Capital Dynamics and China’s Diligence Capital establish strategic cooperation

Capital Dynamics, a private asset manager, and Diligence Capital, a China-based RMB fund of funds manager, have established a strategic cooperation to capture regional investment opportunities on behalf of China’s rapidly growing pool of institutional investors and Capital Dynamics’ global investor base.

Capital Dynamics will formally adopt Diligence Capital’s Chinese name for activities relating to China, while Diligence Capital will operate under the English-language brand “Capital Dynamics China”.
China, with its extraordinary growth and flourishing private equity market, is of increasing importance to both local and foreign private equity investors alike.
Capital Dynamics has been investing in China for nearly 10 years through global funds, regional and local funds, and affiliate funds. The strategic cooperation with Diligence Capital brings deep understanding of the local market and personal connections with many of China’s preeminent general partners. The partnership enhances Capital Dynamics’ Asian presence and complements the ongoing work of its teams based in Hong Kong and Tokyo, which were established in 2007 and 2010, respectively.
“We’re very excited to formally partner with such a highly respected member of the local Chinese investor community,” says Stefan Ammann (pictured), chief executive of Capital Dynamics. “With Diligence Capital, we’re working with an award-winning private equity team in China and gaining deep, local experience. We believe this sets us apart from our peers and helps us to fulfil our objective of connecting investors with timely, desirable investment opportunities in some of the world’s most attractive private equity markets.”
“Capital Dynamics, with its well-established global platform, is the perfect partner with which to expand our operations in China,” says Andy Ge, chief executive at Diligence Capital. “The firm’s long-standing international private equity expertise and practical experience in the development of various emerging private equity markets will be fundamental to success in the Greater China region. We’re looking forward to joining our local knowledge and expertise with Capital Dynamics’ global scope and infrastructure to create a ‘win-win’ for all of our clients.”
