About Us - Background
Leading mid-market infrastructure private equity investment manager
CapAsia is a private equity firm investing in the infrastructure sectors in Southeast Asia and Central Asia. Founded in 2006, we have 14 investment professionals and offices in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, and Bangkok. We currently manage $400 million in assets under management across three funds. CapAsia is majority owned by The Rohatyn Group (TRG), a private investment firm focused on emerging markets, with the CIMB Group as a significant minority shareholder. CapAsia was originally established as a joint venture between Malaysia’s CIMB Group and South Africa’s Standard Bank.
We operate as one firm across our various offices and geographic coverage areas. Our team offers a combination of international private equity and principal investment experience, in-depth local industry knowledge with a strong commitment to teamwork and information sharing across our offices.
Our first fund, The South East Asian Strategic Assets Fund was launched in 2006, and in 2009, we expanded our investment scope by securing the management of the Islamic Infrastructure Fund, a joint initiative backed by the Asian Development Bank and the Islamic Development Bank, as well as Babcock & Brown’s Asia Infrastructure Fund. CapAsia has successfully raised $500 million across the three funds. We currently have one fund in the market, the CapAsia ASEAN Infrastructure Fund III (2012 vintage), which has a $350 million target size.
