential of emerging managers.”
