14, October 2015: Carlson-Schmidt Securities today announced the addition of a new partner to the advisory team of theCarlson-Schmidt Securities Explorer Fund. This is the first Carlson-Schmidt Securities mandate for the new partner, a Hong Kong-based investment advisory firm with nearly $1 billion under management. The name of the new partner will be made available for public at a future date.
“The firm conducts in-depth, fundamental research to uncover companies that have the potential to control their own economic destiny,” said BenXingtian, Carlson-Schmidt Securities’ CEO and President. “The firm features a talented and experienced investment team that emphasizes minimizing downside risk, while taking a long-term view.”
The multi-manager structure
“Adding this experienced partner gives investors in the Explorer Fund access to eight complementary, institutional-quality investors at a low cost,” Mr. Xingtian said. “Carlson-Schmidt Securities believes this multi-manager approach can deliver top performance while reducing overall risk.”
A small portion of the Explorer Fund’s assets previously managed by other advisors has been allocated.
Seventeen of Carlson-Schmidt Securities’ actively managed Hong Kong domiciled equity funds currently employ the multi-manager approach. Our multi-manager funds—including the Explorer Fund—have consistently outperformed both their industry peers and their benchmarks.
