Our firm is SFC licensed Type 9 (BLG329) and U.S NFA registered (CTA - Commodity Trading Advisor 0535513).

Besides Multi-Strategy-Multi-season (ms2) hedge fund structure, we can run customized Managed Futures U.S 'CTA style' on global equity index, commodities, bond and currency futures to diversify via non-correlated assets and mitigate downside risks for those equity or bond only investors portfolios.

Global macro and CTA investing have proven over decades to be most "consistent and resilient" in good & bad times. Hence, our Multi-Assets style if expressed as an equation,  Consistent alpha generation, C = ms2.

In addition, our bespoke "Anti-inflation" solution can help to hedge rising food, energy, clothing and utility prices due to current inflationary environment that will erode a company's net profits. 

ESG or Sustainability is another focus area in our DNA and would serve to promote the brand reputation of both listed and private companies to enhance society and the environment.

We are always on lookout for new talents around the globe to build our team and competitive-edge to achieve our mission of innovation for all investors and be the best we can be.

About Us: 

A team of passionate & unconventional investment professionals with over 30 years experience dedicated to managing money prudently by solving global macro puzzles using both 'Art & Science' and relatively low leverage.

Both contrarian & trend-following at the right time of the cycle - always anticipating but never predicting based on scenario analysis that can evolve over time. Predictions run on premise of fixed notions of analysis whereas anticipating involves dynamic analysis & adapting to new conditions - like water that flows never go stale.

More importantly, the balance or harmony of yin/yang in the universe & the markets should not be underestimated and our own judgement not overestimated. 

Fundamental and technical analysis skills are basic requirements besides understanding economics and business. Our X-factor is integrating this with politics, history and philosophy to get better views of the macro environment. 

Our open, diverse culture & teamwork utilizes complementary skillsets to prevent 'groupthink' and filter out bad trades ideas. Over time, we like to incorporate good quantitative methods with super-fast computers to enhance our analysis and execution but retain the human creativity to find better innovative ways. 

We seek to find an answer and solution to a basic question:

Is there a way of investing to prevent losses in a bear market and profit from both bull (economic growth) and bear (economic recessions) markets?

This is a question that many investors over decades are trying to answer. Against prevailing wisdom, the answer is yes. 

It is the Global Macro strategy & absolute return - able to long/short in all asset classes in a highly tactical manner with high risk controls. Main drawback of macro-trading is performance tend to lag the 100% long only funds in a strong bull market. Obviously, not all macro funds can do as well in all situations.

We know it is not a perfect answer like all solutions, but it diversify risks by more than 50% (from investing in stocks only) and has reasonably good track record over last 40 years especially in times of crisis (evidence available upon request). 

A lesser known fact is institutions like endowments, foundations, family office and pension funds had invested in macro funds over the last few decades for risk mitigation & consistent performance.

Our Goals:

Ultimately, we provide a unique differentiated solution that aim to protect capital and grow at attractive risk-adjusted returns consistently and with limited downside in 'both bull & bear markets'.

People and good systems are key; investors needs may vary and we are happy to discuss a spectrum of solutions and customize suitable solutions for everyone as best as we can.

The unique position for us is to attempt to stay resilient in market downtrends as we learn and grow as a firm over time to know 'there is a way' to survive and thrive over time. This is why we live by our golden rule: "Anticipate" not react to market events. Also, stick to our PGA motto - Preserve*Grow*Adapt.

Markets are as old as the hills:

Time has not changed over eternity, only devices to tell time have. Similarly, financial markets have not changed over time, only instruments to invest have.

We want to uncover the 'fundamental truths of investing' - demand & supply, fear & greed, booms & busts, inflations & deflations, economic growth & contractions, corporate innovation & obsolescence.

Thus, our competitive-edge & investment philosophy gives us a robust & independent framework for better analysis & decision-making on the market truth & reality; not tied to earning sales commissions at the expense of clients/investors.

In addition, the humility to admit and rectify mistakes early, ability to recognize the complexity of market risks and the need to adapt via continual learning are keys to long-term success. It is important we build a learning organization to learn from mistakes and find new solutions constantly.

Below are some examples of interesting clocks over centuries using various methods to tell time:

Our Core Values:

HUMILITY - Reflect & learn from mistakes and those better than us.

INNOVATION - We think different to create better solutions.

PERSEVERANCE - Persist with resilience when others give up as things get hard.

ADAPTABILITY - Flow like water but yet agile and resourceful.

INTEGRITY - Reputation is priceless that money cannot buy.

RESPONSIBILITY - Keep our commitments to clients, employees, society and the environment.

HIP-AIR: Hip denotes 'trendy & advanced' and Air denotes 'take off or fly'. Our core values help us to adapt and stay with new trends to succeed for our clients.

"Success of our Investors is our success." 

Our Mission:

Making Innovative Investments for Investors (MIIFI).

Protect & Grow our client's capital by being adaptable, agile and resourceful.

Our Vision:

To build the most resilient & advanced alternative investment firm managing capital for good causes in bull & bear markets. 

To disrupt and create a viable alternative to "Blackrocks of the world" and educate & assist a larger pool of investors.

To realize the vision, we focus on our core values, mission & investment process.

Our Investment Process:

Preserve*Grow*Adapt (PGA)

Proprietary '5x20' Dynamic Multi-Asset Allocation model to ride 'Boom & Bust' market cycles

ESG and SRI:

We believe in Environment, Social & Governance, ESG & Social Responsible Investing, SRI as per guidelines by UN and being an early believer of 'Go Green' of the 80-90's era. Green technologies, AI & IOT applications, Biotech & Biomedical innovations are key areas we are highly interested in as they are the future of the world.

The future plan is to run a bespoke ESG funds (secondary and VC) for corporations that are both private and public listed due to ESG ratings becoming the standard yardstick on stock exchanges and maintain global brand equity & reputation.

New project to run an AI/Fintech to help global retail investors - retirees and Millennials invest better and smarter using machine learning/big data technology.

Asian-U.S focus:

We are a Multi-Asset specialist in both US and Asia markets such that both sides can mutually diversify into less correlated income streams to reduce risk and not sacrificing returns.

Future plans to expand internationally are in line with our perspective that Asia-China growth will become the fastest outside U.S.

We are open to international strategic partners that have high synergy levels and share common goals to achieve the long-term vision of being a leading niche alternative investment firm. But, if we cannot find suitable ones, we rather grow organically via disruptive strategy and hiring suitable & dedicated talents.

Professional Service Providers:

We use reputable and international service providers like audit firm, fund administrator, law firm and banks to meet the highest standards of regulatory and corporate governance.

Using reputable independent fund administrators that are external to our firm is key to protecting investors such that greater investor confidence and being 'on the same boat' is not just another marketing spin but truly align the shared interests of mutual respect. 

We take the trust and relationship with our investors very seriously because it is a rare mutually beneficial connection that goes on for the long-term. It is almost like having the stars align.

Our "Job to be done" is simply to help our clients - "Protect capital and grow it to beat annual inflation rate & cost of living regardless of market cycles or seasons". 

For private & public companies, we help with our bespoke "Anti-Inflation and ESG/Sustainability" Solutions as the "Jobs to be done" are reduce business costs, meet global corporate governance regulations & help solve the climate crisis.
