China Science & Merchants Investment Management Group (CSC), founded in 2000, is a preeminent private investment firm in China with US $10 Billion (RMB ¥ 60 Billion) of capital under management. CSC owns an extensive network in China via its local partners. Currently, CSC covers more than 100 cities and has built relationships with over 1000 LPs. This network provides an unique platform for CSC to acquire deep market insights and local know-hows, thus gives CSC the ability to identify valuable opportunities, as well as offer operational support to extract these values for its investors.
CSC seeks to deliver unique value to its portfolio companies beyond traditional private equity via its access to capital, talents and market (up/down stream) insights. Moreover, CSC is creating a new digital platform that would allow it to tender these capabilities to even broader set of entrepreneurs and investors. This would further enhance CSC’s reach and access. Finally, CSC aims to aggressively grow its international operation to offer more opportunities for its portfolio companies and better returns for its investors.
