BDA Capital Partners provides growth equity capital for entrepreneur-backed businesses in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. It was established by seasoned investment professionals with decades of experience in the region and a strong track record of identifying and backing promising enterprises.
While managed and operated as an independent private equity investment platform, BDA Capital Partners is affiliated with BDA Partners, the global investment banking advisor for Asia. As such, BDA Capital Partners has access to the broad relationship network and intellectual and tactical insights from experienced M&A professionals who have operated in the region since 1996.
Importantly, BDA Capital Partners focuses on opportunities that are outside the scope of BDA Partners’ core M&A advisory mandate.
