Our strategy is to identify high quality management teams and capitalize on specific market opportunities in the fastest growing segments of these emerging markets.
Our funds invest $10 million to $40 million in mid-cap private companies, where additional capital, best business practices, management recruitment, and financial engineering provide a basis for significant capital appreciation.
Our funds focus on expansion and buy-out opportunities in core industries serving the emerging middle class, including information technology, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), manufacturing, financial services and select other sectors.
- In the case of expansion opportunities, we identify either industry leaders in fast growing sectors, or younger companies in sectors with consolidation potential
- In the case of buy-out opportunities, we identify companies in more mature industries with established revenues and unrealized profit potential
Our funds generally acquire stakes that enable us to control or to influence strategy and key operating decisions of portfolio companies through corporate governance mechanisms. For larger investment opportunities, we may co-invest with our limited partners or syndicate the investment opportunity to other like-minded investors in the region.
Our funds seek to invest in companies with the potential to achieve liquidity within 3 to 5 years through either a trade sale or an initial public offering.
