Antoine DENAIFFE -Â Entrepreneur, Performance Capital Pte Ltd
As a French finance lawyer or as a corporate finance advisor, I have worked the last 10 years for renowned law firms and investment banks. Having an entrepreneurial mind-set, I have actually launched -and subsequently sold to a boutique investment bank- a corporate governance consultancy firm in 2007.
Being convinced, that in emerging markets better corporate governance practices lead to statistically and economically significantly higher market values, last December, I have set up in Singapore, Performance Capital Pte Ltd, with the aim to start up a “governance based” Asian Emerging Markets Fund. The Fund will aim to achieve returns that exceed the average returns on Asian emerging Markets by benefiting from the expected:
– predictive effect of “good” corporate governance on firm’s share price performance;
– higher growth rates (and less correlation to macroeconomic factors) of small and mid-caps stocks;
while maintaining a suitable level of diversification by investing in different market sectors.
In parallel, I am also active in seed funding in France and Singapore.
