Mathematics
Mathematics at YANG is a guide & culture, through the lens of which all initiatives start & finish. As a quantitative-driven operator, our decision making is rooted in mathematics: from in-house quant models to pricing of assets, from capital structures to exit strategies.
Physics
Operations of our portfolio companies are embedded in the appreciation of engineering & physics. We rely on external due diligence partners as an extension of our team to uncover and test ideas before they become successes.
Anthropology
Our assets are an integral part of their communities. Our empirical analysis is primarily local, concerned with uncovering opportunities in unconventional ways, and informs the stewardship of the portfolio assets. We need anthropological insights to make our assets future-proof, while minimizing risks and challenges to the portfolio longevity.
YANG solves for alpha by turning data into insights. This requires all: the highest volume, completeness, and analysis of data.
