Asia Frontier Capital Ltd. is a pioneering fund management company that specializes in investing in high growth Asian frontier economies by managing the AFC Asia Frontier Fund and the AFC Vietnam Fund.
The AFC Asia Frontier Fund invests in public equities of Asian frontier countries that are seeing increasing consumption due to favorable demographic trends, rising incomes and high GDP growth. The fund invests in listed equities of companies that have their principal business activities in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Iraq, Laos, Maldives, Mongolia, Myanmar (Burma), Nepal, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. The AFC Asia Frontier Fund is positioned to take advantage of the continuing economic shifts in these countries and offers high returns combined with significant diversification opportunities. This fund is directed by the founder and CEO of Asia Frontier Capital, Thomas Hugger, who has been investing in frontier markets across Asia and Africa for more than 20 years.
The AFC Vietnam Fund was launched on the 11th of December 2013 and is directed under the executive leadership of Thomas Hugger, Andreas Karall and Andreas Vogelsanger who have more than 75 years combined experience managing investments in frontier markets, Asia and around the world. The fund invests exclusively in Vietnamese equities to capture value in growth companies; especially in the small to medium size company segment. The fund's Chief Investment Officer, Andreas Karall, has identified more than 100 listed stocks in Vietnam that have a P/E ratio between 6x and 7x and are trading around book value. Many of these companies have a dividend yield of more than 9% and some have a net cash position that is almost as high as their market cap.
