Strategic Vision Investment (“SVI”) is a Hong Kong-based long-term investment management firm. We focus on deep-dive fundamental research and specialize in Greater China equities with local presence across Hong Kong and Mainland China.
We currently manage two strategies: a Long/Short equity strategy and a Long-Only equity strategy.
At SVI, we leverage our on-the-ground presence to conduct rigorous proprietary research. We seek to invest in high-quality companies benefiting from identified structural mega-trends in Greater China that we believe can re-define the future and generate significant value creation over the next few decades.
We employ a long-term, fundamental approach rooted in deep-dive company research with a stringent set of investment criteria. Through this, we aim to construct a high-conviction and high-quality portfolio of future mega-trend beneficiaries with the potential to achieve significant upside potential over a long-term horizon.
We believe our long-term horizon, forward-looking vision and focused approach enable us to see through short-term noises and gain an earlier and deeper understanding over consensus.
In our Long/Short strategy, we aim to balance the long book with a robust short book via effective portfolio protection mechanisms that allow us to navigate market volatility and better hold onto our structural longs. Our portfolio construction aims to expand portfolio returns while mitigating significant market downside risks.
SVI was previously known as BosValen Asset Management (BVAM) and founded by Ken Xu in 2014. To better reflect the nature of our investment philosophy, we re-branded to SVI in 2020, highlighting our key strengths: a strategic vision to identifying attractive investment opportunities for the long-term.
