Regional Investment Teams
Supporting the growth of our European companies
The work of the Portfolio team, in our Asian office in Hong Kong, is a well-established part of our value creation strategy. Asia's economic development provides Cinven's portfolio companies with outstanding opportunities for the development of low-cost sourcing and sales in new and growing markets. Cinven's Portfolio team in Asia serves as a catalyst and enabler for our companies, helping them to capture these opportunities. Our team in Asia has provided knowledge and insights that have proved invaluable for new European investments, differentiating Cinven in the eyes of sellers of businesses and enhancing our reputation with management teams. In addition, the Portfolio team helps create value and improves relationships with potential acquirers to support exit strategies and is part of the Investor Relations team looking after investors in Asia.
Cinven’s office in New York provides deal origination and support to the firm’s Portfolio, Investor Relations and Capital Markets teams.
