Our Firm

We are proud to be one of the largest independent private equity firms in Asia

Founded in Hong Kong in 1997, we’re still dedicated to the region in which we were established, with a total committed capital of over US$10 billion.

We add value by working hand-in-hand with our portfolio companies, providing capital for expansion, recapitalization, or acquisitions, in order to grow their business for the long-term.

Drawing on 19 years of experience throughout multiple economic cycles, our investment philosophy is deeply rooted in the principles of capital preservation: diversified portfolios; margin of safety in pricing; and downside protection to limit losses.

As a result, our returns have significantly outperformed public markets in Asia, by an average of 11% compounded by annum.

Courage and entrepreneurial spirit

We are committed to social responsibility as a core component of our investment process.

We work with companies that operate in a lawful, transparent and sustainable manner, without violating human rights or environmental guidelines. We actively work with our portfolio companies to enhance corporate governance.

Environmental, Social and Governance considerations are central to our investment process, and if applicable, included in investment documentation from concept paper through to final investment recommendation.

Our Philanthropy Committee supports charitable organizations in our local communities, giving our teams the opportunity to give back to the people and places in which we live and work.
