The Asia-Pacific region hosts many of the fastest growing economies in the world. Companies based in the region have strong demand for equity and credit (loans) to finance their growth and expansion plans.
Our private equity investment focuses on Australia and New Zealand. Macroeconomic conditions in these countries are conducive to private equity investment. This creates an opportunity for private equity and venture capital fund managers to generate attractive returns.
Our private credit investment focuses on the Asia-pacific region, including Australia and New Zealand. Generally speaking, private debt markets in the region are less developed than in North America or Europe and the supply of credit to companies (in particular, smaller or private companies) is limited. The restricted supply of loan financing creates conditions for arrangers and providers of credit to extract attractive terms and conditions from companies.
We invest in small and mid-sized Australian and New Zealand private companies, through and alongside a select group of private equity funds.
We invest directly in private companies alongside a private equity fund (a co-investment) and purchase interests in private equity funds at initial fund raising (a primary investment). Our funds also purchase interests in private equity funds from existing investors at a later date (a secondary investment). The investment strategy is control oriented, that is, focusing on buyouts and growth capital investments, with venture capital investments only considered on an opportunistic basis.
We invest in senior, secured loans to small and mid-sized companies located in the Asia-Pacific, through and alongside a select group of direct lending funds.
We invest by purchasing interests in direct lending funds at initial fund raising (a primary investment) and participating in loans to companies along-side a direct lending fund (a co-investment). We may also (opportunistically) purchase interests in direct lending funds from existing investors at a later date (a secondary investment). The investment strategy focuses on performing loans which are senior, secured and shorter duration.
We provide bespoke advice on private markets to governments and institutional investors, on a case-by-case basis.
