Hong Kong-based Investec Asset Management, with USD500 million in assets under management, is in talks with Hong Kong's Securities and Futures Commission about creating mutual funds that will use over-the-counter equity derivatives. Stewart Aldcroft, managing director in Hong Kong, said it aims to roll out the funds later this year to meet strong interest from investors. Investec Asset Management, which primarily invests in Hong Kong and Chinese equities, will look to use options to leverage exposure, he noted.

Aldcroft declined to elaborate on specific strategies it might employ. Investec Asset Management is a subsidiary of South Africa's Investec.
