ACP Value Add

ACP believes taking active ownership in companies and proactively seeking to increase their earnings through growth or operational improvements is fundamental to successful private equity investing. Aside from operational improvements, siginificant value may be generated through market timing of individual acquisitions and divestments, as well as through the optimization of capital structures. ACP believes that the latter two depend to a larger extent on the macroeconomic environment, whereas the capability to drive operational improvement is to a greater extent attributable to the skillset and network of the manager.

In particular, ACP will seek to add value to portfolio companies in the ways outlined below:

  • Access to various forms of additional capital, including equity from co investors, a range of debt and credit enhancement instruments provided by ADB, climate finance facilities sponsored by multilateral organizations, as well as commercial debt from partner organizations
     
  • Experience of Partners and senior team members as early movers in the target sectors having deployed over USD 1.5 bn of equity capital to date
     
  • Dedicated team of experienced investment professionals based in Hong Kong with access to “on the ground” market insight and intelligence through the 49 offices of Robeco, ORIX and ADB across Asia
     
  • Strong sovereign relationships and deep policy/regulatory expertise may help mitigate key risks
     
  • Rigorous and proven ESG strategy and impact monitoring system to reduce risks and create value
     
  • Exit preparation leveraging on Robeco's public market expertise and the platform's diversified network to establish the necessary relationships early on
