  • Finding Value in Asia: Discovering Tech Innovators in an Exponential World Recorded: Jul 12 2018 59 mins
    Koon Boon KEE, Director & Co-Founder HERO Investment Management
    Can the megacap tech elephants still dance? Or should the question be: Is there an alternative and better way to capture long-term investment returns, created by disruptive forces and innovation without falling for the “Next-Big-Thing" trap by overpaying for "growth" and chasing to invest in the fads, 'me-too' imitators, or even in seemingly cutting-edge technologies without the ability to monetize and generate recurring revenue with a sustainable and scalable business model?

    We see a distinct value opportunity in an exclusive group of under-the-radar Asian SMID-cap tech stocks who are exceptional market leaders in their respective fields with unique scalable business models run by high-integrity, honorable and far-sighted entrepreneurs with a higher purpose in solving high-value problems for their customers and society whom we call H.E.R.O. - “Honorable. Exponential. Resilient. Organization.”.

    - Investing in exponential innovators = The most relevant language in value investing?
    - Why are these exponential & exceptional innovators overlooked and mis-priced winners and the most relevant multi-year investment trend and opportunity?
    - The analytical framework to identify winners, including rejuvenating the defensive economic "moat" analysis by complementing with the more offensive “catapult” analysis, using this new lens to view the value creation process afresh and continually discover innovators creating, enabling and capturing new demand with exponential non-linear growth potential
    - Remaining skeptical and grounded in the Asian capital jungles and avoiding the investing pitfalls and traps of Asian-style accounting fraud and mis-governance which western-based fraud detection tools and techniques have not been adequately adapted to the Asian context
    - Selected case studies

    Other key takeaways include:

    - Aligning your marketing goals into creating inbound opportunities which allows your firm to grow
    - How to use the inbound model to not only create more leads, but turn these leads into delighted brand ambassadors

  • Digital Currencies: The Evolution of Currency from Gold to Fiat to Crypto Recorded: Jul 5 2018 64 mins
    Paul Johnson, Blockhous Academy
    Currency has been many things over the ages. First, it was barley, salt and cattle. It then became metal, mostly gold and silver. Representational currency came next, where pieces of paper represented holdings in gold or silver. Then fiat became the norm, where the currency's value was supported only by the government issuing it. Crypto-currencies have now entered the scene and are believed by many to be setting the stage for the next shift in currency. The question remains: What will it take to drive adoption and allow digital currencies to replace fiat as the major form of currency on the planet?
