[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.”
