Our approach

  • An experienced multicultural team

    ​​Our Chinese development capital team combines the experience of Group specialists with the expertise of local investment advisors based in Shanghai. Our base in China is essential to investing in the local entrepreneurial fabric and to overcoming cultural differences.

  • A proven SME investment strategy

    ​​​​The team has invested in Chinese companies since 2008. Its strategy is similar to the one used for European SMEs: strong involvement in the companies to support accelerating growth and to help them reach the highest international standards. The goal is to ensure the emergence of companies which are leaders in their markets and ideally positioned for an initial public offering or acquisition.

  • An emphasis on profitable sectors focused on domestic growth

    ​​Our funds focus on profitable, high-growth Chinese SMEs in dynamic niche sectors focused on the domestic market: accessible luxury brands, new technologies, energy/cleantech, industries and services for agriculture. They include 15 diversified investments well-balanced from a sector standpoint.​
