"I was impressed with YFM's investment mindset - they were always reassuringly calm during turbulent times, be that at a macro-level during the recent global pandemic, or at the localised company-level when perhaps a quarter did not quite go to plan. Their investment maturity combined with a long-term growth outlook was really refreshing. For me YFM excelled at understanding what a high-performing team looked like and advised accordingly throughout our growth journey."
