Asia Alpha Management (A): Tackling a Volatile Market

Case Solution

Philip Zerrillo, Matthew Dearth
Singapore Management University ()

The case occurred in April 2018 when Performance Asia Alpha Management Pvt. Limited. (AAM), a fictitious hedge fund, began to lag behind at the beginning of the year. AAM co-founder and chief investment officer Royston Lim is struggling to decide what to do with three large underperforming positions in his portfolio. Each of these positions is designed to illustrate the real impact of behavioral bias in investment management. Case (A) provides background information on the company and detailed information on all three positions. After a class discussion on Case (A) to decide what Lim should do, Case (B) describes what actually happened. The concept of behavioral bias is introduced through the subsequent discussion of why Lim made the decisions that he did.
