Our global reach

With offices in 12 countries on four continents, we have one of the most extensive geographic reaches of any private equity firm. This platform gives us not only a broad international perspective, which is important in today’s global marketplace, but also a deep understanding of local markets. We can therefore help companies expand into new territories, tap into global financial markets and apply international best practices alongside local conventions and laws.


We have been active in Asia for over 30 years, originally through an affiliated investment manager. We now have an established presence on the ground with 15 investment professionals working from offices in Hong Kong, Mumbai and Shanghai.
