Investment Process

Simplicity and clarity are the two guiding elements behind the team-based investment process. The manager and the team follow a long-term team-based approach, picking believed-to-be best companies in each sector. The team does many site visits, regularly meets management and does rigourous due-diligence work. The aim is to find new high quality regional companies with strong financials, robust corporate governance policies, treating minority shareholders well. The team must reach a consensus before a stock is included into a portfolio. Turnover at 10-15% p.a. has been low throughout most of the fund’s life, consisting mainly of topping and tailing, with very few names entering and leaving the portfolio. The solid team of over 40 investment professionals across six locations (Singapore, Sydney, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Tokyo) has Hugh Young as Head of Asian Equities. The entire team strictly adheres to the process, and Young has made sure that the team-based process developed over many years ensures continuity. The latter is one of the key strengths in relation to this and other funds managed by the team.
