Our team looks to be a partner to our customers, contributing to their growth through the provision of financial support.
Additionally, by leveraging our extensive domestic and global networks, we do not only invest in its customers, but look to provide business solution services that further support the growth of the businesses of customers.
We provide pre-IPO investment for domestic enterprises in the mid to later stages of the IPO process. However, we also consider the provision of capital to customers outside of these stages depending upon the customer's development stage and industry via the establishment of a joint fund that is specialized for the customer's external partners/stage/industry, through which the Bank actively provides risk money.

Buy-out Investment

The Buyout Investment Team at Shinsei Corporate Investment utilizes its own funds and provides "hands-on" management support to small and medium sized enterprises with business succession needs.
Our potential customers would include but are not limited to customers with the following needs:

  • Enterprises in need of a successor to manage their business but do not have strong candidates either within the company or amongst relatives, and require additional time to raise a successor
  • Enterprises seeking a trustworthy partner that will buy and hold company shares while developing the business together
  • Enterprises seeking a final round of equity finance prior to going public through an IPO

As a general rule, we require a majority ownership stake in the enterprise it is investing in via a fund structure. Shinsei Corporate Investment will then work to add value to and increase the enterprise's total value by dispatching professionals to the enterprise in order to assist in the restructuring of management, refining business growth strategies and executing business plans.
