Asante Capital Group strengthens strategic focus in Asia

Asante Capital Group (Asante), an independent private equity placement and advisory group, has launched a series of strategic growth initiatives designed to enhance the firm’s ability to connect Asia-based GPs with allocators across the globe and strengthen their ability to penetrate Asian pools of capital.

Asante has GP clients throughout the region, including in China, India, Southeast Asia, Japan, and Australia. The firm has a demonstrated track record of harnessing their understanding of the market and investor demands to raise established funds across the region.

Among these initiatives and based on his proven industry expertise, relationships and leadership across the firm, Asante announced the promotion of Ricardo Felix, Head of Asia-Pacific, to Partner. Felix leads Asante’s already sizeable Asian office, based in Hong Kong. Throughout his eight years at Asante, Ricardo has developed significant connections with investors throughout Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Ricardo has deep experience working in private markets at top financial services institutions, including HSBC and JP Morgan, and since then has expanded on this through his experience leading private equity fundraisings at Asante.

Asante also recently appointed Steven Chan as a Director in the Hong Kong office. Chan previously worked as an Executive Director at Goldman Sachs’ Alternative Capital Markets Group and as a Vice President at MVision Private Equity Advisers, in both roles driving the execution of primary fundraising, co-investment and secondary advisory mandates across the Asia-Pacific region. Chan adds to the existing bench of talent in the Hong Kong office whose knowledge of the region, ability to work cross-culturally, and experience with the alternatives market make them great assets to Asian GPs.
