Gabriel GregoGabriel Grego of Quintessential Capital Management has claimed another victory for short-sellers. This time around, it was a rather remarkable victory, as the problems with Penumbra have not been his standard fare. Instead of fraud, the problem was the company's Jet7 catheter.

Net Asset Value as of April 2015 (per unit): $15,518

We are pleased to announce that for the period of 1H2015, the Asia Value Fund is up by 15.2%. Relative to the benchmarks, the Asia Value Fund has outperformed the Vanguard Pacific ETF and STI ETF by 12.7% and 14.0% respectively. Since inception, the NAV of the fund has increased by $5,518, translating to an increase of 55.2%, outperforming both benchmarks during this period.

During this past 3 months, we have delivered a respectable performance under our deep value strategy. On that note, we would like to caution shareholders that past performance is no indication of future performance and that markets in general are enjoying a time of low interest rates. Economic growth remains anemic in key economies like China, U.S. and Europe. The overhang of the Greece crisis, Chinese stock market bubble and most recently, the bankruptcy of Puerto Rico are some of the developments that may derail global financial stability. As bottom-up investors, we have no special insights to offer regarding macroeconomic developments and instead leave it to the realm of soothsayers. Our investment strategy remains guided by micro valuations. Consequently, we have sold down all positions that we deem to be near fair value and have entered into various new positions that we deem to still be severely undervalued.

As always, please feel free to let us know if you have any clarifications regarding the investments in the ValueEdge Asia Value Fund.

I developed my passion for investment management especially equity research at a relatively young age. My investment journey began when I was 20, at a point in time where markets were still recovering from the Global Financial Crisis. My portfolio started from money I saved over the past years and through working during the holidays. I was fortunate to have a good friend with common investing mentality to began my journey towards value investing. To date, we still research and invest in companies together, discussing valuations and potential risks of a company. To date, I manage a fund with a value investing style. Positions are decided upon via a bottom-up approach or smart speculation (a term I came up with when buying a stock for quick profit due to a mismatch in prices in the market due to takeovers/selling of a subsidiary or associate). Apart from managing my own portfolio, I enjoy sharing my research with family and friends, seeking their opinions and views towards the stock. Reading Economics in London, I constantly keep up with the financial news in Singapore & Hong Kong. Despite my busy schedule, it has not stopped me from enjoying other aspects of life. I enjoy a variety of activities in whatever free time I may have – endurance running, marathons, traveling, fine dining, whiskey appreciation, fashion. Lastly, I enjoy meeting new people, discussing ideas and gaining new perspectives towards issues in the world.
