Investing in Asia’s Most Vibrant & Dynamic Growth Segment
Mid-market Focus, Secular Trends Driven
The mid-market segment is a substantial economic growth contributor in many Asian economies, and is rich with opportunities for private capital investment and significant value creation.
This is where we seek to provide transformational growth capital to established businesses that are at an inflection point in their development, and in sectors that are beneficiaries of the key secular trends shaping the Asian private capital investment landscape.

- Regional businesses with pan-Asia attributes,
