Founded in 2007, Chartwell Capital was established with a simple mission in mind: to be your reliable and enterprising partner for undiscovered or overlooked investment opportunities in Asia. As the founder and CIO, my responsibility as a son, brother, husband and now father has evolved apace with our company’s transition from a family office into an asset management company. Members of the investment team that once served the family operation have become career-aspiring market participants, actively involved in the financial community.
In spite of our job titles changing during this transition, our responsibilities have not. We remain investment stewards, safeguarding our clients’ capital and seeking unbiased, intelligent, and profitable investment opportunities.
A commonly held belief is that Asia is high-risk. We beg to differ, and suggest that an economy is not equivalent to its financial market just as a company is not equivalent to its stock. They each have their own unique patterns with only occasional overlaps. From our viewpoint, risk relates to the quality of an investment, volatility relates to the characteristic of the investment, and return relates to the entry price of that investment.
