Rogers Investment Advisors K.K. is part of the award-winning Wolver Hill group of companies, an Asia-focused alternative investment asset management and advisory group established by Edward J. Rogers in 2006. With offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo, the group has used its local presence to establish best-in-class investment, operations and risk due diligence processes that have been used to create funds that have consistently yielded superior portfolio performance for clients. The group is positioned to capitalize on the growing Asia-focused fund industry through its local presence, global footprint and historical success in seeding and growing Asian financial services businesses.
Our primary goals are to identify and solve clients’ Asian investment problems. Problems range from sourcing superior Asian investment products to raising Asian capital
We have created access to “Best in Class” local and Asia-focused Private Equity and Hedge Fund investment opportunities across multiple, non-correlated strategies and asset classes. We have protected client assets in market downturns while creating significant positive returns during market rallies
We create superior investment results by conducting exhaustive local onsite due diligence prior to investment, complemented by rigorous post-investment oversight
We build the best platform for emerging managers in Asia by providing a top tier support infrastructure including control, compliance and technology, thereby allowing managers to focus on executing their strategies. We can also assist in raising institutional capital through our licensed, onshore entities in Japan and Hong Kong.
Our Research capabilities solve four problems for investors:
Asia is not a 14 hour flight away for us. From our offices in Tokyo and Hong Kong we have real-time monitoring and interaction with our Asian managers and investments.
If you don’t know Asian languages, cultural or business norms, you are at a significant disadvantage as an investor. We are multi-lingual and multi-cultural, giving us a linguistic and cultural arbitrage opportunity in Asia. Many competitors also cannot conduct investment, operations or business due diligence in Japanese, Mandarin and Cantonese – giving us a significant, ongoing informational advantage.
Asia currently represents 25% of the world's GDP and it's been growing at the fastest rate of any region in the world over the past 50 years. Even so, most US and European investors have failed to directly participate in this incredible growth story. Asian investments represent far too small an allocation in their portfolios. With our local presence, having conquered the problems of "too far" and "too foreign", we are able to open the doors to Asian opportunities.
Our Asian offices create significant cost advantages. Thanks to our offices in Hong Kong and Tokyo, our onsite due diligence visits are far cheaper for us than for those who have to travel to the region. This allows us to conduct many more onsite visits, and creates superior research information and returns.
