Santa Lucia Asset Management (“SLAM”) Pte. Ltd. is a Singapore-registered, asset management company. SLAM is licensed under the Singapore Securities and Futures Act and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore to provide fund management services to accredited and institutional investors. Our goal is to provide value-based absolute return investment solutions to high net worth individuals, family offices and trusts, and small institutions. The company was formed in 2010 and opened business with mandates for several existing global funds managed by the founder of SLAM, in one case continuously since 1994.
SLAM has both equity and fixed income experience in all major financial markets. Funds managed and/or advised by SLAM professionals have held investments in over 40 countries while executing their global mandates. We believe our multi-national approach with its particular emphasis on Asian markets is important as it offers clients maximum flexibility in a rapidly changing world.
Currently, assets under management are approximately US$900 million.
Value in financial markets manifests itself in more than one form. Currently SLAM employs four distinct, but related, value investing methodologies. All portfolios are absolute return, global in scope, primarily equity-focused, and either exclusively long or long-biased.
In serving clients and in meeting their investment objectives whether as shareholders in proprietary products or as intermediate customers, SLAM applies the same high standards of value driven analysis. Value investing has made a long and distinguished contribution to wealth preservation and creation going back seventy years. We follow this style because it works. Analysis of the MSCI over the past 30 years profiled in the Investors Chronicle shows that globally “value” stocks have outperformed “growth” stocks by 2.8 percentage points a year. SLAM is committed to maintaining value principles that are evergreen while we strive at the same time to find new ways to apply them in the context of constantly changing market conditions.
