Why invest?  

Asia-specific

The Fund focuses on companies listed or operating in Asia, giving 100% unrestricted exposure to the world’s fastest growing region.

Established

The Fund’s process has been shown to be effective, based on a philosophy developed by Paul Moore, over 30 years. This has produced attractive long term capital growth. 

Unrestricted

We have an authentic investment process where our exposure to countries, industry sectors or market capitalisation is determined solely by our conviction in the risk/ reward opportunities that we identify in individual stocks. Macroeconomic themes do not play a role in stock selection or portfolio construction. No conviction at the stock level = no investment.

Opportunistic and concentrated

The Fund aims to create long term wealth for our co-investors by finding and exploiting investment anomalies wherever they are. We find opportunities where others may only see risks.

The Fund’s portfolio typically consists of 15-35 stock-specific ideas in which we have the strongest conviction.

Co-investment

Our co-investors receive access to a unique subset of opportunities to which they would otherwise find difficult to access. The management team have significant investments in the Fund – they invest for and with you.
