The investment objective of KCG is to maximise the total return through capital appreciation consistent with reasonable risk by primarily investing into shares listed on the stock exchange in Hong Kong which mostly have a China-related element or concept. For this purpose, KCG will mainly invest in these HK listed companies having a China-related concept, good corporate governance, big Market Cap and profit of growing rapidly.

The assets not invested in securities may be retained as cash or may be invested in money-market instruments, including, without limitation, treasury notes and bills, certificates of deposits. KCG adopts a systematic stock selection approach in combination with top down Market analysis. If the market is in uptrend, the portfolio will hold more equities and less cash positions. However, when the market is in downtrend, the portfolio will reduce equity holding and increase cash positions.

KCG aims at achieving capital appreciation in the medium term.
