STRATEGY

We invest between US$1M and US$20M per company with a focus on the Consumer-Retail, Media and Digital sectors within South-East Asia

We invest in companies which are either based, or looking to expand their business activities, in the South-East Asian region.

We invest in companies we believe we can add significant value to. This defines the foundation of our strategy.

We invest in sectors we understand well.
We have substantial experience and an extensive track record in the Consumer-Retail, Media and Digital sectors, either as key executives (CEO, CFO, COO), strategic advisors or as private equity investors.


We are disciplined in selecting our portfolio companies because we aim to provide meaningful value to each and every one of them.
We use our in-house methodology for operational excellence (relying on 7 pillars) both to screen our deal-flow and to define our “Value-Building” program roadmap once the investment has been executed. This process leads to scoring each pillar according to precise criteria that allows us to assess where the company stands, the ability of the team to scale up and its willingness to introduce changes to deliver its business plan. We only commit to investments in companies that are either “Investor Ready” now or have the ability to reach this level within a 6-month period.


We partner with elite entrepreneurs.
We support talented, passionate and ambitious entrepreneurs who have a deep understanding of their business, the willingness to bring on board pro-active investors and a genuine desire to continuously do things better.

We are hands-on investors.

It is relatively easy for great entrepreneurs to find capital; we bring much more than just capital to the entrepreneurs we partner with.

Our “Investor Readiness” scoring system allows us to identify the specific areas for improvement on each of the 7 pillars and to suggest action plans through the launch of a limited number of key workshops.


We then assist the top management teams with the execution of each workshop and the definition and monitoring of key KPIs for each department.We systematically support our companies on HR matters, whether it be recruitment matters, incentivisation programs or, more generally. staff retention strategies; this is a domain in which we have significant knowledge.


We continuously help our companies to structure themselves financially and operationally as they grow by sharing our substantial expertise across financial, M&A and corporate governance best-practices.


We help in the negotiation of key contracts with new counterparties and typically activate our broad and deep network to assist in the growth acceleration and expansion of our portfolio companies.
