VJK Finance Company Limited seeks to expand its network and equity exposure regionally and internationally through participation in private equity funds, both at the platform level and the fund level. Partnership positions are undertaken with renowned fund managers (regional and international) with proven track records of sourcing attractive opportunities and executing profitable exits.
Such approach provides VJK Finance Company Limited with an indirect, risk-mitigated exposure to the various portfolio investments underlying such funds.
Incremental benefits of such approach include potential advisory mandates and additional flow of structured credit financing opportunities for portfolio companies.
On the equity co-investment side, and capitalizing on the fund manager’s expertise, we seek to co-invest smaller equity tickets directly into the target, with the aim of achieving attractive exit multiples by way of trade sales or IPO’s.
The Principal Investments Division also encapsulates the group’s direct equity investments in associates which the team monitors closely as well as the under development greenfield industrial ventures.
