Absolute Return Fund Manager Targeting High Growth and Special Situation Opportunities | Achieving 13% p.a. Return

“Over time we have provided differential value to our investors. We believe that a large part of this is driven by the strong relationship and trust that we foster with the management teams of our long-term investee companies.

Our present portfolio comprises a mixture of growth companies in a number of sectors, with the commodities, retail, biotech, and consumer financials featuring prominently – with a small allocation towards fixed income.”
