iVenture's investment style is absolute return, active and un-benchmarked, driven by careful stock-picking, with a long bias. We believe in creating value through active management, unconstrained by benchmarks. Rigorous stock selection through in-house fundamental research with due consideration to macro-economic development, is a cornerstone of iVenture's approach to the Asia ex-Japan markets: true understanding of companies is a critical factor in generating performance and risk reduction. Diversification is generated through investment in a spectrum of both large and small caps. Our disciplined investment process incorporates regular performance reviews; price targets are determined before investments are initiated and strictly applied in the execution of an exit strategy. Recourse is made to both gearing and cash positions, appropriate to prevailing market conditions.
