The APS Covenant

APS’ Values and Vision

Our purpose is to partner with our clients to meet their long-term investment objectives.  “In Search of Alpha” describes our mission – we work harder to identify and deliver 4 different sources of sustainable alphas to our clients.

Deep Fundamental Research

APS’ investment decisions are predicated on investigative research, independent thinking and having conviction in our views. We like to focus on companies that are poorly researched, we go “the extra mile” in our research to reduce the risk of capital impairment.

Institutional Boutique

We have a strong long-term track record in the markets we invest in. We are agile and yet disciplined, decisive and yet careful in our conviction calls, we have built a corporate and governance infrastructure to serve global institutional asset owners in an effective and client-focused way. Our middle-and-back-office infrastructure was built more than 19 years ago and includes STP, GIPs, automated compliance system, etc.

Fully Aligned with our Clients

We are an employee-owned firm with significant “skin in the game”. The entire firm is structured to deliver to our stakeholders.

Headquartered in Singapore, 3 Offices in China

We have established offices in Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing and Shenzhen. Our research offices share ideas.

Pioneer in Investing in China for Over 2 Decades

Having established a research presence in Shanghai back in 2002, APS is considered a pioneer in investing in China. In addition, our investment experience of 43 years in China and its external relationships help us better understand the world in a historical context and gives us the investment memory that is critical to maneuver through sometimes uneven and tricky landscapes.
