Abstract: This paper studies portfolio selection and performance analysis of hedge funds whose locations or investment targets are Asian-Pacific region. Utilizing Eurekahedge database, we investigate the characteristics of the funds' returns and optimization methods to create a fund of funds. Moreover, we decompose the returns of the hedge funds into risk factors which are observable in financial markets such as stock indices. Then, we attempt to manage a fund of funds by applicating those analyses.
