MEKONG FUND

After decades of base building, the countries of the Greater Mekong Sub-Region have come of age, with Thailand as the leading entrepot for trade and capital flow. The Knight Mekong Fund invests in listed and pre-IPO companies in the countries of the Mekong Region: Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, including Mekong companies listed outside the region, such as Hong Kong and Singapore. The Fund applies similar value driven principles and contrarian timing that have served the Bangkok based manager well in Thai and ASEAN orientated funds, generating 15-20% per annum for the past 5 years. More information about the fund is available in the presentation below.
