Janchor Partners Ltd has launched its flagship long/short equity hedge fund with more than $100 million in assets under management. The firm was founded last year by John Ho who previously headed up the Asian investment team of Chris Hohn’s Children's Investment Fund Management (TCI).

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Ho’s Hong Kong-based Janchor Partners Asia hedge fund has a 3-year lockup on 90% of its capital, which will enable Janchor Partners to make longer-term investments, bucking a broader trend that shows investors increasingly demanding early withdrawal options.

Janchor Partners charges fees of 1.6% of assets and 16% of profits rather than the standard “2/20” rule used by most hedge funds. The firm will also selectively short equities that have poor business prospects.
