We focus more on process and people than past performance. We always strive to understand a manager’s performance drivers. Was it skill or luck? Is it sustainable going forward?
Our investment process has always been “play defense first”. We strive to preserve capital by focusing on individual manager’s risks as well as risks on the overall portfolio level. Effective diversification is key.
We have strong sourcing capabilities for alternative investments in the US and Asia. We understand Asian managers better and build closer relationships because of our proficiency in Mandarin and knowledge of Asian culture.
Our engineering background allows us to analyze and interpret data and emerge with real insights. We present our findings in a clear and conclusive manner and make smart decisions based on it.
KPS Advisors LLC is an independent outsourced investment advisory firm based in NYC.
We work closely with High Net Worth Individuals and Single Family Offices and provide them with thoughtful, curated advice on US and Asia hedge funds so that they can allocate their time and capital more effectively.
KPS Advisors LLC was founded in 2014 to advise a NYC based single family office on their existing investment portfolios.
KP had spent a major portion of his investment career working with family office and high net worth investors. Prior to founding KPS Advisors LLC, KP worked as a Director at Saguenay Strathmore Capital and was focused on manager sourcing, investment due diligence, risk analysis and risk management. Over time, KP’s professional network grew larger and included family office and institutional investors. When a NYC based single family office decided to hire him, KP started his own advisory firm.
KP completed two summer internships at the Greenwich Roundtable and Indian Harbor which provided him a strong head start for his investment career. Prior to an investment career, KP had worked as a chemical engineer at ABB Lummus Global in New Jersey (US) and at Kellogg Brown and Root in Singapore from 2000-2005. After he decided to make a career switch into finance, KP invested his savings and successfully raised money within one year to fully self-sponsor his graduate school program at Columbia University in NYC.
KP earned a MSc Operations Research from Columbia University in 2006. He attended the National University of Singapore and earned a Bachelors in Chemical Engineering in 2000. He is a CAIA charter holder since Mar 2009.
KP also served in the Singapore Armed Forces for 2.5 years as a Combat Engineer. KP was born and raised in Singapore and is fluent in both English and Mandarin. Currently, KP resides in Brooklyn with his rescue Schnoodle Myles.
