An independent boutique asset management firm who put your interests first

Set up in 2020 as a dedicated Japanese Fund Manager, Zennor Asset Management has a simple goal – to make absolute capital gains but also to beat the benchmark.

Unlisted, independent, and with no performance fees, we don’t focus on quick wins but on taking a long-term approach to investment. We are not Index trackers, we are an active Fund manager and are not constrained by any benchmarks.

As a boutique firm we can be more flexible and agile enabling us to stay truly aligned with the interests of our investors. It also means you’ll benefit from having face to face contact with the fund managers.

100% focused on fund management

And because we are 100% owned by staff, Zennor will always treat your money like it’s our own. In fact, outsourcing our marketing risk and regulation to Spring Capital and Prodigy Capital LLP enables our fund managers to fully focus on managing money and providing you with the best service and returns possible.

In June/July 2020 we will be launching our first UCITS product called The Zennor Japan Special Situations Fund. We will cap at $1bn thus enabling the Fund managers to concentrate on mid cap and small cap special situations. We have an extensive track record in this area. We look to add one other Japanese product in our long term business plan.

Our investment approach

“The Time to buy stocks is when they are on sale, and not when they are highly priced

Warren Buffet

Combining both top down and bottom up philosophies, our investment philosophy plays a major role in how we manage your money successfully. We seek to identify investments that will do well over several years and adopt a value/growth at a reasonable price investment style to maximise return for our investors.

Our investment philosophy is to:

  • Be pragmatic and contrarian
  • Invest in companies with dominant market share, competitive advantages and pricing power
  • Focus on small and mid cap stocks with little or no coverage
  • Invest in businesses that trade at a significant discount to their real intrinsic value
  • Keep reinventing and questioning everything we do
  • Be patient

With thirty years’ experience managing Japanese equities, we combine a common-sense approach with detailed analysis to deliver sustainable returns for all our clients.
