General Strategy. HCM’s investment decisions are based on bottom-up analysis and research. HCM generally focuses on private (or otherwise less liquid) investment opportunities, including venture capital, private equity, private debt and buyout transactions, across multiple industries, but a material portion of client investments may become listed and clients may also participate in publicly-listed (or similarly liquid) investment opportunities. HCM invests primarily in reasonably priced companies that provide substantial long-term growth prospects. Although HCM monitors macro-economic factors and market trends, HCM generally avoids market-timing strategies and focuses primarily on bottom-up opportunities. Clients can hold publicly traded securities.
HCM invests globally with a particular focus on companies or assets having substantial relations with Asia. HCM focuses on understanding fundamental risks, uncovering long-term growth potential, and targeting industries that it understands and can monitor.
Short Strategy and Hedging. HCM may, from time to time, utilize short sales and maintain short positions in order to hedge risks that are present in or that could affect a client portfolio, to generate returns for a client account, or to structure ad manage risks in an investment strategy. HCM is cognizant of the risks of trading short and monitors exposure carefully. HCM is cognizant of the risks of trading short and monitors exposure carefully.
