China: Funds on the edge (FT)

He invests exclusively in Chinese companies selected by a disciplined team of researchers who are among the best paid in the country. In a decade of stockpicking with almost no ability to hedge any of its bets in China’s rudimentary markets, Prime has still managed to deliver average annual returns of almost 26 per cent, with just one losing year, according to documents from the fund.

Chatham owns 28 percent of Revel…. During a brief hearing before the commission, Evan Ratner, a principal of Chatham, did not discuss the company’s future plans.
