Aradhna Dayal is a 22-year veteran of the Asian financial markets. She runs her single-family office out of Hong Kong and recently started Access Alts Asia, an Asia-dedicated investment club to allocate to high-alpha, unique Asian alternatives.
Aradhna’s career has seen several firsts. She ran one of the earliest family offices investing in Asian Alternative funds and helped build the first platform that brought together the then nascent Asian Alternative funds industry two decades back and tracked over 700 funds. Aradhna also conceptualized the first international-style “Sunshine Funds” database for China, as well as pioneered the first China-Global hedge fund Summit at the invitation of the Shanghai Mayor in 2013, facilitating the China government’s landmark QDLP Investments Program for global alternative funds.
Access Alts Asia is a specialist investment club with US$2 trillion in represented assets for allocating to the Asian alternatives space, including co-invests, direct deals, hedge funds, private equity and VC. The club also facilitates high-end allocator to allocator, manager to allocator & asset owners to assets connectivity through closed-door, marquee Asia-focused Members Meets.
AccessAlts Asia has a deep relationships and intellectual capital-driven approach, giving its team a strong perspective and lineage within the industry, and an opportunity to create the first true bridge between the East and the West. Aradhna sits on several committees/ board of directors in Asia, and was the first Asian and Woman to serve on the Euromoney Institutional Investor Board of Directors.
Apart from her contribution to the world of Asian alternatives, Aradhna is passionate about philanthropy, having served on the committees of Teach for China, Sohn Conference, Move4Migrants and Youth Diabetes Action.
Aradhna is a proud mother of two high-spirited teens and has read Global Business at Harvard Business School.
