Event Details Add to Calendar
HKSFA is honoured to have the presence of Mr. Fred Liu, CFA, Managing Partner of Hayden Capital to share his expertise at our Value Investing Gathering.

Hayden Capital, as long-term investors, they are aiming to take a 10+ year view with every investment that they make.  Over such a long investment period, the key drivers for stock performance are Sales & Earnings Growth (i.e. fundamental business performance factors), rather than traditional metrics other investment styles may focus on, such as “multiple expansion, asset values, or catalysts.  

In particular, their investment process focuses on the two key drivers of earnings power growth: 
1) How quickly the business is reinvesting its cash flows?  and 
2) What rates of return it is able to earn on those investment projects? 

In order to adequately assess these variables, investors will need to go beyond simply looking at the public financial statements… they’ll need to collect data from government databases, use web-scrapping tools, talk with suppliers and industry experts, and look at case studies from similar businesses around the world.

During this presentation, Mr. Fred Liu will walk through this framework, and show how they approach this process at Hayden.  He will also share a few examples of previous investments, and the types of analysis they did to gain comfort in the business’ growth trajectory.
