Symphony is a strategic investment company. It is managed by one of the most experienced investment teams in Asia.

We provide opportunities for investors to gain exposure to the region’s rapidly expanding markets by investing in companies in particular high-growth sectors - primarily healthcarehospitality, lifestyle and branded real estate - which will benefit from the rising disposable incomes of Asia’s increasing, and increasingly aspirational, population.

Our team is led by Anil Thadani, who founded one of Asia’s first private equity businesses and has been investing in the region for more than 30 years. 

Our business is structured as a permanent capital vehicle to enable us, where necessary, to take a long-term view of our investments. In contrast to traditional private equity funds, our decisions on investing and divesting are not, therefore, influenced by restricted life-cycles. In addition, our structure gives investors more flexibility: it enables them to liquidate or, indeed, add to their positions whenever they choose.

Typically, we invest in transactions that involve growth capital for later-stage development and expansion, management buy-outs/buy-ins, restructurings and special situations. Where we see a special opportunity, we may also invest a smaller portion of our investment capital in earlier-stage businesses. In addition, and unlike most private equity businesses, we invest in real estate development: we develop projects designed to appeal to the evolving lifestyles of Asia’s increasingly wealthy demographic.

Our shares are traded on the main market of the London Stock Exchange.
