Asia Alternatives Management LLC (“Asia Alternatives” or the “Firm”) was formed in 2006 by a team of seasoned Asian professionals to provide investors with a solution to the challenge of capturing the compelling opportunity for private equity investing in Asia. With its research, investment and client service infrastructure solely dedicated to Asia fund private equity investments, Asia Alternatives seeks to be the “partner of choice” for global institutional investors who desire to participate in the diverse and fast growing Asian private equity investment markets.

Asia Alternatives is a solution platform dedicated to helping institutional investors make fund investments primarily in private equity across Asia. As of December 31, 2019, the Firm currently manages over $11.8 billion of regulatory assets under management, comprised of Asia Alternatives Capital Partners, LP ($515 million) (together with its parallel funds and feeder funds, “AACP I” or “Fund I”), Asia Alternatives Capital Partners II, LP ($950 million) (together with its parallel funds, feeder funds and AIV’s, “AACP II” or “Fund II”), Asia Alternatives Capital Partners III, LP ($908 million) (together with its parallel funds, feeder funds and AIV’s, “AACP III” or “Fund III”), Asia Alternatives Capital Partners IV, LP (together with its parallel funds, feeder funds, sleeve fund and AIV’s, “AACP IV” or “Fund IV”) ($1 billion),  Asia Alternatives Capital Partners V, LP along with its parallel fund, Asia Alternatives Capital Partners V (ERISA), LP ($1.515 billion), a co-investment program and separate accounts.

A core part of Asia Alternatives’ business model is a commitment to have an open, transparent working partnership with the Fund’s Limited Partners (the “Investors” or “LPs”) to build their Asia private equity programs. The Firm has an established LP Partnership Program that has been operating for approximately 14 years with four key components: (i) education for LPs on Asia and Asian private equity markets, including Asia Alternatives’ own in-house market research; (ii) access to fund managers (“GPs”) in Asia Alternatives’ investment portfolio through transparent reporting and facilitating meetings between GPs and LPs; (iii) providing opportunities to co-invest alongside of Asia Alternatives’ funds where appropriate; and (iv) best-practice reporting and dedicated, on-call client service support.
