"If there is one single explanation for the success of a business, it would without a doubt be the personalities at the top. Many are interested, few live their work."

Who is Zhipeng?

Zhipeng graduated from Nanyang Technological University with a Bachelor in Accountancy (Honours) and was previously a Senior Auditor with Ernst & Young Singapore. He is also a Chartered Accountant (CA) and a CFA charter holder.

Backed by his past experience as an auditor and in-depth knowledge in finance, business appraisal and valuations, Zhipeng brings about a different dimension when analysing annual reports of Asia listed companies, especially when it comes to spotting ‘hidden messages’ among financial statements.

On top of quantitative aspects, he believes in placing greater emphasis on the qualitative aspect of a business and its management. He focuses on finding the ‘X factor’ of these companies – whether it is product know-how, intangible process know-how or exceptional company culture, which is unique and irreplaceable. Additionally, a business with ‘founder lead management’, a growth mindset, and unwavering resolve to accomplish their mission is highly favoured.

As an Investment Analyst in the Public Markets team, Zhipeng monitors the Japan and Taiwan, Speciality Retailers and Community Platform sectors.

Zhipeng loves spending time with his family and often goes for jogs and swims to stay healthy and keep his mind sharp. As a lifelong learner in the art of value investing, he reads avidly to pursue excellence in his analysis.
