Capabilities

At Byron Stafford, asset management is our business

What makes us different?

We're known for our investment expertise and customer focus.

  • We are an asset management company, only managing assets for third parties, this means we can focus solely on our customers' needs.
  • We take a predominantly long-only approach. We aim to grow our clients' assets based on fundamentally sound investments, and avoiding market temporary fashion.
  • Our processes and portfolios are transparent to our clients - they trust in what we're doing because they understand it.

We manage billions of third party assets from our offices around Asia, across the four asset classes:

  • Equities
  • Fixed income
  • Property
  • Byron Stafford Alternative Solutions

 

We have also developed a solutions business that can blend our abilities across different asset classes to provide tailored investment outcomes to meet specific client needs. This can incorporate skills in both quantitative equities and alternatives.

 

Global reach, local understanding

We invest worldwide. Our teams are locally based throughout Asia Pacific Region, investing in the markets and regions where they are. This gives us an understanding of global markets from the local level upwards.

Our teams champion original thinking and knowledge, and we base our investment decisions solely on our own research.

We're large enough to cover the world's financial markets; but our teams' focused approach allows us to keep a close eye on each and every portfolio we manage.

 

Applied Academic Focus

We embrace financial theory as the foundation of our business.

The research and critical thinking that underlies our culture and investment philosophy originates from the firm’s founding partners. Our founders met in the Ph.D. program at the University before leaving academia to apply financial theory to quantitative research at the biggest investment bank.

 

Throughout Byron Stafford’s halls, you will find accomplished academics, many of whom maintain their affiliations with the world’s leading universities. More than one-third of our employees hold advanced degrees, including more than 40 who have earned Ph. Ds.

Byron Stafford’s research is regularly published in leading journals and has garnered many awards and recognition.

We encourage others in the academic community to contribute to the field of financial research through our Byron Stafford Insight Award. The annual award honors the most important unpublished paper that provides significant investment insights and original approaches to the real-world challenges that investors face. We are also a proud sponsor of Business School Finance Graduate Award, which each year recognizes the most promising Ph.D. graduates in financial economics around the world whose research carries the greatest potential impact.

We opened The Byron Stafford Exchange Project, a tiered classroom within our headquarters for educational programs. The Byron Stafford Exchange Project is an extension of our academic history and testament to the importance we place on the ongoing pursuit of knowledge.
