Financial Express (FE) has rated Mansfield Mok ‘FE Alpha Manager’ for his exceptional track record, including investment management of the New Capital China Equity Fund. Mansfield is one of 181 managers recognised by FE as the top 10% of managers with funds registered in the UK. In the China/Greater China sector, Mansfield is one of only two managers with this rating. The FE rating is based on manager track record and three key components: risk-adjusted alpha generation; consistency of outperformance versus the benchmark; and outperformance in rising and falling markets. The New Capital China Equity Fund has beaten its benchmark, the MSCI China Index, by 28% since its inception in August 2012, and delivered a total return of 51.8% over the same period.

Hong Kong-based Mansfield, who has over 20 years of investment experience, joined EFG Asset Management (EFGAM) in 2012 to launch the New Capital China Equity Fund. He previously co-managed the $1.5 billion GAM Star China Equity Fund, which outperformed the MSCI China Index by over 72% during his five year tenure at the firm. In 2011, Mansfield was awarded ‘Best Fund Manager Over 3 Years’ and ‘Best Equity China Fund Over 3 Years’ by Professional Adviser and Lipper respectively.

Moz Afzal, Chief Investment Officer, EFGAM: “We are delighted that Mansfield has been recognised for his exceptional performance and expertise in this asset class. The exemplary performance of the New Capital China Equity Fund is the result of strong long-term macroeconomic fundamentals and Mansfield’s skill in selecting great companies. We believe the strategy will continue to be a great source of value for our clients.”

Mansfield Mok, Senior Portfolio Manager, New Capital China Equity Fund: “I am very happy to receive this prestigious award. China could easily be the leading economic superpower in the next five to 10 years but is hugely underrepresented in investors’ portfolios. Drawing on more than 20 years of investment experience in Asia, I look forward to building on our proven track record and continuing to deliver robust returns.”
