About the Firm
NTAsset is a boutique investment company that specializes in small and mid-cap opportunities in the Asia ex Japan market. Founded in 2005 by experienced investors, our team has a proven track record of identifying and investing in high-potential companies. We focus on generating absolute returns by investing long term in companies in our universe that are mispriced. With our experience, expertise and commitment to long-term growth, NTAsset is a trusted partner for investors looking to invest in the region.
What makes us who we are
At NTAsset, we use a quantified factor-based approach using our in-house developed platform to screen and monitor thousands of stocks in our universe, highlighting opportunities across the region. Once opportunities are identified, our research involves deep due diligence before investing which corresponds to our long-term investment approach. Our team meets regularly with the management of every company we invest in to ensure our investment thesis remains true. We believe the combination of our investment approach, fee structure, portfolio construction and alignment of interest are unique and designed to generate as much value to long term investors.
Given the size of the companies we invest in and the potential size of our investment in each of these companies, we like to play a more active role in promoting and encouraging better corporate governance (including ethical business practices) in all our investments.
Alignment of interest
From putting a substantial amount of the founding shareholders’ money into the fund, our investment philosophy, fee structure, full portfolio disclosure to our stance of not taking any soft commissions and not to manage segregated portfolios, we can confidently show that the fund objectives are fully aligned with investors’ goals.
Our performance fee structure is designed to reward us only if we achieve our targeted hurdle returns of 10% per year, and that’s a cumulative hurdle.
Our base case is that we target to achieve a growth in line with the underlying growth of the portfolio, which has historically ranged between 11-15% per annum. However, we do expect a re-rating of the portfolio as our individual investment thesis plays out which would deliver higher than our base case returns.
