Capitalist Exploits Review: We tried it, here’s what happened (Dec 2022)
Capitalist Exploits is an investing newsletter that’s being spoken about a lot in 2022.
But should you believe the hype?
At Asia Markets, we decided to try the service ourselves to find out.
Below we explain why it’s become the only paid service we recommend.

What is Capitalist Exploits?
Firstly, Capitalist Exploits is not your traditional investing resource.
And that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The information provided is well-researched, insightful and comprehensive, but at times presented in… let’s say… a ‘unique’ way.
There is a lot of humour, a lot of sarcasm, and a lot of political commentary.
Some readers will like that, some won’t.
Here at Asia Markets, we didn’t mind that too much, in fact we found that most of it was quite entertaining.
And even if we didn’t like it, much can be forgiven if the investment ideas and stock picks are on the money.
Let’s face it, if you’re reading this, you probably just want to know whether Capitalist Exploits can help you become a better (and more successful) investor.
To hear our views on that, read on…
Who runs Capitalist Exploits?
In the case of Capitalist Exploits, the team consists of two key figures:
Chris MacIntosh is a highly successful hedge fund manager with a track record of generating impressive returns for his investors. Prior to starting hedge fund Glenorchy Capital in 2016, MacIntosh worked at several top firms including JPMorgan Chase.
He has extensive experience in the finance industry, with a deep expertise in investing, venture capital and private equity.
His speciality is executing strategies to achieve the asymmetric payoffs for any given thesis, and works with Chris in identifying opportunities across the world’s different markets and asset classes, and figuring out how best to execute them.

ROAD TEST: What we think
It has only been a short period of time, but as you’ll see, it’s so far so good for the investment side of things.
We also enjoy having access to the portfolios of the hedge fund managers so that, if we wish, we can align our own investments to match theirs.
Below is how a follower of their ‘Asymmetric Gains Portfolio’ is performing compared against a world stock index:
It should be noted that this is not an accurate reflection of the performance of ideas published in the Insider Newsletter, as Capitalist Exploits does not track that data (and says it has no reason to).
It is also not a suggestion you would be able to track that performance if you joined.
Instead, the charts aim to illustrate that even in very challenging market conditions, their investment theses and strategy has served their customers well.
At Asia Markets, our inbox is flooded with requests from investment newsletter publishers asking us to promote their service.
Most are blatant scams, some are legitimate, but almost all we reject because they simply don’t provide our readers enough value.
Capitalist Exploits, however, is different.
Published by real Hedge Fund managers, it provides unrivalled market insights, real-time analysis and, most importantly, actionable investment ideas.
What we like about Capitalist Exploits, is that our readers can sign-up almost completely risk free.
For $1, you will be allowed 30 days access to see whether the ‘Insider Newsletter’ is for you.
That means you will be shown Chris MacIntosh’s ‘Big Five’ stock pics, as well as unique research and guidance on how to position your capital.
If you feel like the service doesn’t provide value, then you can cancel before you’re charged for the following month.
