Origination and Deal Flow Sourcing
We apply both Top-down and Bottom-up approaches for deal sourcing
The top-down approach starts by identifying the attractive sectors, followed by the attractive companies operating within those sectors. The top-down approach attempts to understand the sector structure and overall business performance as well as possible impacts from macro economy changes that could significantly affect the sector’s development.
The bottom-up approach starts by identifying the attractive companies via a screening exercise of database of companies based on some key financial performance indicators such as earnings growth, profitability ratios, valuation multiples and financial health
