In-depth research and business intelligence

The research arm of consulting firm HFC Advisory Group is currently active in four main areas:


Research on behalf of institutional investors

While we do not provide investment advice, as a research and consulting firm we provide independent and tailor-made fund manager sourcing, research and ongoing due diligence and monitoring on behalf of professional investors. We are mainly focused on conducting research on asset managers that are based in Asia. We are well positioned to be international investors’ Asian partners, being their eyes and ears in Asia. We also assist Japanese and other Asian investors with research of strategies and asset managers outside their home markets. Our on the ground presence, connections and expertise help save our clients valuable time and resources. Our interests are fully aligned with those of our research clients. We are not remunerated in any form by the asset managers we research on behalf of investors.
