Hopu's Ong raising own $2 bln Asia fund -source

HONG KONG, Feb 21 (Reuters) - Hopu Investment Management Co founding partner Richard Ong is establishing his own $2 billion Asia fund, a source with direct knowledge of the matter said on Monday, ending speculation on the next move for the high-profile former Goldman Sachs (GS.N) dealmaker.

Ong’s new fund, RRJ Capital, will focus on more traditional private equity investments, the source said.

Hopu was co-founded with Fang Fenglei, who helped Goldman establish its China investment banking joint venture, and Dominic Ho, a former KPMG executive.

Hopu, which raised a more than $2 billion investment fund, declined to comment. (Reporting by Stephen Aldred; Editing by Jacqueline Wong)
