...possibly permanently.

We’re sure that’s the explanation and that there’s nothing sinister or nefarious about this:

China's asset management association said that it has failed to contact 12 domestic hedge fund companies after trying to contact them through telephones, e-mails and short message services.

Fear not, though: The Asset Management Association of China is ready, willing and able to put all 12 of them on milk cartons throughout East Asia if that’s what it takes.

The fund association urged the 12 companies, all of them little-known names, to contact it within five working days, or else would classify them as being "missing".

People Still Launching Hedge Funds Faster Than They Can Fail

Well, the numbers are finally in for 2012 and it was, relatively speaking, a bloodbath for hedge funds, with more going to their grave or down the drain than in 2010 or 2011. But there were still 235 more hedge funds at the end of the year than at its beginning, because those who have previously shuttered a hedge fund due to their failure to raise/make enough money gave it another go last year. Look for more of the same this year, as fresh-faced and not-so-fresh-faced hedge fund managers hang out a new shingle for a few months, only to find out that investors are only interested in having Ray Dalio manage their money.
