Cathay Capital Private Equity signs with eFront for cross-border investments between France and China

eFront, the leading software solutions provider for the financial industry, is pleased to announce that Cathay Capital Private Equity has selected the FrontInvest platform to support its investment operations. FrontInvest Alternatives is the global frontrunner in alternative asset management platforms.

Cathay Capital Private Equity supports companies in defining and executing development strategies in the West and in Asia, particularly in China. The company is the first French-Chinese private equity firm focused on growth capital. Its mission is to provide companies with outstanding financial engineering skills and business expertise, helping them thrive in new markets. Cathay Capital Private Equity’s diverse, multicultural and close-knit team offers both financial expertise and in-depth knowledge of both Western and Chinese markets. The firm’s investment philosophy is to provide long-term assistance to Western companies in China and support Chinese companies in their globalization strategies.

As a result of growing investment opportunities with European and Chinese companies, Cathay Capital decided to select a solution that would help support and develop its investment strategies. The company is currently raising another fund and needed to easily share critical information between the teams in France and China for informed decision making. Cathay Capital was impressed by FrontInvest’s ability to support European and Chinese private equity companies, providing local services, support and a strong knowledge of local private equity operations.

Mingpo CAI, President of Cathay Capital, commented: “Cathay Capital’s competencies, unified in a single team located in different offices, required a seamless and high-quality information sharing process. As a global provider with offices in the USA, Europe and Asia, we are convinced that eFront will contribute to the structure and growth of our organization.”

Béatrice Vachonfrance, COO FrontInvest Continental Europe at eFront, added: “The team we have met at Cathay is driven by an entrepreneurial mindset. We really appreciate their objectives of developing, improving, innovating and achieving international expansion, a key success in today’s business world. We are very happy to welcome Cathay Capital Private Equity as a new client, both in France and China.”
