The credentials of New Silk Route's Founding Partners and its strategy to create a unique Asia-focused investment platform received strong support from the investment community. Fundraising for our first fund - New Silk Route PE Asia Fund LP - completed quickly and received commitments of US$1.4 billion from a blue chip roster of Limited Partners.

New Silk Route invests across rapidly-emerging economies in Asia and the Middle East, in rapidly growing or transforming sectors, and across the life-cycle of companies. The firm follows both a top-down approach focusing on macroeconomic investment themes, and bottom-up analysis which focus on evaluating potential portfolio companies based on their competitive position, track records, management teams and ability to execute a business plan and growth strategy.
