Global Capital, Funds and FDIMobilising International Finance and Private Capital
Mobilising International Finance
Through our delivery partners such as development finance institutions, we broaden your access to international capital pools, across a range of sophisticated financial instruments. Debt capital mobilisation includes trade finance, project finance, and bonds (corporate or sovereign).
Depending on the ticket size, equity funding may come from private investors, family offices, private equity funds, or crowdfunding.

FDI and Investment Promotion
We provide solutions for attracting Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) and offer a review of a country’s branding, from a private sector perspective, so to enhance the overall investment climate of a country.
We provide expertise on Sovereign Wealth Funds and on asset management on both private and public sectors.
Sovereign Wealth Funds
We are commencing a practice area in terms of studying the historical development and evolution of Asia’s Sovereign Wealth funds (SWF). In doing so, we hope to distill practical lessons for other emerging countries embarking on or considering the establishment of SWFs. For example, we have completed a paper on Temasek holdings, focusing on its raison d’etre for Singapore and its evolution since 1974.
The rising middle class in emerging markets will lead to an explosion in terms of assets under management by the pension and savings funds of emerging countries. We are currently studying Singapore’s “pension fund” model and distilling lessons for other countries in terms of how Singapore was able to leverage its pension fund (known as the Central Provident fund) to provide its citizens with affordable housing, healthcare, and education.
