Trustar Capital(1), a private equity affiliate of CITIC Capital Holdings Limited, invests globally in companies which are capitalizing upon the growth and productive resources of the Chinese economy. We operate in China, Japan and the U.S., and have completed over 100 investments since inception. We currently manage USD8.7​​​​ billion of committed capital.

We believe our firm is differentiated from peers in the following important ways:

Unparalleled China resources
​Because of our affiliation with CITIC Group as well as our extensive resources and experience in helping management teams formulate and execute a China strategy, we are the ideal partner to management teams and other private equity funds who are interested in accessing China for growth.

Discip​​lined approa​​ch to finding and creating value
​We pursue a value-oriented investment strategy with two main components. 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.

​Professi​​​​on​​​alism and diversity of staff
Although our roots are in China, our team includes investment professionals who hail from locations such as Japan, Singapore and the United States. Our professionals have a broad range of functional experience in private equity, investment banking, management consulting and operations. ​

​ESG and Responsible Investing
At Trustar Capital, we know that our actions matter - to our investors, our portfolio companies, and to the world we all live in. As such, we have always strived to be responsible investors since our founding. We believe integrating ESG considerations into our investment process enables us and our portfolio companies to deliver better business and social outcomes. Collectively, our firm strives to uphold these principles while leveraging our resources and experiences to help companies reach the next level.
