Azione Capital is a full-service placement agent representing venture capital and other illiquid alternative investment managers to a broad array of potential investors, emphasising distribution to Asian institutions yet with significant European and North American distribution capabilities. Our clients are managers with institutional-quality profiles in their respective arenas.
We serve institutional-quality fund management companies regardless of where they are headquartered. Our global perspective makes us an ideal partner for European, North American, and Latin American firms who wish to access the Asian institutional and family office investors.
Azione maintains relationships with the leading investors in private markets on a global basis. Our clients include family offices, government entities, foundations and endowments, pension funds, insurance companies, banks, specialist investment management firms, and the consultants and advisors of these firms. Separately, we have proprietary relationships with private equity funds in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. As a result, we have long-standing business relationships with decision-makers across all major investor groups and major institutional investor market segments.
Azione separately aims to deliver value to our limited partner networks and private placement and angel investors through researching, pre-qualifying, and accessing high quality investment opportunities. We seek to align our interests squarely with those of the investors in our network, through a rigorous selection process, seeking out opportunities of particular interest to our investor base, and through investing as principal in each of our transactions.
Integrity is fundamental to our business practice and to the value and validity of our service.
We are most concerned with the quality of people we represent and those to which we market.
We favour long-term opportunities over short-term ones. They may be more work, but they do more to develop firm discipline and to enhance our reputation.
We want to offer all clients the quality of service and environment they would expect from a large firm, but with the personalisation and interaction clients would expect from a small firm.
We prize ingenuity, creativity, and resourcefulness. How things have been done by others is an interesting reference, but each opportunity demands its own plan and solution. Therefore, new ideas are fully embraced.
