Based in Hong Kong, our team is made up of 12 investment professionals. We take a long-term perspective based on an industry focus across the region. We invest in quality companies using an active, bottom-up investment process. Our goal is to identify companies that can outpace market expectations and deliver:


  • High and/or improving return on capital
  • Strong balance sheets
  • Consistent cash-flow generation

Responsible/ethical

We favour companies that adhere to good environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices, believing that these factors are relevant to a company’s risk/return profile and have a bearing on its long-term sustainability.

Opportunistic

We recognize that short-term market shocks can create opportunities to buy companies at a significant discount to what we assess is the fair value of the underlying business.

Long-term perspective

We take a long-term perspective based on industry focus across the region.

High-conviction

Through high-conviction stock selection, we aim to build portfolios that generate differentiated excess returns over time.

Methodical

We rely on a methodical and consistent empirical process designed with a longer-term view.

Our approach to incorporating ESG factors isn’t just one step in our investment process – it’s embedded throughout. To do this, we access and analyze information from a broad array of sources, including external data providers and, more importantly, on-the-ground channel checks. The data gathered from these sources can be both quantitative and qualitative. We believe that incorporating ESG factors will allow for more robust risk assessments on a stock and portfolio level.
