Our China private equity team practices an investment
strategy with several core attributes:
Leverage our competitive advantage. We seek investment opportunities
where we feel we have an advantage over the competition due to our proprietary
relationships, unique understanding of cultural and legal sensitivities, and
experience in a given industry sector.
Target strong franchises. We proactively target the strongest Chinese companies which have high barriers to entry due to established brands, distribution and/or technology.
Partner with management. A prerequisite to our investment is that we
must feel comfortable in our ability to forge a strong working relationship
with the management team of our investee companies.
Pre-identified exit. We need to have a clear plan regarding the exit
opportunities for our investments.
