First, we leverage the unique insights of our organization to identify opportunities for value creation where others may not. Second, we work closely with our portfolio companies to help them maximize their full potential through market expansion and operational improvements.Professionalism and diversity of staffAlthough our roots are in China, our team includes investment professionals who hail from locations such as Japan, Singapore and the United States.
