In July 2016, Copia terminated its partnership with boutique Hong Kong-based Asian equities manager, Imperia Investment Group. Copia will no longer support Imperia in the Australian market and will subsequently wind up the Imperia Asia Fund for which Copia is the responsible entity.
“We would like to thank Simon Leversha, founder and Chief Investment Officer of Imperia, for his Asian equities investment management expertise and wish him all the best for the future,” said Sam Baillieu, Copia’s Chief Executive Officer.
At 31 May 2016, the Imperia Asia Fund had returned 5.06%, 6.91% p.a. and 6.85% p.a. over one, three and five years, respectively.
