Investors seeking higher-than-average returns from private equity will also be able to access such opportunities via the CapBridge private markets platform. According to a McKinsey & Co report, the private equity market in South Korea is the third largest in Asia and poised for more growth1. Global and local acquisitions and private capital committed have been steadily increasing, and returns from private equity have significantly outstripped the public market. Investors interested to participate in private equity capital raising campaigns by global growth companies can access such opportunities on CapBridge (www.capbridge.sg), where institutional investors lead deals with individual co-investors jointly investing on the same terms. Individual investors can also gain access to private equity via the innovative Preferred Access route, from as low as S$5,000 – enabling individuals to commit smaller investment amounts across multiple deals as a way to diversify portfolios.
