How we operate?

Four business models adapted to our Client’s needs:
  1. The (family) SME retains us to identify Asian investors or strategic partners.
  2. The Asian or European investor retains us to build a target funnel and to liaise confidentially with identified targets.
  3. Private equity retains us to operationally assist divestiture of portfolio assets, and we use our network to provide a solution.
  4. We work on a project basis to resolve specific “pain points” of clients invested in Europe or Asia, including relocation, dispute resolution, market shifts, labour regulations, etc.

In each case, we commit to a success fee, complemented by a time and resource-based   retainer.

How are we different?

  1. We are headquartered in the heart of Europe with offices in Hong Kong as gateway to Asia.
  2. SRP is geopolitically unbiased and neutral. We base our advice purely on business logic and implement only in the best interests of our clients by bridging Europe and Asia.
  3. Our Team consists of experienced international senior executives, mostly former CEO’s and M&A specialists, who know the markets and can access their contacts with relevant top-level resources and targets relying on our experience and reputation.
  4. We are frontline” practitioners who have been around the block, not theoretical analysts or strategists.
  5. We are supported by our top-notch International Advisory Board
  6. Our core values are Professionalism, Agility and Integrity. We don’t compromise and provide honest feedback throughout the project, not “what the client wants to hear”.
  7. Since we work on a success fee basis, your success is also our reward.
