Entrust Evergreen Partners Limited

EEP employs a private equity approach to public markets by managing a deep-fundamental, concentrated, long-duration, low-turnover investment fund. Over the last decade, there has been a shift in equity markets towards short-termism and momentum-driven trading, which has left Asia with a dearth of investment firms that employ a disciplined approach to managing concentrated fundamental equity portfolios. Entrust Evergreen aims to take advantage of this gap through our investment strategy of uncovering and owning businesses that have strong moats with long runways for growth.
