Investment Approach

Focusing on the Middle Market in Asia

  • Olympus Capital Asia targets mid-sized investments (from $30 million to $200 million+).
  • Our portfolio companies range in size but are generally between $100 million and $2 billion in revenues. 

Leveraging Our Sector Expertise and Regional Platform

  • While our investment mandate is broad, we focus on industries where we have deep experience, relationships and a successful investment track record: 

         -        Agribusiness & Resources

         -        Financial & Business Services

         -        Environmental & Clean Energy

Over our history, we have deployed a majority of our capital into these three industry verticals. 

  • Our industry expertise, leveraged across our regional Asia platform, allows us to create a differentiated value proposition for potential target companies.   We have deep expertise in our core sectors, gained from nearly two decades of private equity investing experience. 
  • We have local teams and Senior Advisors including industry specialists in China, India, Japan and South Korea, enabling us to source deals, complete due diligence and execute post-investment business plans on a local level. 
  • We are one of a handful of independent middle market private equity managers in Asia that operates successfully on an integrated, regional basis with a long and successful track record of working with management teams to build companies.

  • Olympus Capital Asia is committed to adding value to our investments by actively working alongside our portfolio companies as their partner and helping them to secure long-term, sustainable growth.  Our long-term focus on our key industry sectors allows us to work closely with prospective management teams and partners to identify and address their unique needs.
  • Olympus senior partners spend a significant amount of time post-investment working closely with the management of our portfolio companies to assist them in achieving their goals.  We have structured our business to ensure that our experienced senior partners have the time to devote to working with our portfolio companies.  We purposely limit the number of Boards on which each of our partners will participate.

For Potential Portfolio Companies 

We welcome inquires from and introductions to prospective portfolio companies that fit our investment criteria. We are happy to facilitate discussions between potential business partners and CEOs and owners with whom we have worked.  We hold confidentiality in the highest regard.  Please contact us.

"Olympus Capital was one of the founding investors of Tokyo-based Mediatti Communications Inc. From the beginning, they were actively involved in the company's strategic development and M&A activities as Mediatti gained stature as a leading multisystem operator (MSO) platform. They also brought in Liberty Global International as an important strategic partner who helped bring international best practices to the company. I found Olympus Capital's team to be extremely professional and highly adaptable at operating in a multi-cultural environment, something that's critical in a very local business such as ours."
