Welcome to
Wolver Hill
Asset Management Asia Limited
Wolver Hill Asset Management Asia Limited (“WHAMAL”) is part of the Wolver Hill group – an Asia-focused alternative investment asset management and advisory group established by Edward J. Rogers in 2006. In cooperation with its Tokyo-based affiliate Rogers Investment Advisors, WHAMAL provides best-in-class hedge fund platform, consulting and advisory services for alternative investment managers.
Platform Services
Establishment
Wolver Hill delivers innovative and cost-efficient solutions for emerging Asian fund managers by providing comprehensive support for setting up new hedge funds businesses including access to top tier key service providers (Lawyers, Prime Brokers, Administrators, Auditors, Directors, Trustees, etc.), coordinating between all relevant parties, managing the fund documentation process, and registering relevant vehicles. As a result of our team’s expertise and track record, Wolver Hill can launch funds in a time and cost efficient manner.
Operations
Managers have access to regulatory coverage either in Hong Kong through WHAMAL (regulated by the Securities & Futures Commission, Hong Kong) and / or Tokyo through Rogers Investment Advisors K.K. (registered with the Kanto Finance Bureau). Our team provides on-going operational support for hedge funds that are supported and facilitated by a highly experienced multilingual team, institutional-grade technology for day-to-day middle- and back-office operations, and highly experienced C-suite executives.

Infrastructure
The firm’s top tier support infrastructure including control, compliance and technology allows managers to focus on strategy & execution. In addition, we can provide furnished and equipped offices in central locations for immediate use by fund managers in Hong Kong or Tokyo. WHAMAL has invested in institutional-standard IT infrastructure, central to which is our Portfolio Management System, Linedata Global Hedge. All users in our office are supported by Premier Technology, a well-known IT consultant in the hedge fund industry in Hong Kong.
Why Wolver Hill
Efficient Execution
By creating an “Economy of Scale,” we are able to significantly reduce time and cost for new fund launches in Asia. Our skilled operational team and efficient processes give our firm a competitive edge in an industry where such solutions are crucial to manager success. The Wolver Hill team strives to achieve “Operational Alpha” for all our partners.

Manager Focused
With offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo, the firm offers a bespoke service where managers can choose to be based in either location. In addition, we operate an open architecture service provider ecosystem so managers are free to work with their preferred service providers. Furthermore, managers’ proprietary research and track records remain their intellectual property.
Expanded Opportunities
Our secure, vetted and risk-managed environment allows investors ranging from the largest US and European institutions to Family Offices / HNW individuals to access superior Asian-based alternative investment products. We seek to offer unique opportunities by taking advantage of the multi-trillion alternative investment flow moving into and out of Asia.
Qualified Team
Our team of seasoned industry professionals can address operational and business issues that can greatly impact hedge fund returns. The team uniquely combines decades of buy-side, sell-side, and service provider experience in Hedge Funds, Prime Brokerage and Asset Management. The Wolver Hill team provides high quality problem solving solutions.
Local Expertise
The team capitalizes on local knowledge and networks to develop a critical understanding of the key drivers of the industry and source essential relationships with major Prime Brokers, Administrators, Legal Firms and Software Providers. Additionally, our team consists of Japanese, Mandarin, and Cantonese speakers to best meet the needs of our clients.
Due Diligence
The Wolver Hill group consists of Wolver Hill Asset Management Asia Limited and Rogers Investment Advisors K.K., based in Hong Kong and Tokyo, respectively. The group’s two-fold approach to hedge fund solutions allows the firm to offer a bespoke service to its clients. Our due diligence research capabilities are able to offer investors the solutions to four common roadblocks: “Too Far, Too Foreign, Too Small, Too Expensive”.
Too Far
Asia is not a 14-hour flight away for us like it is for many U.S and European investors. From our offices in Tokyo and Hong Kong, we are able to offer real-time monitoring and interaction with our Asian managers and investments to ensure the highest quality of our service offerings.
Too Foreign
Multilingual and multicultural, we offer a linguistic and cultural arbitrage opportunity. Many competitors cannot conduct investment, operations or business due diligence in Japanese, Mandarin and Cantonese – giving us a significant, ongoing informational advantage.
Too Small
Asia represents 25% of the world's GDP and has been growing faster than any region in the world over the past 50 years. Even so, many investors have been unable to directly participate in this incredible growth story. Our strategic location opens the doors to Asian opportunities.
Too Expensive
Our two Asian offices are able to create significant cost advantages. Located in Hong Kong and Tokyo, the Wolver Hill group can conduct more cost-efficient onsite due diligence visits than our competitors, translating to superior research information and returns.
