Point Hope is a dedicated Buyout Fund focusing on mid-sized businesses in Southeast Asia and South Korea. We are one of the most disciplined buyout funds, adhering to a strict regime of control-only investments with high Sharpe ratios for the last 14 years. We are also one of the most experienced private equity teams in Asia with 23 continuous years of unbroken track record.

Our team members helped pioneer negative control investments in Asia in 1991 and large classical leveraged buyouts in Asia during the Asian Financial Crisis in 2000. Point Hope team members are at the forefront of buyout innovations in Asia and led the first public-to-private leveraged buyout by a financial sponsor in Singapore and Southeast Asia, the first pre-packaged leveraged buyout in South Korea and one of the first telecom towers investments in Asia.

Today, we make investment decisions with the benefit of the hindsight, experience and intuition forged through disciplined control-oriented investing through five cycles of economic crises over the last two decades. Our intimate knowledge of Asia buyouts and proven track record of superior returns with minimum variance have earned us the trust and respect of sophisticated global investors including family offices, university endowments, pension funds and financial institutions.

Point Hope is always looking ahead and we are proud to be one of the first private equity funds in Asia to adopt an integrated philanthropy programme focusing on education, healthcare and humanitarian aid.
