AXA Private Equity is opening an office in Beijing, the firm’s first in China.

The move will boost the firm’s presence in Asia as it continues its international growth strategy.

AXA Private Equity opened its first Asian office in Singapore in 2005 and has since deployed USD1.3bn of capital across the region. The firm now has a total of 10 offices across Europe, North America and Asia.

The opening of the Beijing office forms an important part of AXA Private Equity’s international development strategy, as Beijing has become an increasingly active commercial and financial hub in the Asia region. The Beijing office will allow the firm to strengthen its relationships with key private equity market players and the business community in Asia.

AXA Private Equity’s Beijing office will be headed by Jenhao Han, managing director and head of AXA Private Equity Asia. He will be supported by three investment professionals with significant knowledge of the Asian market: Won Ha, Jason Yao, and Colin Wang, all of whom were previously based in AXA Private Equity’s Singapore office.

Dominique Senequier, chief executive, AXA Private Equity, says: “Despite the ongoing economic uncertainty, we continue to look to the future with our new Beijing office.  Our increasing global visibility and ability to attract new investors from Asia, America, Europe and the Middle East, ideally positions us to further capitalize on the significant opportunities for our investors and portfolio companies in China.”

Han adds: “Having a presence in China means we can now further develop our relationships with our Asian counterparties, while increasing our ability to take advantage of the best investment opportunities in the region. A physical presence in China will enable the team to identify synergies between European and Asian portfolios and gain access to more co-investment opportunities. This is an exciting prospect for us.”
