About Yee
Yee S. Ong, CFA is the founder and Senior Portfolio Manager of YSO Capital Management, LLC. Mr. Ong has more than eleven years of professional experience in the financial industry through Charles Schwab, Washington Mutual Financial Services, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, and YSO Capital Management. Moreover, he has over 18 years of experience as a private investor, having begun investing his own capital in 1993 when he first worked at Charles Schwab. Mr. Ong has successfully invested through the great bull market of the twentieth century, the collapse of the dot-coms at the turn of the century, the great commodities bull market, the recent subprime crisis, and the surge of the Chinese economy.

After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of California at Berkeley, he received the Chartered Financial Analyst accreditation from the CFA Institute. In addition, he was the co-founder of  technology firm, GLO Comp. Inc., and sports equipment company, Majassin Inc., from 1997 to 2000. Being the principal of companies allows him to understand the critical factors that make a business successful and is an attribute rare among money managers. With his successful business experiences, Mr. Ong invests with the mindset of a business owner and not merely a trader. He is also a member of the CFA Society of San Francisco.

Mr. Ong has achieved extraordinary returns at YSO Capital Management since its inception at the end of 2004. His market insights, prudent judgment, and exceptional skills in money management have helped him significantly outperform the market while keeping risk to a minimal level. Since the establishment of the YSO Equity Composite until the end of 2010, the fund earned 35.49% (before management fee) while the S&P 500 Total Return Index gained 4.31% during the same period. It is rare for any money manager to achieve the risk adjusted performance of Mr. Ong.
