WHAT WE DO
Our flagship fund, The Asia Opportunity Fund, aims to provide our clients with cost effective active asset management. The fund employs a strategy that is simply understood, easily evaluated and that is designed for growing wealth over the long-term. In line with this, we have implemented a low fee structure.
At Wordsworth Asset Management, our basic philosophy is that our investment decisions should be simple and easily understood by our investors. We believe Einstein’s dictum that “if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
We have aligned our investment values with our business values. An integral part of our stock selection process considers the environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices of the companies that we invest in. It is well established that businesses with better ESG practices deliver higher returns in the long term.
