Private Investment Vehicles

From time to time, First Manhattan Co. organizes private investment vehicles and offers interests therein to investors who meet the applicable eligibility requirements of the respective vehicles.


First Manhattan Co. serves as the investment advisor to two private funds that invest in mainland China-focused, publicly-traded companies (the "Funds").  

In coordination with First Manhattan, First Beijing Investment Limited, a Hong-Kong company, serves as the sub-subadvisor to the Funds, and First Jingguang Investment Consulting (Shenzen) Co. Ltd., a mainland Chinese company, provides research services to the Funds’ advisors.  The First Beijing and First Jingguang teams are supported by the resources and operational infrastructure of First Manhattan.

Xiang “Sean” Huang, Portfolio Manager of the Funds, leads the advisory and research efforts of First Beijing and First Jingguang, respectively.  He is supported by a local team of analysts and associates who are located in Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.  Adam Schwartz, a Senior Managing Director at First Manhattan, is co-Portfolio Manager of the Funds.

Leveraging First Manhattan’s research-intensive investment philosophy, the team employs a long-term, bottom-up, value-oriented approach to identify undervalued and misunderstood companies that either derive a majority of their assets from, or maintain a majority of their assets in, mainland China. 

For more information about the Funds and to determine if you are eligible to invest in the Funds, please contact Adam Schwartz at (212) 756-3388 or
