- Experienced investment directors Mark Tinker and Jonathan Sleath team up to head new office
- Asian investors to gain access to Toscafund’s range of high-performing funds and co investment opportunities
[London and Hong Kong, 1 April 2022] Toscafund, the London-headquartered specialist asset manager founded by Martin Hughes in 2000 and chaired by Martin Gilbert, has announced the opening of a Hong Kong office, its second in Asia-Pacific, following regulatory approval from the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission.
Toscafund’s fifth and newest office extends the firm’s global network for both fund distribution and investment across its specialist areas – listed equities, private equity, private debt and UK commercial property. Mark Tinker, former senior fund manager with AXA IM and founder of financial research firm Market Thinking, and Jonathan Sleath, former Investment Director at Investec in London and Hong Kong, will oversee Toscafund’s award-winning range of funds and proprietary investment opportunities to investors in the region.
Longer-term, the firm plans to develop the investment platform, identify quality opportunities and recruit the best local financial talent in the Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.
Martin Hughes comments: “Toscafund has a 20-year track record of delivering strong returns for family offices. I’m really pleased we are opening in Hong Kong as we see great potential for investors, especially family offices and high net worth individuals joining the existing network. Having known Mark and Jonathan for many years, I have no doubt their entrepreneurialism and expertise will help us establish a good presence in this market.”
Mark Tinker and Jonathan Sleath added: “Working with Martin and the Toscafund team, we have a tremendous opportunity to continue building Toscafund in one of the world’s leading financial centres. Toscafund has an exceptional track record and we are looking forward to presenting its specialist approach to investors in Hong Kong and across the region.”
