Fund Focused on Emerging Asia Middle Market

  • This dynamic region is expected to play a leading
    global economic role
  • Much of developed world faces significant
    long-term crises, including massive debt, steep
    budget deficits, and structural unemployment

Middle Market
  • Typically, greater revenue and earnings
    acceleration than large cap companies
  • However, much less access to capital, providing
    investment opportunities for hands-on investors
    like Tembusu

Significant Minority Investments
  • Tembusu invests with proven entrepreneurs who
    typically have significant personal stakes in
    their companies
  • We target a 20 - 30 ownership stake and board
  • Commit internal resources towards improving the
    finance and operations of our portfolio companies
    as required

Capitalize on Strong Growth in Asia
  • Continued strong growth from Asian economies
    particularly in our focused areas of China,
    India, and South East Asia
  • Strong emerging middle class driving domestic
  • Rapid urbanization with significant
    infrastructure building
