About Us
  • About Us

    A Specialist in Greater China Equities

    Growth focused, fundamentals driven, stock picking

    Red Gate Asset Management is an independent investment manager focused exclusively on China’s equity markets. Our guiding principles have always remained the same – utilise our extensive understanding of the China markets to offer the best investment expertise and service to clients wanting to capture China’s economic growth by constructing portfolios of outstanding businesses that will provide long-term alpha for our clients through multiple market cycles.

    Our on-the-ground team combines both international and domestic experience in managing offshore China long-only funds and separately managed accounts for global investors, including; banks, family offices, pension funds, and sovereign wealth funds.

    China’s stock markets are vastly under-researched and exhibit a high degree of inefficiency relative to those in the west. As an active investment manager, we believe an inefficient market implies that there is scope to screen the universe of stocks and identify mispriced or undervalued companies. This premise forms the foundation of our conviction and commitment to fundamentals driven stock picking.

Investment Philosophy
  • Investment Philosophy

    “Our primary objective is to construct concentrated portfolios of outstanding businesses that will provide long-term alpha for our clients through successive market cycles.” – Chingxiao Shao (Founder, Red Gate)


    We achieve this by following three key investment principles:

    INVEST IN QUALITY GROWTH:  We identify and invest in quality growth companies that demonstrate and maintain strong top-line and bottom-line revenue growth where returns are driven by compound earnings through consecutive market cycles

    INVEST WITH CONVICTION:  Buy what we know and know why we own them by employing strict growth criteria and by only focusing on a handful of the best investment ideas to increase the margin of safety for our clients

    INVEST AT A REASONABLE PRICE:  Valuations are considered in context of growth indicators and only once we have a comprehensive view on a company’s business to ensure no mismatch in valuation vs. the growth indicators of an existing or potential portfolio company

  • Investment Process

    We employ a fundamentals-driven investment approach, supported by strict growth-focused investment criteria and rigorous on-the-ground due diligence

  • Responsible Investment

    As a PRI signatory we take an active approach in considering ESG concerns during all stages of the investment process.  These issues, particularly corporate governance, are integral to mitigating risk and ensuring the success of our investment strategy as we look to identify quality growth companies with sustainable business models in the China markets.  All portfolio companies have been subject to ESG screening and analysis, from the idea generation stages and on-the-ground due diligence, through to the portfolio construction process and on-going monitoring.
