About Us

Founded in 2021, OxCap brings together a team of experienced emerging market investors led by Dr. Joseph Lai.
Dr. Lai is joined by fellow Principals Douglas Huey and Alan Zhang, and analysts Kate Goodwin and Sid Mehta. The team collectively have over 50 years’ experience investing in emerging market equities.

OxCap’s investment approach is to identify the immense positive changes taking place in emerging markets and to find companies that benefit from those trends that are trading at a discount to OxCap’s assessment of intrinsic value.

“I started Ox Capital Management with a mission to deliver stellar returns for our investors. I have had the privilege and responsibility to manage money for clients for over 17 years investing in emerging markets. I believe now more than ever that emerging markets are unusually undervalued.”

Our Name

Oxen are the hard workers in the background, intelligent and reliable, but never demanding praise.

In the Chinese Zodiac, 2021 is the year of the Ox. Coincidentally, several of our team members were born in that Zodiac year. For us, the name evokes “a sense of service”. The ox is a hard-working helper, reliable and trustworthy. This reflects our team’s commitment to being a sensible and intelligent custodian of our clients’ capital.
