Interview with Vincent Lam, Chief Investment Officer of VL Asset Management Company
VL Asset Management, founded in January 2009, is a Hong Kong-based investment firm licensed by the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) of Hong Kong. In its team of eight, four are investment professionals with complementary skills across fund management, equity research, equity trading, journalism and company audit.
The firm manages one flagship fund at present – VL Champion Fund, a long/short equity growth portfolio with a ‘value investing with catalysts’ approach that has registered a net return of approximately 22% since its launch in June 2009. Independent research is conducted to identify under-researched and under-valued equities with potential catalysts to unlock hidden value. The team’s success has been largely due to early identification of undervalued or under-researched companies with clean balance sheets and sustainable business models.
