Established in 2015, Equicap Asia is an infrastructure asset manager deploying equity capital in impact businesses in emerging economies. We provide equity and structured credit to develop businesses. We invest in pre-financial close stage of projects and guide through the project execution phase, until commercial operations.
Alongside early stage investments, we consider investment opportunities in special situations like under-performing companies, stress like situations and construction distress. All of our existing investments under management are in controlling equity positions.
As an investment manager and developer on the ground, we have enabled investments in infrastructure projects across South Asia and are keen to expand Equicap presence across South and South East Asia.
Both new and existing infrastructure across energy, transport, waste management and social sectors with the following characteristics are of our primary interest.
– Must create value for people & society.
– Must bring predictable & stable returns.
– Must have a long-term perspective.
Every economy depends on growth in the infrastructure sector to achieve its national goals and provide an improved quality of life to its citizens. This gap of infrastructure is acutely felt in developing economies, especially South and South East Asian countries with the large under-served population.
Since our business has a direct impact in these economies – we choose to make a difference. By putting ESG factors and Climate Change focus at the heart of what we do; we create stable, long-term financial returns for our clients as well as sustainable returns for our people, communities, and the wider world.
At Equicap Asia, we invest our own capital in early-stage infrastructure projects and actively manage our assets from developing the projects in the pre-financial close period to the construction and operations phase. We also partner to execute the growth strategies, cost competitiveness and overall profitability with all critical strategic, financial, and operational guidance and leadership.
Key considerations for our investment are:
We have set high ethical standards to follow. Our Code of Conduct policy guides our interests and efforts, and Equcap’s commitment to follow principles of UN Global Compact and UN Principles for Responsible Investing reaffirm our commitment to sustainability.
We make sincere efforts to ensure our businesses are compliant with IFC Performance Standards.
