Investment Approach

On November 8, 2010 Credit Suisse Asset Management announced an agreement with KIMCO International Pte. Ltd. to become KIMCO’s exclusive distributor. KIMCO is a Singapore-based hedge fund manager that employs a Japanese equity long/short investment strategy. This arrangement further solidifies the strategic collaboration between Credit Suisse and KIMCO, and enables KIMCO to focus on its investment performance and portfolio management role while Credit Suisse administers all aspects of the marketing and distribution efforts.

Founded in 2006, KIMCO employs a fundamental, value-oriented and catalyst-driven approach to stock selection, coupled with relatively low net exposure to seek to capture alpha and generate absolute returns. KIMCO has a dedicated team of investment professionals based in both Singapore and Tokyo.
