BRKets
Does anyone remember the spinoff group from Wallstraits called BRKets? I remember meeting some of the guys at the Singapore Cricket Club in 2004. I did a presentation analysing the two instant coffee companies (Super and Food Empire) then.

Was wondering whatever happened to them, and if any of them are active here?

I remember attending one session at the club. During that session, we spoke and discussed Sunray, a CN medical specialising women cancer diagnostics.

Those were the days .... Smile

Google and found the following link...

I think I had some memories of the proposed meetings.

But, I had never attended any meeting. Tongue

RE: BRKets
Just curious... after close to 10 years, what's the returns like for the group (or individually)? Also, from the link provided by 'yeokiwi', under the tab 'About', para 3,

Further the BRKets Group works closely with fund managers who between them control funds of over US$ 350 million. This enables the Group to attract more funds towards investment in companies where members of the group have vested interests based on detailed research & analysis.

If you find an under-valued stock, why'd you want to 'attract more funds' to invest in it? So that the value can be realised faster and the group members can take profit? If so, doesn't quite seem to gel with BRK + Charlie Munger approach...Huh

I'm guessing the approach as a retail investor and a substantial stakeholder is different. When you have a large stake, you can take a controlling stake in the company and influence management decisions.
