Our equity research team strives to deliver differentiated, actionable, and impactful results to clients worldwide. We are driven by intellectual curiosity, and direct our efforts to those mid and small-cap stocks which we think have an interesting or unique business model, room to grow, and most importantly, are typically not found in a more traditional investor universe.
Research & Strategy
Our focus on China is anchored in our belief that as the country continues to develop and more closely integrate with the global economy, resultant growth opportunities are many. We think China’s developmental progress thus far is only ‘scratching the surface’ of what is yet to come.
In a parallel theme, we view the changing role of technology as an increasingly critical component in the world, making impactful contributions toward progress in the fields of finance, healthcare, education, consumer services and transportation, to name a few. We think the tech revolution is not merely a one-act play, but is instead an accelerating and growing, factor shaping the future.
At the convergence of these three current phenomena is what drives our research: uncovering technology companies with the potential to expand and grow beyond their home markets in China to become key players on the road ahead. Anchored by the strength of our team, we combine our on-the-ground presence and global perspective to reach our goal of delivering research our clients trust and value.
