Cathay generally acquires meaningful minority equity positions in companies with proven management, strategically valuable market positions and successful operations. Cathay provides growth capital to companies seeking to expand operations across a wide range of industries.
Domestic Middle Market
Cathay invests in privately-owned, high-growth "middle market" companies, which stand to profit from the growth of the domestic Chinese economy and the rise of the world's largest middle class.
Cathay focuses on companies operating within "proven industries" such as consumer goods and services, TMT, enabling services and healthcare and pharmaceuticals, where technology, market acceptance and execution risks are much lower than that of other sectors.
Closely Aligned Interests
Cathay develops close relationships with management and aligns incentive structures so as to ensure that both management and financial investors benefit from the successful growth and ultimate realization of value following the achievement of a capital event such as an IPO or trade sale.
