One of our key strategies includes investing in line with the overall macro economic environment and the country's strategic initiatives and policies adopted for long term growth and sustainability. To illustrate, Inventis commenced venturing into western and central parts of China before 2010 when China adopted the "Go West" policy to encourage growth in its inland regions. Inventis also invested in companies that would benefit from China's One Belt, One Road policy.
Inventis has an established track record of partnering with entrepreneurs and management teams to build successful businesses across a broad range of industries. We develop strategic growth plans with our stakeholders including inorganic and organic growth, as well as corporate re-organizations. Leveraging on our international and proprietary network, we also support the management teams by introducing advanced packages such as management reporting systems and operational systems, in order to position our portfolio companies for the next phase of growth.
Inventis is a leader in investing in China for the last sixteen years and has a differentiated investment strategy, including having proprietary deal sourcing capabilities.
We also adopt a disciplined investment process to find the right investment target. Part of our success is attributed to our rigorous due diligence framework, as well as our ability to hone in and address the most important issues efficiently.
As a growth-focused private equity firm, we invest in relatively established companies that are seeking to transform their business with the additional capital to either expand or restructure operations, enter new markets, amongst others. Generally speaking, the typical investment size for each investment is at least US$50mn for a minority stake, with the exception for some unique situations where we may invest a smaller amount. The typical length of our investments is about 5 years.
Although we are sector agnostic, we aim to balance the overall portfolio so as not to be over-weighted in any particular investment or sector.
