Tell us about your background, and how you came to found your company?
I'm HKongese graduated at the Chinese University of HK. Later I earn my MBA from London Business School and AMP from Harvard Business School. For the past 27 years I have been working in mainland China for MNCs as senior executives like Phillips, GE, Novartis and Netease. Later on I started my own business in China and earned initial capital then I formed a private equity fund with Mr Ratan Tata focused on China-India cross border high tech startup investment. Now I found another private equity fund incorporated in Cayman Island called V Capital with its advisory company called Leaders Capital Limited in HK. It's a China and pan-Asia focus fund with a fund size of 500 million USD mainly focused on the sectors of digital future, advanced manufacturing and Asia Consumer. We do have infrastructure and property investment outside HK as well. www.leaders-capital.com

Like all other industries, private equity and venture capital is under great competition and the returns from operation is going downward.
