|Hongkong-based private equity fund Gaw Capital is betting on the Southeast Asian market|
According to Herbin Koh, director and head of Venture and Growth Equity at Gaw Capital, real estate and associated industries represent a vast potential for the fund.
Koh said that around $100 million is available from Gaw Capital's Growth Equity Fund I for its deployment in Southeast Asia, cited Dealstreetasia. Last year, the fund closed around $430 million, including co-investment commitments from limited partners.
“After the acquisitions of a mixed-use development project (Empire City) through Gateway Real Estate Fund III and a mixed-use business park development using balance sheet capital in Ho Chi Minh City, Gaw Capital Partners further increased its presence in the Vietnamese market and debuted its fund management services with Gaw NP Capital Vietnam Fund I in 2015,” the fund noted on its website.
