Dear investors, sponsors and partners,

Several years ago, we have identified Bangladesh as a strategic market with tremendous potential due to its rapid growth, its demographic edge, its resilient, efficient and fast developing labor force, its sound monetary and fiscal discipline, and its continued strong foreign remittance. Since our initial investment in a Bangladesh power generation company almost a decadeĀ ago, we have expanded our presence in Bangladesh, and as a foreign owned firm we have been awarded the first Asset Management License to serve local investors in Bangladesh and abroad.

We have a long history of investing in frontier countries. Our founding partners applied in investment philosophy and a disciplined investment process that we plan to continue in Bangladesh today. We are known for the depth and breadth of our research. Our analysts focus on uncovering undervalued and undiscovered investment ideas for our clients by applying varied analytical approaches and by anticipating changes in companies, securities, sectors and investor sentiment. Since we take our fiduciary obligations very seriously, we have established and adopted various policies, which we believe will set new benchmarks in the investment management business in Bangladesh.

It is my distinct pleasure to lead our operations in Bangladesh. I am also very pleased by the quality, caliber and diverse background of the investment professionals we have attracted here , who will not only be dedicated to serve our investors, but also to materially contribute to our mission in Bangladesh and the broader investment community.

We look forward to working with you and serving your interests.

Sincerely,

Reaz Islam
