Capital GF was founded by a group of investment professionals
A diverse range of experience gained in more than eight countries, CGF is not owned or influenced by any large institution; this guarantees independent decision making based on CGF's collective expertise.
CGF was founded in Indonesia in the 1990s to trade on the financial markets and later diversified with investments in precious metal mining in South America and the development of a property portfolio in London, as well as some sports management activities. South East Asia increasingly became the focus and an office was opened in Bangkok in 2014 facilitating further expansion and strategic investment in sport.
Whilst, the emerging markets of Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia remain important, our team of investment professionals also operate in Europe, investing in projects as a strategic partner alongside existing management teams. We look for businesses with the potential to grow in value with the assistance of our capital investment and experience. We have a strong focus on change of ownership deals and aim to invest between USD1 million and USD50 million of equity in each project. Each continent team operates with a high degree of autonomy to source and manage investments, leveraging our investment franchise but as true local participants. Teams are supported by a global governance structure and investment committee to ensure maximum alignment with our investors.
