Empowered teams make the biggest difference
Our core team has spent the last three decades dealing with institutional clients across regions - Greater China, North Asia, South East Asia, India, Europe and MENA region.
A few facts became increasingly evident. Very often, the right class of investors and asset managers had no visibility to each other.
Regional financial institutions (RFIs) tended to go with known global asset managers who had the distribution machinery to reach them. Brand name was the criteria. So, huge swathes of products & geographies remained untapped due to lack of knowledge and access. Institutional focussed asset managers were dealing with the other side of the coin - too few investors.
This gap was too big to be ignored. We founded RG to act as a bridge:
To create and structure products that would excite big ticket investors, and get the most reputed asset managers to run them
Distribute the same to regional players thereby giving them access to global institutional sized opportunities
We collaborate with asset managers and service clients across
Greater China, North Asia, South East Asia, India, Europe and MENA region.
We are a diverse organisation with a core team of finance professionals, bankers and domain experts. Our top talent has worked across 30 geographies for the biggest names in both the buy and sell side. RG brings you 100 plus years of combined experience.
