Prax Capital is an independent private equity firm whose managing partners have been working together since 2003 to invest in profitable and established companies in China, led by strong and ambitious management teams. We target market leaders that are well positioned for further expansion in various industries, with a focus on opportunities driven by China’s growing consumer spending and need for a cleaner environment.
We typically invest between US$10 million and US$50 million in minority-stake transactions that offer high liquidity potential and downside protection.
Currently, we are investing Prax Capital China Growth Fund III (2011).
Our managing partners have backgrounds in retail, consumer products, manufacturing and finance. The partners are operators and entrepreneurs, as well as financiers.
How we are Different
Strength in Operations: Since the firm’s beginning, we have been actively committed to working closely with our invested companies to help them improve. Operations is in our DNA.
Global Outlook, Local Engagement: Our partners have extensive international experience, but the team is based in Shanghai. This means we can make decisions prudently but quickly.
Built for Adding Value: Partly because we invest in a relatively small number of promising companies and partly because of our operations experience, we have the time, the resources and the team to help each of our invested companies grow.
