Navis Capital enters Vietnam, Indonesia

Reading Time: 1 minute

VietnamNavis Capital, a Malaysia-based private equity firm, has announced plans to open offices in Vietnam and Indonesia, bringing their pan-Asia network to nine.

Eternally on the lookout for the fastest growing markets in need of capital, buyout firms have been increasingly scoping out deals in Southeast Asia as the economic machines of China and India take a more tepid course and the West continues to stagnate.

According to the International Monetary Fund, the ASEAN-5’s GDP growth forecast, which consists of the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand, was 5.6 per cent for 2012, and is expected to continue outpacing world output growth. Outside of the Southeast Asian heavyweight club, Cambodia and Laos have also taken off, expanding by 7 per cent and 8.2 per cent in 2012, respectively.

Overshadowed by their giant neighbours for over a decade, Southeast Asia is just emerging from a dark era cast upon them in the wake of the Asian financial crisis in 1997/98.

Bloomberg has now predicted that private equity inflows will increase with an internal rate of return between 15 per cent and 25 per cent over the next five years.

Of the ASEAN economies, Thailand and Indonesia look to be the best bet because of their scale advantage, while Malaysia stands at a much less favourable level purely because of a lower population.
