Launch of the ASEAN China Investment Fund

 

 

The ASEAN China Investment Fund is a private equity fund that provides capital for small and medium sized enterprises located within ASEAN and the People’s Republic of China.  The Swiss Government, the Asian Development Bank and United Overseas Bank are among the sponsors/investors of this fund.

 

 

The ASEAN China Investment Fund (the”Fund”) will focus on small and medium sized enterprises in the ASEAN/China region that have attractive growth prospects and are engaged in intra-regional and inter-regional trade or investment activites.

 

The Fund aims to raise capital commitments totalling US$ 125 million.  A first closing was realized in January this year at US$ 60 million.  The initial core investors include the Asian Development Bank, the Swiss Government represented by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs, the French development finance institution Proparco, the Japan Asia Investment Company, and the United Overseas Bank of Singapore.  An additional US$ 15 million has been committed by China Development Bank subject to final regulatory approval.

 

The Fund is structured as a closed-end limited partnership and has a charter life of eight years, with an option for two one-year extensions.  The Fund is targeted at high growth companies from various sectors, such as automotive parts, electronics, distribution, transport, light manufacturing and information technology.  The investments will generally be held by the Fund for three to five years.  By the end of the Fund’s life, all investments are expected to be liquidated and the capital, including returns, distributed to the investors.

 

UOB Capital Partners LLC, a special purposes company, is the General Partner of the Fund and is responsible for the management of the Fund.  The General Partner has engaged UOB Venture Management Ltd. (UOBVM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of UOB Group in Singapore, to provide investment advisory services to the Fund.

 

Further information will be available at the press conference on March 19, 11.30 at the Nai Lert Park Hotel, Bangkok.
