Established in 1989, SPARX Group was founded by Mr. Shuhei Abe, a pioneer in Asia’s alternative investment industry. SPARX has offices in Tokyo, Seoul and Hong Kong conducting on-the-ground research to deliver Asia’s market intelligence to our investors worldwide.
The fund’s primary objective is to maximize risk adjusted returns by investing in fundamentally attractive equity and equity related securities issued by companies in the Asia Pacific region and shorting those we believe to be overvalued or structurally flawed.
SPARX’s investment philosophy is that macro is the aggregate of the micro, and as such, our fundamental analysis will encompass a thorough bottom-up investigation of historical financial performance of a business over several industry cycles. Our analysis is then measured against the subject company’s share price performance and the current macro conditions to help decide whether to long or short the company. Our ability to analyse the growth drivers of businesses in Asia along with our regional experience to understand Asia’s market dynamics relative to the rest of the world and even intra-Asia is our own unique blend to consistently deliver alpha.
