Oaktree-Hong Kong is an active, specialist manager which performs in-house research. They aim to prevent losses, believing that in the opportunistic markets in which they operate, if they avoid the losers, the winners will take care of themselves.The firm dedicated staff of specialists for each market performs research and creates a methodology which they consistently apply. They only invest in less efficient markets and insist that each portfolio practices a single investment specialty. They establish the charter for each investment specialty as explicitly as possible and do not deviate.Oaktree-Hong Kong believes that consistently excellent performance is only achieved through superior knowledge of companies and their securities and utilizes an entirely bottom-up investment process based upon proprietary, company-specific research. They use overall portfolio structuring as a defensive tool to help avoid dangerous concentration. They keep portfolios fully invested whenever attractively priced assets can be bought and while they may invest defensively, they never move to raise cash when there is concern about the market climate.
