Swiss-Asia Cap Intro Interview Series – Credence Global Fund
March 31, 2016
Written by Swiss-Asia
Credence Global Fund’s Portfolio Manager Ruhong Huang has been trading Chinese and international financial and commodity markets for 18 years. His trading life started in the 1990s when China first allowed cash equity and commodity futures trading. Before making his Singapore debut at the Cap Intro by Swiss-Asia event, we emailed Ruhong a few questions to better understand his new fund.
- What is Credence Global Fund’s investment strategy?
Credence Global Fund deploys relative value trading, which is the process of identifying and capturing likely changes in the price relationship between related or similar assets in the same or different markets. With this investment strategy, we aim to achieve stable returns through relative value commodity and financial trading in and among China, the US and other world markets. This will help us achieve absolute rates of return while minimizing the risk of capital loss.
- Why did you decide to start your own fund?
For many years, I have enjoyed trading in the financial markets. As it has been profitable thus far, I have decided to set up my own fund.
- How do you keep the momentum going in a volatile and unpredictable market?
Credence Global Fund is driven by Relative Value Trading, this means that unpredictable market volatilities do present lots of trading opportunities for us. With this investment strategy, we are confident of keeping the momentum going.
- What is your trading philosophy?
We try to keep things simple. When the market constantly fluctuates between balanced and unbalanced positions, we use these volatilities to generate profits for the fund.
- For aspiring entrepreneurs, what should they do when starting their own fund?
Aspiring entrepreneurs should first have sufficient evidence of a workable investment strategy for the fund.
- If you were not a fund manager, what would you be?
If I were not a fund manager, I would of course be a farmer. I will be doing that after retiring as a fund manager.
