What does Ericsenz Capital offer beyond capital?
Long-term value appreciation comes from the early identification of potential growth and the possibility of a catalyst on the horizon that will impact the company or industry sector directly. Leveraging on 100 years of collective experience, Ericsenz Capital has deep knowledge of a particular industry segment which enables us to uncover these change elements prior to general market knowledge and buy in (or sell off) specific companies that will benefit (or suffer) from the action to come.
For investors’, they are able to leverage our expertise to spot and participate in investment opportunities.
We are able to assist and drive our investee companies through their transformational change. We believe in collaborative participation by taking an active role in strategic planning with the management team.
In some cases, we acquire controlling interests or minority positions with influence where we can best utilise our expertise. We also provide in-house operational resource to participate at a deeper level alongside with the management team.
What is special about Ericsenz Capital compared with other private equity companies?
Asia is still a highly relationship-driven region which is built on years of networking and business alliance. With Ericsenz Capital’s network of valuable commercial, strategic, investment, media, and government partners in Asia including Asean, Greater China and Middle East, the opportunity to bridge the gap between the investors with investments have never been greater.
