Sigmoid Capital is a Pan Asia investment fund seeking to identify transformational businesses in Asia. "Sigmoidal Curve" means S-curve in math, it represents the type of inflection potentials we look for in our investments. The strategy is underpinned by long term, fundamental research.
We look for S-shaped inflections in industry trends or in companies's earnings.We have found that Asia companies, particularly mid sized Asia companies offer more inefficiencies. Knowing where to look for these mispricings and how to gather information to build convictions when these opportunties occur are key success factors for investing.
Our on the ground research team and propriatary investment process focus on generating "second level thinking" vs. market consensus. We believe thinking differently and forming "differentiated views" are essential for consistent alpha generation.
