The establishment of the Singapore office marks a significant milestone for Keensight Capital, solidifying its footprint in the Asia-Pacific region. Singapore is a global financial center and is at the forefront of innovation in both the Technology and Healthcare industries. Alongside a very dynamic business environment, Singapore offers a world-class multi-cultural talent pool.

This positions Singapore as an excellent hub to help Keensight Capital’s portfolio companies seize both organic and bolt-on growth opportunities in the region. In addition, the new office will serve as a strategic extension of the firm, enabling closer collaboration with local stakeholders, including entrepreneurs, industry experts, investors, sovereign wealth funds, and family offices.

The newly inaugurated office will be staffed by a seasoned team of professionals who bring a wealth of expertise to the table. In collaboration with Keensight Capital’s Operating Partners in the region, who have been instrumental in driving the expansion of its portfolio companies throughout Asia-Pacific, the office is set to further enhance this growth trajectory. Leveraging local resources, the team will focus on enriching market analysis, refining go-to-market strategies, optimizing supply chain procurement, facilitating mergers and acquisitions, and pursuing other strategic initiatives.

Jean-Michel Beghin, Managing Partner of Keensight Capital, stated: “We are thrilled to establish our presence in Singapore and become part of its dynamic business ecosystem. With our new office, we are well-positioned to leverage on the vast opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region and deliver exceptional results for our investors and portfolio companies.
