Sid Choraria presented his in-depth investment thesis on Venustech Group (Shenzhen: 002439) at Best Ideas 2016.

Venustech Group is a bet on structural growth of cyber-security in China as China’s cyber-security capex is a mere 1.5% of IT capex compared to 10% in U.S. Even 10% is not enough, as evidenced by center-stage discussion for Xi Jinping-Obama. Venustech is a home-grown information security company with barriers to entry, growth, and strong management.
