The Bridge that Connects Global Investors to Asia
As deal originators, we bring to investors investment opportunities that focus on long-term, stable returns, in areas related to infrastructure, such as toll-roads, renewable energy, sustainable development.
Backed by Strong Heritage
Our journey began in 2019 as a spin-off from a fiduciary group established in the early 2000s, managing the portfolio of family offices, private and corporate trusts of European and Asian principal investors.
In June 2020, we received our license to operate as an independent Registered Fund Management Company (RFMC) regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
Depth and Breadth of Experience
We are a group of experienced investment bankers, corporate financiers, restructuring specialists, technical advisors and industry consultants, led by CEO Azrin Asmani and Executive Director Vicky Ti – our RFMC license-holders.
We are skilled in connecting capital to projects in Asia including those that have been overlooked by global investors due to many reasons, both quantifiable and non-quantifiable.
Our 3-Pronged Approach
To bridge global investors to Asia, we adopt a 3-pronged approach: (a) an integrated capital solutioning strategy; (b) consulting & advisory and principal investing that extracts, enhances and optimizes the value of the target asset; and (c) an exit strategy through global investors / IPO.
Part of OUR MISSION
Navigating the world, in our view, is becoming far more complex and uncertain, intensified by the trade tension between the U.S. and China, the American protectionist agenda, and the Chinese making their global presence felt through their OBOR initiative. Information is democratised through social media and digitalisation. The world is divided and views are fragmented.
While Asia continues to be the destination of choice for investors, reflected by the growing FDI into the region, piloting a path can be tricky. Economies such as the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and Sri Lanka are facing a conundrum – choose the wrong side, face the undesired consequences.
Our role is to decipher these regional nuances for our investors – what is the unspoken need, that subtle desire – to enable us to extract the risk-return premium for investing in Asia. We see ourselves as the bridge that connects global investors to Asia.
