The firm’s asset management unit is liquidating its Sumi Trust Japan L-S I Alpha after client redemptions cut assets to just over $10 million. The fund was launched in 2007 and had assets peaking at about $100 million in 2012.  Money managers and hedge funds in Japan have been hit hard as they struggle to anticipate how the central bank’s policy of negative interest rats and asset purchases would impact markets.
