Value Partners Group has promoted Edwin Kam to deputy chief investment officer for fixed-income investments. Kam, who joined the company in 2014, has more than 14 years’ experience in the financial industry.
He has direct portfolio management responsibility and has been working alongside Gordon Ip, the company’s chief investment officer for fixed income, over the years. Kam assumed his new role this month and continues to report to Ip.
“With his extensive knowledge of the mainland China and Asian markets, particularly in high-yield credits and private financing, Edwin has played a key role in strategic investment allocation and the portfolio construction process of the group’s fixed-income portfolios,” says Ip.
Prior to joining Value Partners, Kam was at Investec Capital Asia, where he specialized in advising listed companies on restructuring and liquidation matters, debt and equity securities issuance, as well as merger and acquisition transactions. Before that, he was an analyst at Deutsche Bank in London.
An industry-recognized credit investor, Kam was voted as one of the “The Most Astute Investors in Asian G3 Bonds in Hong Kong for 2020” by The Asset Benchmark Research. He has been ranked among The Top Astute Investors in the same category for five consecutive years since 2016.
