Strategy Overview

Key Facts


Specialists in some of the world's fastest-growing markets

Driven by research of the fundamental economic and financial factors underpinning companies, FSSA Investment Managers delve deep into the Asia Pacific region and global emerging markets to invest in what we believe to be high quality companies with the potential to outperform benchmark indicies over the long term. 

As stock driven investors, we scrutinise every aspect of a business that may contribute to its share price performance, constructing relatively focused portfolios of between 30 - 60 stocks that aim to offer our investors exposure to high quality companies in some of the world's fastest growing markets. Our investment strategies include single country portfolios covering China, India and Japan, as well as regional Asia Pacific and global emerging markets portfolio.

Why invest with us in Asia-Pacific and global emerging market equities?

FSSA Investment Managers portfolios are built company by company based on our analysis of any potential economic or financial factors that may be driving individual share prices, with little regard for benchmark index constituents or how the broader market will perform. Our aim is to grow investors' capital as well as prevent any capital loss (although this is not guaranteed), constructing portfolios of what we believe to be high quality companies that are supported by long-term investment themes*, including: 

Dominant consumer franchises

With favourable demographics and populations that are still growing - particuarly in Southeast Asia and India - we believe dominant consumer franchises offer good growth over the long term. 

High quality financials

Banks and high quality financials should benefit from similar economic drivers as consumer businesses: demographics, rising incomes and urbanisation. 

A connected and automated world

As the world embraces a digital future, Asian technology firms should benefit from strong consumer demand and a growing market. At the same time, lower-cost robots allows manufacturers to automate their processes. 

Rising healthcare spending

Many countries are under-invested in healthcare compared to the global average. As these economies become richer, we expect healthcare and health-related spending to rise.

Liquidity refers to the speed and ease with which financial assets can be sold in the market without dramatically affecting the price. Highly liquid assets are quickly sold with little-to-no price impact; highly illiquid assets may take a long time to sell and cause a large shift in price.
