We are active investors in our area of focus – principally service-based businesses including food service and processing and leisure related property.
We currently seek scalable relationships with experienced agribusiness people in Australia growing with the China demand and Food Safety story.
My experience in one of the first China funds began around 1990 as Managing Director of a Hong Kong asset management company.
