Advent-Oriental: Peers Honor Post

The Chief Economist of Advent-Oriental Asset Management, Dr Owen Post Ph.D was honored by his peers

PRLog - Jan. 1, 2010 - The Chief Economist of Advent-Oriental Asset Management, Dr Owen Post Ph.D was honored by his peers at a year end dinner at a Shanghai hotel on 28 December. The man known as “Post the Profits” was voted “Man of the year” by the local association of private equity specialists and analysts for his outstanding work and insight in the private equity field.

On hand to receive the award (Dr Post is currently holidaying in the UK with his family) was Advent-Oriental Chairman, David St John-Morris. For the benefit of the audience, he recalled that Post had taken a great deal of criticism for holding Advent-Oriental to a traditional conservative approach to wealth management and for his aggressive leadership style which led the Asset Management firm through the start of the financial crisis in 2007. He commented that, “Amongst many of the attributes and qualities that Owen possesses, the one that really shines through is that he is endowed with a healthy dollop of good old fashioned common sense!”

retirement in comfort and security and so, Advent-Oriental Asset
Management was born.

Upon the death of Sir John in 1899, the company decided to open
its doors to servicemen and civilians alike whilst continuing to
honor Sir John’s basic tenet of “Wisdom and Prudence” and in
1962 moved operations to Singapore because of the political
situation that was developing in Burma.

Two further moves were to follow; Hong Kong Island in 1966
and finally, Shanghai in 2004 where our center of operations is
now located.

The focus since 1991 has been on the now fashionable “green”
technology sector in sourcing, researching and identifying
opportunities in companies that are either developing, producing
or manufacturing alternative energy solutions, ecologically
friendly waste management & disposal systems– and their
