Overview
Royal Assets Singapore LONG ONLY FUND

The Royal Assets Singapore Long Only Fund is a traditional long only strategy targeting to outperform the broader Singapore equity market through fundamental deep-dive research and subsequent investment in quality companies with widening business moats and earnings power. This fund consists of a focused long only portfolio concentrated in 30 to 35 Singapore stocks, which are selected through a systematic, in-house analytical framework. The focus is on liquid, mid and large Singapore capitalization companies within diverse industry sectors. These are corporations that can grow their free cash flow over time and allocate earnings to value creating activities as well as dividends. The Singapore economy has historically offered a stable environment for entrepreneurship, economic growth and capital protection in difficult times.

The long book aims to be factor neutral across Growth, Value and Low Volatility whilst buying into high quality companies with a simple and comprehensible business model, at reasonable valuations. We aim to stay invested long-term, whilst minimizing portfolio drawdowns during specific time periods. The Fund aims to capture about 27-35% of equity downside but up to 65-70% in rampant markets.
