We seek to identify undervalued companies capable of achieving high sustainable returns and benefiting from positive fundamental change to capture superior returns in Asia; one of the most dynamic and fast changing regions in the world. We believe that strong or improving Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance is essential for generating higher sustainable returns. We term the above as “Harvesting Growth, Harnessing Change”. We aim to have a balanced portfolio with the largest representation of stocks with undervalued high sustainable returns and positive fundamental change, with ESG Risks and Returns analysis integrated throughout.

A dynamic market transforming itself at an unprecedented speed. Capturing value from diverse Asian opportunities requires deep understanding and cultural awareness.
