Private Equity


Investing profitably in Vietnam is not easy! Our team works pro-actively and transparently for our limited partners to deploy equity capital in the country. In order to do this, we spend time on-the-ground to identify the right investment opportunities, approach the management and owners in a discreet and culturally sensitive manner and secure the required due diligence information from the business at an early stage to be able to focus on and negotiate the most promising deals.

Our investment process is based on best practice international private equity guidelines and we are focused on full alignment with the select promoters that we decide to back.

While we source opportunities directly and currently have a strong pipeline of deals, we always welcome introductions by intermediaries.
