Revolutionizing asset management in Asia by combining technology and portfolio management
Pollock Asset Management is a data-driven and quantitative based asset management firm strives to revolutionize asset management with technology. Our investment ranges from early stage start-ups, to bonds and tailor-made private credit products that are unique in the market. We believe technology will continue to re-shape and improve our lives. From investment decision to daily operation procedure, we strive to utilize our strong quantitative skills and programming approach to deliver promising and quality returns to our investors.
Do what is right with clear priority
Learn from history and not be afraid to admit mistakes
Foster an environment to encourage exchange of ideas, and be willing to share and experiment with "out of the box" ideas
Driven by the relative under-development in quantitative approach in Emerging Markets' credit market, we focus on their private and public credits and seek alternative investment options, using data analytics to make informed investment decision. In addition, through our venture capital arm, we invest with a gender-balanced and ESG-conscious focus which statistically proves to create additional alpha.
In the past, a lot of data was under-utilized. With the assistance of data science, we believe we can make better informed investment decision
With the help of solid infrastructure, we can minimize idiosyncratic errors and ensure first of class risk management
We never stop seeking for alternative investment options that can maximize risk-adjusted return

Pollock's advanced machine learning process and diligent risk management continue to deliver stable, uncorrelated returns in this alternative asset class.”
