Investment Philosophy

We believe that markets are not fully efficient and active management, based on fundamental research can add value. The greatest inefficiencies are at the security level and we spend most time and resources here. Stock selection is the main source of added value.

Investment Approach

  • Focus on stock selection coupled with a top-down overlay.
  • Stock selection with emphasis on fundamental analysis based on our strong research infrastructure, extensive company visits and our in-depth understanding of Chinese equity markets.
  • Fund manager based in Hong Kong with deep local exposure.
  • Strong commitment in this region along with the NAM Shanghai office.
  • Local ideas with global perspective. The core investment team in Hong Kong is further supported by our globally networked research teams based in Shanghai, Singapore and Germany. We hold Multi-dimension discussion by weekly China portfolio meeting.
  • We follow a wide and unconstrained investment universe and invest in Hong Kong listed Chinese stocks, ADRs (American Depository Receipts) as well as A-shares. This offers great opportunity and flexibility to select stocks.
