Our firm and employees engage in both formal and informal philanthropy, including Oasis’s support of 100 Women in Finance and various other Hong Kong and US social and charitable causes. Oasis also supports individual employees’ interests in innovative social programs.
Very close to our hearts is the Karen Leung Foundation, of which Oasis is a founding sponsor, and which was established in memory of Oasis trader Karen Leung, who passed away in October 2012 at age 35 after a courageous and dignified battle with metastatic cervical cancer. The Karen Leung Foundation was established for the purpose of funding and promoting education, prevention, research and treatment of gynecological cancers.
Oasis is a proud partner for the Karen Leung Foundation and its annual investor conference charity event, first held in Hong Kong in June 2013. The conference, now in partnership with the globally recognized Sohn Conference Foundation, is a must-attend event for Asia providing a forum for successful professional investors to present a market view or investment idea, allowing attendees such as sell and buy side investment professionals, asset allocators, and private investors to glean valuable insights from leaders in the field. Many of these investors, who manage both long-only and hedge fund portfolios, rarely share their insights in any public forum. Information on the Sohn Hong Kong/Karen Leung Foundation conference is available at http://www.sohnconference.org/hong-kong/ and http://www.karenleungfoundation.org/events.
Oasis is also a member of Hedge Funds Care Hong Kong, the Asia chapter of the international charity Hedge Funds Care, founded in 1998 and supported largely by the hedge fund industry, whose sole mission is preventing and treating child abuse – for more information please see http://asia.hfc.org.
